The new knowledge about Agent Orange and dioxin must have presented the locals with mixed messages.
Over the years, there have been both American and Vietnamese plaintiffs in Agent Orange court cases in the United States.
"VA has recognized certain cancers and other health problems as presumptive diseases associated with exposure to Agent Orange or other herbicides during military service," (http://www.publichealth.va.gov/exposures/agentorange/conditions/) the VA website states .
In 2013, the Association for Victims of Agent Orange in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, filed its fourth lawsuit against the American chemical companies that produced Agent Orange.
In 2013, 22 steel barrels were discovered under a municipal football pitch in Okinawa with claims that traces of Agent Orange were found in some of the chemicals inside.
Scientific evidence of the dangers of Agent Orange and its dioxin contaminants might have been inconclusive, but in combination with the prevailing mood of mistrust toward government in the 1970s it was sufficiently persuasive to prompt Richard Nixon's order for the destruction of the army's herbicide stockpile.
The US authorities deny any Agent Orange was buried on Okinawa but Mr Mitchell's articles are leading to calls for a major investigation into the scale of any buried Agent Orange chemicals in the area.
To find a link between Agent Orange exposure and life-threatening, or high-grade, prostate cancer, Nathan Ansbaugh, MPH, designed and conducted analyses on a group of 2,720 US Veterans who were referred by multiple providers for initial prostate biopsy.
Agent Orange received its name from the orange-colored stripe that was used to identify the contents of the 40 gallon barrel in which the chemical was shipped and stored.
Agent Orange directors Gulliver and Luke Hill said a pre-Christmas completion was essential.
Hundreds of planes took off every day from the base, including many that sprayed the toxic defoliant Agent Orange over nearby jungles to destroy the vegetation that provided cover to Vietcong fighters and North Vietnamese troops.
One of the most commonly used defoliants was an herbicide-hormone mixture known as Agent Orange.
