Australian Vietnam Veterans Study: 

See Our Pages This 1997 study of 50,000 Australian Vietnam veterans entitled “Mortality of Vietnam Veterans: The Veteran Cohort Study” found that the death rate among veterans between 1980 and 1994 was some seven percent higher than for the overall male population. In addition, the study found that the death rate from cancer was about 20 percent above average, and that veterans may face an increased risk of death by suicide. The Australian government received this information seriously since it has been documented that those individuals who were in Viet Nam had successfully passed rigid medical examinations and were therefore considered “healthy”; those with congenital medical issues were rejected as conscripts.
