Roundup seems responsible for some type cancersWhile my father was recuperating from a heart attack, he persuaded my mother (who normally avoided outdoor farm work) to help me apply 2,4,-D + 2,4, 5,-T mixture (aka, Agent Orange) on trees that were encroaching into fields. Many years later, she developed chronic lymphocytic leukemia---as did too many road workers and soldiers who were exposed.
There are a lot of stuff not taught in school. Sometimes you have to dig things up yourself to learn these kinds of things.
True story, my wife's nephew didn't know about the Holocaust and had to Google/wikipedia it after he graduated HS. They were at a family holiday and someone said something about it and he asked what it was.My daughter (30) was telling me about the horrible poison ivy problem she has at the house that she just bought. I was kidding around that she needs some agent orange. And she replied what's that, never heard of it.
She's working as a chemist. At what age do people not learn about agent orange? Is this something that is not taught? She dropped out of high school in 10th grade, got her GED, and studied chemistry for her BS degree.
Class of 87 here too. We weren’t taught about it in school either. First time I ever heard “agent orange” was my friend who was into a punk band called Agent Orange in the early 80s.I know people that were/ are effected by it. I was not told anything about it in school. Class of 87.
