How Agent Orange Led to Ischemic Heart Disease In Veterans
agent orange ischemic heart diseaseAgent Orange was a chemical defoliant that was used during the Vietnam War, with the goal of defoliating forested area so the guerrillas would have less cover and a reduced food supply.

Later, it was discovered that the Agent Orange used was contaminated with a dioxin compound called TCDD.

The US sprayed nearly 20 million gallons of this and other similar chemicals, destroying over five million acres of land between 1962 and 1971.

Not only were forests and food crops destroyed, but hundreds of thousands of people were killed or injured as a direct result of these chemicals, including as many as a half million babies born with severe birth defects.
