Recent studies have found elevated dioxin levels inside some U.S. military former air basesin Vietnam, known as hotspots. Many studies of Agent Orange have been done in U.S.veterans; however, there is little known about Vietnamese men. In 2010, we collected bloodsamples from 97 men in a hotspot and 85 men in an unsprayed area in Northern Vietnam.Serum concentrations of not only TCDD but also other dioxins (PCDDs), furans (PCDFs), andnonortho polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) were significantly higher in the hotspot than inthe unsprayed area. In the hotspot, three subareas were demarcated, based on theirproximity to the air base. The total toxic equivalents (TEQ) of PCDDs/PCDFs+PCBs was 41.7pg/g lipid in the area closest to the air base, while it was around 29 pg/g lipid in the othertwo subareas. In the unsprayed area, the dioxin levels were no different between men whowent to the South during the Vietnam War and those who remained in the North, with TEQsPCDDs/PCDFs+PCBs of around 13.6 pg/g lipid. Our findings suggested that people living close
