The purpose of this study was to clarify the association of dioxin in breast milk and steroid hormone in serum and saliva, primiparae's growth by comparing the defoliant sprayed area and non-sprayed area in Vietnam. The subjects were mother aged between 20 and 30 years old and their primiparae aged between 4 and 16 weeks, each 50 pairs.
Almost Dioxin isomer concentrations from sprayed area were higher than non-sprayed area. Dioxin concentrations showed U-shaped relationship with some steroid hormone levels. Girl's growth showed stronger relationship with dioxin concentrations and steroid hormone levels than boy's growth.
