Agent Orange Birth Defects

Vietnamese babies after agent orange exposure. Agent Orange is the combination of the code names for Herbicide Orange (HO) and Agent LNX, one of the herbicides and defoliants used by the U.S. military as part of its herbicidal warfare program, Operation Ranch Hand, during the Vietnam War from 1961 to 1971. Vietnam estimates 400,000 people were killed or maimed, and 500,000 children born with birth defects as a result of its use. The Red Cross of Viet Nam estimates that up to 1 million people are disabled or have health problems due to Agent Orange.
