Abstract

The Joint Russo-Vietnamese Science and Technology Tropical Center in Hanoi has been performing long-term studies on the consequences of chemical pollution of nature in Vietnam after the massive use of dioxin-containing defoliants by the US army during its participation (1961–1973) in the Second Indo-Chinese War (the late 1950s–1975). The results of these studies are given in the article below.
