Story of Agent Orange
Orange Talking Paper
Agent Orange is the name now loosely given to all herbicides used during the
Vietnam War to contaminate water and defoliate crops and jungles to deprive the
enemy of food and cover, named after the orange stripe on the drums in which the
Agent Orange herbicide was stored. The herbicides contain tetrachlorodibenzo-para-dioxin
(TCDD), often referred to as simply dioxin.
million gallons of Agent Orange were reported to have been used in South
Vietnam, where over 6,250 square miles still cannot be farmed 30 years later due
to the contamination. Agent Orange
wasn't alone. There was a rainbow arsenal of herbicides, including Agent
Blue (which contained arsenic), Agent Pink, Agent White, Agent Green, Agent
Orange II (Super Orange), Agent Purple, Silvex, Dinoxol, Trinoxol, Diquat,
Bromacil, Tandex, Monuron, Diuron, and Dalapon.
the herbicides were widely used in the U.S., they usually were heavily diluted
with water or oil. The military sprayed herbicides in Vietnam that were 6
to 25 times the rate suggested by the manufacturer.
make matters worse, to destroy large areas of forest and jungle with fire, the
military started dropping incendiaries on defoliated areas. What they
didn't know was that burning cancer-causing dioxins significantly further
increased their toxicity. The American
soldiers in Vietnam, South Koreans, and Vietnamese continued to live in a chemical mist --
they slept with it, drank it in their water, ate it in their food, breathed it
in, and bathed in it.
later revealed that as little as 2 parts of dioxin per trillion in the
bloodstream was sufficient to cause death and abnormal births; many GIs were
returning home from Vietnam with 50 parts per trillion and more in their
bloodstream. Dioxin was still found in the sperm of men who fought in
Vietnam over 20 years later.
U.S., South Korean, and Vietnamese veterans of the Vietnam War and civilians are
now suffering from various lifelong chronic medical problems after being exposed to defoliants such
as Agent Orange (2,4,5-T), which were contaminated with
carcinogenic dioxin. Studies have indicated that dioxin poisoning and
its effects are also able to pass to offspring.
problems include an abnormally high number of soft tissue cancers such as lung
cancer, Hodgkin's disease, liver cancer, stomach cancer, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, chronic
lymphocytic leukemia, nasal cancer, nasopharyngeal cancer, prostate cancer, and other cancers,
nervous system disorders, immune system damage, liver dysfunction, painful skin
conditions like chloracne, systemic injury, chronic pain, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome,
post-traumatic stress disorder, fibromyalgia, multiple myeloma, wild mood swings, anxiety, chemical sensitivities, and birth
defects. Living with these medical conditions makes it difficult for a
person to function as a productive member of society, often leading to
unemployment, isolation from family, homelessness, hunger, and a host of other
problems. (For severe cancer sufferers, consider purchasing a copy of the
Cure for All Advanced Cancers containing a natural program with a 95%
On a cellular level, Dioxin, like
many other chemicals, drugs, antibiotics, and toxic elements can
attach to receptors for transport into cells where it can damage the nucleus,
DNA, and mitochondria, where 90% of the body's energy is produced, leading to an
inability to properly process and use nutrients, neural dysfunction, lack of
oxygen delivery to the body, a weakened immune system, and many other related
problems. In a dysfunctional and toxic body with a weakened immune system,
disease can flourish.
According to the Department of Defense, as of Nov. 22,
2004, 21 percent of the 361,226 active duty soldiers who have deployed and returned from service in Iraq and Afghanistan since January 2003 have reported medical
concerns relating to mental health, dermatological, and pulmonary ailments, and
many were concerned by the environmental exposures they experienced in the
Hundreds of thousands of veterans of the 1991 Gulf War have experienced undiagnosed illnesses they believe are linked to the war, according to Congress' auditing arm. These ailments include chronic fatigue, loss of muscle control, diarrhea, migraines, dizziness, memory problems, and loss of balance.
Veterans Affairs Secretary Anthony Principi's panel found that more recent studies suggest the veterans' illnesses are neurological and apparently are linked to exposure to neurotoxins such as the nerve gas sarin, the anti-nerve gas drug pyridostigmine bromide and pesticides that affect the nervous system.
"Research studies conducted since the war have consistently indicated that psychiatric illness, combat experience, or other deployment-related stressors do not explain Gulf War veterans illnesses in the large majority of ill veterans," the review committee said.
have also frequently been exposed while in the military to a large number of foods
that have been irradiated to prolong their shelf life, and these irradiated
foods are making their way into our grocery stores. Although a small
radiation label is now required on many of the foods, the marking is
intentionally deceptive, made to look as if it represents something natural, in
the shape of a green circle with what appears to be a flower inside of it.
of course there are fumes from trucks, choking smoke from oil fires, dust from
demolished buildings, and so on -- many sources of toxic health hazards, yet
none likely as hazardous as the rainbow arsenal of herbicides.
Although Veterans and
others have been fighting for years for recognition of their conditions,
treatment of their resulting health problems, and compensation for their
injuries and suffering to little avail, for those who received treatment, the
treatment may be worse than the disease itself. Chemotherapy
and other forms of
radiation, drugs, invasive surgery, and other unnatural therapies do more harm to the body than
good. One of the leading
causes of death in this country is from orthodox medicine, whether it be
from physician error, drug side
effects, or from other related

