This article appears to be just plain wrong. Dioxin is not a herbicide, so I really doubt that Agent Pink was "100% dioxin".

Yes there are numerous things wrong with this page. Just to dispute one of them: Most people believe instantly that just because they have heard of something less (than others of similar relation), they think it is more potent or more substantial than the more common types. But this doesnt seem to be the case here. Just using other information on Wikipedia, one can find that 2,4-D was mixed with 2,4,5-T in a 50 to 50 ratio in the making of agent orange. While TCDD is found more in 2,4,5-T (the only part of Agent Pink) and is thought, but not actually known to be more poisonous to humans, the DCDD found in 2,4-D (Used in 50 to 50 ratio in Agent Orange) is EQIPOTENT (though that statement is often overlooked)... it has the same potency of TCDD making it just as dangerous.

Therefore, just because 2,4,5-T is the sole component in Agent Pink does not mean that Agent Pink is many times greater than Agent Orange. One could even conclude (though this may be a generalization) that Agent Pink was just as dangerous (in terms of dioxin toxicity levels) as Agent Orange and not of any greater danger to humans.
