2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) has been detected at levels ranging from 20 to 173 parts per trillion in adipose tissue from three Vietnam veterans who were 'heavily exposed' to Herbicide Orange. Some tissue samples from other Vietnam veterans and from controls also contained 2,3,7,8-TCDD at levels below 20 parts per trillion. (Copyright (c) 1984 by Academic Press, Inc.