you have a good understanding and are able to make an informed decision.
Most people don't realize that they are continuously taking in large amounts of
cumulative toxic elements in their food and water that can hinder
recovery. You can make great progress without much money through a strict non-toxic
diet and lifestyle, but if you do have money, take
advantage of the potent supplements available and proven natural treatments from
naturopathic practitioners. If you take no action, odds are you will get
worse. The proof will be in how you feel. Most people improve
quickly by adhering strictly to the following guidelines, especially eliminating
toxic ingredients they have been ingesting:
NATURAL HEALTH CARE. If you are fortunate enough to be able
to afford it, consider alternative and
complementary natural medical treatments from professional

REMOVE ALL TOXINS AND DON'T PUT MORE TOXINS IN. This means not just
residue of toxins remaining in your body, but don't put any more toxins in your
body. Many people don't realize how many toxins
they continue to put in their bodies from food and other sources that
prevent the body from healing. This is not a diet, but how we are meant to
eat naturally, and how we should eat for life to repair and sustain the body.
- Remove toxins using binding foods
(foods that grab toxins stored in fatty tissue and remove them), such as
whole grains , foods with high fiber, and organic (chemical-free) vegetables
and fruits. Detoxification
supplements with natural plant binders can
also be purchased that will help cleanse the body.
- Eliminate toxic intake and exposure.

Also, if possible, wean yourself off of
all toxic drugs slowly to avoid severe withdrawal symptoms and stop
exposure to radiation
treatments, but if you must take drugs while taking
herbs, vitamins, or supplements, refer to the drug/herb
interaction chart. If you work around chemicals and must breathe
them, change jobs. If you use chemical-containing cleaning products
and other chemical products in your home, throw them out and use natural
- No alcohol, no tobacco, no caffeine, no
drugs, no diet products, no processed sugars, no white products, no tap
water. Cigarettes, drugs, tap
products, and processed
white products contain many harmful chemicals and toxins, and alcohol and other
sugars feed yeast and bacteria in the body and hinder healing. Diet
products containing aspartame and other neurotoxins are deadly to the body.
When quitting processed sugars, white flours, and other chemical-containing
foods, you may feel worse before you feel better. This is because your
body typically will experience withdrawal symptoms for a week to 10 days
after being addicted to the drugs in foods. Side
effects of quitting may include headache, nervousness, depression, and
worsening of your symptoms temporarily, but it will pass quickly. Read
all food labels for any chemical additives. Only buy products that
contain basic food ingredients you understand, and preferably nutrient-rich

