There is public database now acknowledging that agent orange has had effects on those exposed and their offspring. Believe there is a registry where you can share medical conditions, as more is learned about the impact..

I was wondering the same thing because my dad was in WWII, had malaria before I was conceived and I am the youngest of 4, none of my siblings have any health issues but I have tons, mostly auto immune and I was curious if that was related somehow.

My father was in Vietnam, dropped into swamps/fields and heavily exposed to Agent Orange the year before I was born and afterward. He currently is seeing 11 doctors. Losing his ability to walk (neurological), significant loss of gray matter in the brain, etc.
