Hypothyroidism, bladder cancer, and multiple myeloma linked to Agent Orange herbicide exposure: Study

March 25, 2016

The authors wrote, “[The inclusion of] spina bifida in the limited or suggestive category of association was based on preliminary findings from [an ongoing Air Force study]. However, to date, a complete analysis of the data from that study for neural tube defects has not been published … [and] no subsequent studies have found increases in spina bifida with exposure to components of the herbicides sprayed in Vietnam.”

Bladder cancer and hypothyroidism were upgraded, as more evidence had come to light to reveal a stronger link, and Parkinson-like symptoms were also added.

    Does anyone know if shingles is a symptom? I get shingles on the outer part of my right leg every other month. My last outbreak was only 23 days in between. My doctors can not explain why the come back so often.
