Birth Defects Position Paper 1/14/2010

We now know that when we send service members in harm's way, battlefields toxins also place the future offspinrg of those service member's in harm's way.

Children are our future. We have all heard that common saying. What is the future of the children of Vietnam veterans and other veterans with toxic, service-related exposures? There is a growing realization that both maternal and paternal toxic exposures play a role in the birth defects of the children and future generations of the exposed individuals. Research in the field of epigenetics also points toward toxic exposures turning on or off genes that, when passed on to the child, could lead to the onset of diseases later in life.
