Agent Orange, a defoliant designed to strip away the jungle cover and expose vietnamese soldiers and their supply lines was used extensively by the US military during the Vietnam war. It has also been linked with respiratory cancer and birth defects and several parts of Vietnam including Danang airbase where it was stored and loaded onto planes are still hotspots of the dangerous dioxin found in the chemical.
The US has now begun a $41 million project with the Vietnamese government to clean up the site around Danang airbase.
