The scientific evidence that Dioxins are transmitted intergenerationally via sperm.
This information is of critical interest to all veterans exposed to dioxins and chemicals as well as farmers and fruit growers using the dioxins listed in this article.
Dioxin (TCDD) Induces Epigenetic Transgenerational Inheritance of Adult Onset Disease and Sperm Epimutations
Mohan Manikkam, Rebecca Tracey, Carlos Guerrero-Bosagna, Michael K. Skinner*
Environmental compounds can promote epigenetic transgenerational inheritance of adult-onset disease in subsequent generations following ancestral exposure during fetal gonadal sex determination. The current study examined the ability of dioxin (2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo[p]
provide potential epigenetic biomarkers for transgenerational disease and ancestral environmental exposures. Observations demonstrate dioxin exposure of a gestating female promotes epigenetic transgenerational inheritance of adult onset disease and sperm epimutations.

As many of you will know I have asserted this for many years yet the government continually denies any knowledge or interest. My own PhD explored the likelihood of this in Australian Vietnam Vets. Seems I was right.
I have sent a copy to DVA. Please forward a copy to you local member and all you believe would benefit from this information.
