We are disappointed that no such clear statement that 250,000 veterans remain ill exists in the Draft Task Force report when a VA researcher, Dr. Han Kang, is credited with this important conclusion in his peer-reviewed study, "Health of US Veterans of 1991 Gulf War: A Follow-Up Survey in 10 Years," published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine in April 2009.

Agent Orange, a weed killer containing dioxin, was widely used during the Vietnam War, Dr. Han K. Kang of the Department of Veterans Affairs in Washington, DC and colleagues note in the American Journal of Industrial Medicine.Overall, two thirds of the herbicides used during the conflict contained dioxin.
To understand the long-term effects of exposure to the chemicals, Kang and his team compared 1,499 members of the US Army Chemical Corps to 1,428 vets who had worked in chemical operations jobs but did not serve in Vietnam.The Chemical Corps members had been responsible for spraying herbicide around base camp perimeters, as well as aerial spraying of the chemicals from helicopters.
Study participants were surveyed by telephone in 1999 and 2000.
