Can't tell if you are joking. I knew a guy who was a medic during the Vietnam 'war', who was exposed to the stuff. This otherwise, tall strong active and healthy fellow came home, within two years developed fatal lymphoma and died in his mid 20's. An only child, his parents pursued the truth about the cause of his death. Took over 20 years, but the government finally admitted the link to his cancer and exposure to Agent Orange. His father passed away before the decision, but his Mom lived to see the admission. The local paper put the story on the front page. She wanted nothing else but just an admission from the military that her son's cancer resulted from side affects of the exposure to Agent Orange.

Maybe this was just your idea of an April Fool's day joke. Silly me...
