Summary
United States military forces sprayed about 20 million gallons of herbicides in Vietnam during the Vietnam conflict. The spraying was done to destroy crops, to clear vegetation, and to cause trees and plants to lose their leaves. United States ground troops came in contact with these herbicides when they patrolled the sprayed areas. Fifteen different herbicides were used, including over 11 million gallons of an herbicide called Agent Orange. Started in 1962, the spraying reached a high point exposed to herbicide components bore offspring with birth defects. The spraying was discontinued in 1971. In December 1979, Congress passed Public Law 96-151, which directed va to do a study to assess any long-term health effects on Vietnam veterans caused by exposed to dioxin, a component of Agent Orange. The law required the Office Technology Assessment (OTA) to approve the study design, called a protocol, and to monitor the study to ensure compliance with the approved protocol
