VAST Feedback to articles from ABC News:


Dear ABC News:

As a Vietnamese, I am really heartbroken when viewing the pictures in "Agent Orange's Horrific Legacy" from David Guttenfelder.  However, it appears to be bias and misleading to say that Agent Orange is the horrific legacy because many non-Agent Orange sources such as pesticides and toxic chemicals, including dioxin-like compounds, have also been found at elevated levels in many areas throughout Vietnam, particularly the vicinity of the Danang airport.  These pesticides and toxic chemicals can cause all health problems shown in the pictures.

Thank you.
