New conditions added to Agent Orange presumptive list

VA announced on October 13, 2009, that it will add three more illnesses to the “presumptive list” of Agent Orange related diseases: Parkinson’s disease, B cell leukemias, such as hairy cell leukemia, and ischemic heart disease.

In practical effect, this means that a service person who served in Vietnam during the war and has one of these diseases will find it far easier to establish service connection for these diseases.
