Re: [IP] Agent Orange causing Type 1??

    We were told the same thing. They also said that the children of the
people exposed to agent orange tend to have a more severe case of diabetes,
and that they tend to become insulin resistant easier than other diabetics.
The sad thing is, they don't have enough research or proof yet. Though they
ARE starting to do more research. When we talked to VA about my dad, and the
guy found out that I was diabetic, he gave mom this list of questions over
the phone...1>Is she the biological daughter of your husband?...2>Are you
Positive that she is?... I thought it was quite funny, so did mom. She told
the guy that there was no possible way that I was anybody else's daughter,
that is unless space aliens had abducted her! (Which is questionable at
times!) :O)


Yesterday is in the past...
Tomorrow has yet to come...
Today is a gift, that is why we call it...THE PRESENT!
