might ask yourself what this virtual "who's who" of diseases, such as
AL Amyloidosis, Chronic B-cell Leukemia, Chloracne, Diabetes Mellitus
Type 2, Hodgkin's Disease, Ischemic Heart Disease, Multiple Myeloma,
Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, Parkinson's Disease, Peripheral Neuropathy,
Porphyria Cutanea Tarda, Prostate Cancer, Respiratory Cancers and Soft
Tissue Sarcomas, have in common.
The answer is simple; they are
the many illnesses the U.S. government has admitted are associated with
the exposure to Agent Orange. Hopefully with time, our government will
admit there are other diseases caused by their spraying of herbicides
and defoliants than they originally admitted to.
Some may ask
what Agent Orange is and, believe it or not, more and younger people
have never heard of that term even though it has caused illnesses and
deaths of thousands of people.
I was at a doctor's office not
too long ago and a medical assistant asked me what Agent Orange was when
I mentioned that it had caused most of my medical conditions.
term Agent Orange is derived from the combination of code names for
Herbicide Orange (HO) and Agent LNX. Agent Orange was one of the
herbicides and defoliants used by the U.S. military as part of its
chemical warfare program, Operation Ranch Hand, during the Vietnam
Conflict from 1961 through 1971. And besides that, the 55-gallon drums
the deadly toxins were shipped in had a big orange stripe around it.
the Vietnam War, the United States military sprayed millions of gallons
of deadly material containing chemical herbicides and defoliants in
Vietnam, eastern Laos and parts of Cambodia, as part of Operation Ranch
Hand. According to online encyclopedia Wikipedia, the program's goal
was, "...to defoliate forested and rural land, depriving guerrillas of
cover and to induce forced draft urbanization, destroying the ability of
peasants to support themselves in the countryside, and forcing them to
flee to the U.S. dominated cities, thus depriving the guerrillas of
their rural support and food supply..."
Many are unaware the U.S. government also sprayed Agent Orange in Korea.
