Well, here it goes.
Does anyone know anything about a possible link between Agent Orange (AO) and AS?
I was in Viet Nam in 1970-71, they used AO from 1961-72.
It has been shown, although begrudgingly by many, that AO exposure has led to a lot of diseases, from cancer to other problems.
I was wondering if anyone knew if there was any research into this potential link. I started having problems with my neck in the US Navy, a little pain now and then, and I think there was signs of AS when I was medically discharged for a problem the caused the loss of much of the use of my right elbow, in 1988.
I'd be glad to hear if there has been some research into a potential link between AO and AS.
