Agent Orange

Agent Orange is the common name applied to a class of herbicides or defoliants used to curb the growth of jungle foliage and vegetation. First used by the British in Malaya during the 1950s, Agent Orange was employed by the U.S. during the Vietnam War and linked to a number of health related conditions among the native population and military personnel who were exposed to the chemical substance. The name Agent Orange was derived from the orange stripes on the barrels in which the defoliant was shipped.
