Filed under: Health in the MediaThe chemicals used for various purposes in history's wars are generally scrutinized long after for the possible affects they have on soldiers - from both sides.
As such, the infamous Agent Orange chemical that was used to deforest jungles in Vietnam decades ago is now being linked to a rising of blood pressure in veterans that were exposed to it during the Vietnam War.
This won't be the last, of course. Are chemicals used to try and assist military efforts in many wars worth it when they come back to actually harm the soldiers they were initially used to help? That's a discussion best left to veterans that now are seeing effects from chemicals like these, and they're the only ones qualified to have a voice here in my opinion.