system builders include fresh organic garlic,
selenium-containing foods such as naturally-raised eggs (free of steroids,
antibiotics, and other chemicals), organic cottage cheese, natural low-fat white
chicken meat (free of steroids, antibiotics, and other chemicals), whole grains
(whole spelt, oat, rye, quinoa, and sprouted grains-- avoid wheat products for
now as diseased bodies often become sensitive to gluten), at least 6 servings of
organic vegetables and fruits daily, brown rice, wild rice, brazil nuts,
organic apples, raw thymus, sunflower seeds, vitamin C (high doses - 3,000-5,000
mg a day), cat's

as possible. You may also want to purchase a potent supplemental immune
REPAIR CELLULAR DAMAGE. This is more complicated. Many have
claimed this is not possible, but studies in rats have shown that mitochondria
can be rejuvenated using the essential amino acids alpha-lipoic
acid and acetyl-L-carnitine.
Also, high-dose coenzyme
Q10 improves cellular oxygenation, and Essiac
formula is an excellent cancer fighter that
additionally helps promote cellular repair. If you can afford it, a new
spectroscopic test is now available from Spectracell
Laboratories that detects abnormalities in white blood cells and can
determine what specific deficiencies exist in your body. Guaifenesin
has been said to effectively treat muscle pain in fibromyalgia sufferers by reinforcing the
cellular wall and blocking the further entry of toxins into the cell, thus
helping mitochondria to continue making adenosine triphosphate (ATP) -- where
our body gets 90% of its energy, and which is used in large amounts by the
muscles. Since you
can usually only get Guaifenesin in sinus medications with side effects, I would recommend all-natural Herbal
Expec available from Naturade, as it has a
potent but all-natural formula.

Since our soil
is damaged and depleted from the use of yet more chemicals, our produce does not often contain
sufficient minerals and nutrients to sustain our body in good health, thus it has become
critically important, even if well, to take at least basic supplemental multivitamins
with minerals and other nutrients for
life. Also, since a diseased body does not easily
absorb nutrients, and many nutrients are lost in the gut, eat foods with, or buy
supplements that contain, fatty
acids (EPA/GLA) to help aid absorption.
Fatty acids are naturally found in organic
flax seeds, extra virgin olive oil, coconut
oil, avocados, black currants, organic butter, borage,
and fish and fish
oil such as from cod (only buy small deep-sea
northern ocean fish to avoid mercury and other chemicals). Also, keep your
balance in mind when selecting your diet. Many people eat diets that
make their body overly acidic and encourage disease. Chewing well also
helps your body absorb the most nutrients directly into the blood stream before
the food reaches the gut and helps maintain a pH balance.

high-power lines. Limit cellphone use and use radiation
neutralizers (that convert harmful DNA-mutating frequencies into natural
frequencies that do not harm the body) on cellphones, televisions, hair dryers,
and other electrical appliances whenever possible. I have seen brain scans
of people exposed to these devices for only short periods of time versus a
normal brain, and the effect on the brain is alarming.
EXERCISE, BREATH, AND MAINTAIN A POSITIVE ATTITUDE. Walking or moving
even just your arm or leg for only 5 minutes will help, and build up as you feel
able to. Even the slightest increase in blood circulation, which delivers
healing properties throughout the body, will boost the immune system and help
your body heal itself. You will increase oxygen intake, which can destroy
bacteria and viruses that do not thrive in oxygenated environments, and you will
relieve stress. Breath in deeply and slowly through the nose, and out more
forcefully through the mouth. Walking, biking, hiking, or just relaxing in outdoor environments is best with sunshine and
fresh oxygen from trees. Unless you can afford a whole-house cleaner and
fresh-air ventilation system, when indoors crack open windows as much as
possible to limit exposure to indoor stagnant environments that lack fresh
oxygen and are actually more polluted with thousands of household
chemicals that outgas, molds, and other contaminants.
