    It isnt just the Dioxin. The troops mixed the defoliant with military jet fuel (JP) to get it to cling to the vegetation. This is why so many troops from other branches get same/similar health issues. Gulf War JP was used in a wide variety of newer troop support gear. JP was poured on the ground to keep dust down and critters out of tents,etc. Look up the MSDS for JP. Reads similar/same human healthe risk as chemicals containing Dioxin.
