This up-to-date electronic book on CD-ROM provides a fantastic collection of official Federal government documents and publications about Agent Orange and its health effects on Vietnam veterans, including material from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Department of Defense. Every aspect of the issue is fully covered. Approximately 20 million gallons of herbicides were used in Vietnam between 1962 and 1971 to remove unwanted plant life and leaves which otherwise provided cover for enemy forces during the Vietnam Conflict. Shortly following their military service in Vietnam, some veterans reported a variety of health problems and concerns which some of them attributed to exposure to Agent Orange or other herbicides. The Department of Veterans Affairs has developed a comprehensive program to respond to these medical problems and concerns. The principal elements of this program include quality healthcare services, disability compensation for veterans with service-connected illnesses, scientific research and outreach and education. Some contents include: Association with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, Extension of Benefits, Agent Orange General Information and Agent Orange Information Bulletin, Veterans Benefits for those exposed to Agent Orange, Agent Orange Handbook, Veterans Health Initiative (VHI) Agent Orange, DoD Report on Herbicides Used Outside of Vietnam, Agent Orange Registry, Disability Compensation and Benefits, Health Conditions Recognized for Service Connection Disability Related to Agent Orange, Where to Get Help, Complete Series of Fact Sheets including Research Updates, Legal Decisions, Recognition of Conditions, Health Care Eligibility, Birth Defects, Chloracne, Lymphoma, Sarcomas, Neuropathy, Hodgkins Disease, Porphyria Cutanea tarda, myelomas, respiratory cancers, spina bifida, diabetes, and much more.
