USA and Vietnam

30 USA companies, (including DOW Chemicals and Monsanto) are sued by people in Vietnam who suffered after their country was sprayed with Agent Orange, a defoloient containing Dioxin.

Dioxin is linked to respiratory and reproductive problems (including birth defects and miscarriages), cancer, diabetes and other conditions. It is estimated that up to 4 million Vietnamese people suffered from being poisoned by Dioxin. Around $ 300 million has been paid to USA troops who fought in the Vietnam-USA War (1954 - 1975) and were affected by Dioxin but nothing has been paid to the Vietnamese victims.
