FILE - This combination of file photos provided by their families shows some of the hundreds of U.S. veterans of the Vietnam War who suffered from cholangiocarcinoma, a rare bile duct cancer believed to be linked to liver fluke parasites in raw or poorly cooked river fish. This cancer takes decades to manifest itself. Top row from left are Andrew G. Breczewski, Arthur R. Duhon Sr., Clarence E. Sauer, Dennis Anthony Reinhold, Donald Edward Fiechter, George Jardine, Horst Alexander Koslowsky, Hugo Rocha and James Robert Zimmerman. Second row from left are James Vincent Kondreck, John J. Skahill Jr., Johnny Herald, Leonard H. Chubb, Louis A. DiPietro, Mario Petitti, Mark M. Lipman, Marvin H. Edwards and Michael Kimmons. Third row from left are Mike Brown, Paul Smith, Pete Harrison, Peter D. Antoine, Ralph E. Black, Ricardo Ortiz Jr., Richard Anthony Munoz, Robert J. Fossett Jr. and Robert L. Boring.

 Slow-killing parasite from Vietnam may be killing veterans, VA study says

HERALD, W.Va. -- A half a century after serving in Vietnam, hundreds of veterans have a new reason to believe they may be dying from a silent bullet -- test results show some men may have been infected by a slow-killing parasite while fighting in the jungles of Southeast Asia.

Has nothing to do with wading through agent orange saturated jungles.   Dupont or whoever is going to be very happy with this finding.   Big money says they found this parasite and are delighted to inform veterans that this is their problem.   Bullshit meter is pegged.

Not buying. They had knowledge of this bug fifty years ago, and could have said something. Now, is a little late. I'd be digging to find out who doesn't want to pay off the Agent Orange claims. Always follow the money.
