Nam Vets who ate fish there are dying of liver cancer

A friend of mine sent me a clip of this story. You've know about Agent Orange, you've heard of the plight of blue water veterans  and if that wasn't enough, 30 years or more later the VA is admitting the cause and effect of eating fish from the rivers in Vietnam. I understand those who were there would run out of rations and be forced to rely on the local food sources. Unfortunately, those who cooked fish in their helmets didn't cook it through and somehow a parasite lives and dose not die inside a human. It's worth noting that the VA has agreed to extend benefits to those who and now diagnosed with cancer from eating "fish on a stick" It's worth a blood test for those who were there and ate the fish.
