The impact of health issues on the nation’s veterans will in time confront our children and grandchildren in the form of genetically modified organisms (GMO).

The greatest threat to public health is genetically modified organism (GMO) plant production by Monsanto Company (Agent Orange and Bt cotton) and Pfizer, Inc. (Zyklon B. Holocaust gas). Both have research facilities in the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta to produce GMO’s.

Veterans' health today, our children and grandchildren tomorrow?
The impact of health issues on the nation’s veterans will in time confront our childrenand grandchildren in the form of genetically modified organisms (GMO).The greatest threat to public health is genetically modified organism (GMO) plantproduction by Monsanto Company (Agent Orange and Bt cotton) and Pfizer, Inc.(Zyklon B. Holocaust gas). Both have research facilities in the Yazoo-MississippiDelta to produce GMO’s.Our nation’s veterans suffered from the impact of Agent Orange for years before theVeterans Administration acknowledged causation of toxic exposure to dioxin, adefoliant used in Vietnam to kill the jungle like conditions that provided cover for the enemy. The herbicideutilized two chemicals--2, 4-D and 2, 4, 5-T that was linked to a variety of health disorders: headaches,liver and blood disorders, nerve damage, cancer.Now we know that veterans, who served in Vietnam and were exposed to Agent Orange, had their DNAmutated by exposure to herbicides, and unknowingly passed on genetic mutations to their unborn.Interesting enough the male and female veterans may have children born with spina bifida, but the womanveteran exposed to dioxin may have child with a whole host of different medical conditions supportinggenetic mutation.With this history now well defined the Agent Orange Benefits Act, was passed in 1996 to provide benefitsfor Vietnam veterans’ children who were born with spina bifida, as a result of Agent Orange exposure.These benefits include lifetime health care services for children with spina bifidaand “any disability associated” with spina bifida, a monthly monetary allowance ranging from$200.00-$1,200.00, and Veterans Affairs (VA) vocational training/rehabilitation services.In the late summer of 1966, the Zoology Department of Mississippi State University was asked to examineevidence and information related to the fish kill that occurred in the Choccolocco Creek in March 1966 in Anniston, Alabama. The research was conducted by Dr. Denzel Ferguson, who has since passed away in1998, and two graduate assistants, George Murphy, now at Middle Tennessee State and Mack Finley,now at Austin Peay.“The tests involved placing cages filled with 25 live bluegill fish at thirteen different locations in the systemof waterways that accepted wastes from the Monsanto Plant. A branch of Snow Creek originating in theMonsanto plant was found to be ‘devoid of life’. All the 25 fish turned on their sides in 10 seconds and allwere dead in 3 minutes.”In August 21 2003 after a long running trial it was announced that Monsanto Company and Solutia, Inc,
