Ten-year-old Pham Duc Duy is cradled in the arms of his mother, Nguyen Thi Thanh Van, 35, in their house in Hanoi June 16, 2007. Vietnamese doctors believe Duy, whose grandfather served in the Vietnam war, is a victim of exposure to dioxin passed down the generations. Several major U.S. chemical companies are directly accountable for supplying the U.S. military with dioxin, or "agent orange," during the Vietnam War and causing widespread dioxin poisoning, a lawyer for Vietnamese plaintiffs told a federal appeals court on June 18, 2007.

U.S. warplanes dropped about 18 million gallons of the defoliant on southern Vietnam for most of the 1960s. The defoliant released dioxins that have been blamed for health problems in people exposed. The United States has maintained there is no scientifically proven link between the wartime spraying and the claims of dioxin poisoning by more than 3 million people in Vietnam.

VIETNAMESE CHILDREN SUFFERING BIRTH DEFECTS DUE TO AGENT ORANGE.
Vietnamese children who doctors say are suffering from birth defects due to their parents' exposure to chemical defoliants during the Vietnam War race wheelchairs in the grounds of the Vietnam Friendship Village near Hanoi January 4. Tom Corey, national vice-president of the Vietnam Veterans of America, Inc said on Monday that Washington could this year finally release money to fund research into the wartime use of Agent Orange and other defoliants. During the Vietnam War, the United States sprayed millions of litres of chemical defoliants over vast areas of the country. Vietnam says around two million adults were exposed and affected, while there are around 100,000 children who suffer defects due to their parents' exposure.
