Agent Orange?

11 years 4 months ago #27618 by stevegrimes14

I was at Phu Bai, 1968, 1969. I have BC. When I checked there was no direct link to BC and agent orange. I do believe that there are some efforts being made to make the correlation.

I made the post about 3 months ago while addressing LMfoster's exposure in the Marine corp. Link should still be there.

My father-in-law received payments for his prostate cancer as part of the agent orange medical benefits.

Someone checked previously and bladder cancer has not been included in the program. While I wasn't there, I did do some checking (Google search "agent orange bladder cancer") and found where they say there is not an established causal relationship.

I promised a couple of my friends that I would throw out this question and see what the results were. Are there any of the group with BC that are also Viet Nam Vets and had some type of exposure or contact with the vegetative defloration (Agent Orange) chemicals. One of my friends filed a claim with the Veterans Administration for disability because of his resulting respiratory problems and is receiving disability payments. He thinks that I would also be eligible due to my BC. So the question is, is there any study or research results on Agent Orange and BC? Again, thanks for your support.
