Do you think that a daughter of a Vietnam vet ( agent orange)could get Hoshimotos thyroid disease at age 40?
Hello, The causes of Hashimoto's disease is uncertain, some scientists think a virus or bacterium might trigger the response, while others believe a genetic flaw may be involved. There's no consensus. At present, Hashimoto's disease isn't in the list of diseases related to agent orange released by U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Although some believe agent orange is linked to thyroid diseases, there aren't existing studies that prove Hashimoto's disease and agent orange are relevant. All the best. HTQ
