Betty Mekdeci, Director of Birth Defect Research for Children interviewed by the NBC TV affiliate about birth defects in children of Vietnam veterans.
Orlando, Fla. (WFLA) – Rates of cancer, learning disabilities and physical birth defects in the children of Vietnam veterans are staggering when compared to those in children of non-veterans.
Birth Defect Research for Children’s latest research shows mounting evidence that these children, now in their 30S, 40s and 50s exhibit health problems across the board.
“It’s so compelling to look at the data, I mean every time I look at it, I go wow!” said Betty Mekdeci, Executive Director of Birth Defect Research for Children.
