SHR # 1061 :: WSU Study Finds Dioxin Causes Disease And Reproductive Problems Across Generations

Guest: Dr. Michael K. Skinner

Dr. Skinner may be thought of as the "Father Of Transgenerational Epigenetics". His lab at Washington State University has looked at three generations of offspring of rats exposed to modest amounts of Dioxin and the results are not good. While Dioxin appears to occur in our environment from a variety of chemical agents, the greatest offender was an herbicide called Agent Orange used during the Vietnam War. This research is important not only to those whose fathers and grandfathers were exposed to it in the 60's and 70's but because Monsanto, one of the original producer of Agent Orange, is lobbying the FDA to allow them to reintroduce a diluted form back into agriculture to be sprayed on corn and soy beans here in the USA. Listen and learn.

Quoting Sharon Perry:
I don't understand why you have written that this study is so important for the fathers and grandfathers who were exposed to AO in Vietnam. I wrote Dr. Skinner and asked him about this very issue. Dr. Skinner wrote the following about the study: "A male exposure will effect his health but not clear if can be passed to later generations." Although this research is promising for the families of male Vietnam veterans. It doesn't prove why the children of male Vietnam veterans are sick or why they are born with multiple birth defects. It seems to me that the male rats would need to be exposed to dioxin for this to be helpful to our families. Dr. Skinner hopes that future human studies will be possible. We hope so too since our children/grandchildren and great grandchildren are born with multiple birth defects, sick, suffering and dying.

Sharon I will address your statement on today's Casual Friday (10/5/2012)
