Agent Orange Linked to Erectile Dysfunction in Vietnam Vets
A pesticide known as “agent orange” was used extensively by the US military during the Vietnam War. They used this chemical to clear out huge sections of forest in order to prevent enemies from hiding and using its resources to survive. Many members of the army were exposed to it and now some of them suffer from erectile dysfunction.
Researchers believe there is a link between the pesticide and impotence in the Vietnams war veterans. Agent Orange has also been identified in several medical conditions such as diabetes and deformities, but impotence has just recently been suggested as another side effect from the exposure to this chemical.

The US government is now offering compensation to the thousands of veterans who have been exposed to Agent Orange. Critics claim that the chemical cannot cause impotence and the condition should be ruled out. However, the government is still backing veterans on this and will support them with resources for treating the conditions related to this pesticide.
What kind of support will Veterans get?
It is still unclear on what taxpayers will be funding. Medications such as Levitra, Viagra and Cialis are currently the most popular treatment methods for erectile dysfunction and impotence. The government will most likely offer support and resources to veterans in obtaining these medications at little or no cost at.
