agent orange exposure in Vietnam, now having shortness of breath...

My father was exposed to agent orange while serving in Vietnam in 1970's. The only lasting effects he's had thus far is redness in skin pigmentation on the side of his neck. Over the last 6 months, he's been having shortness of breath when overexerting himself at work (he drives tractor trailer and peforms fairly physical duties along with it). He is 62 and in decent shape however his diet could be better. For anyone familiar with agent orange, could his current shortness of breath have any relation? What other symptoms have you seen? He seemingly has no other symptoms at this time. He also has had multiple chemical and absestos exposures at work. He does have a dr. appt coming up, just trying to pinpoint some things to look into. Thanks!

What have you found out about your dad? Did the doctor find anything?
My brother has AO health problems. Ischemic heart disease, T2 diabetes, neuropathy in arms and legs. Don't mean to bring you such promising info but I like knowing instead of wondering. Hope your dad comes out better. Let us know.

Hi I read some things about foods for the lungs such as onions and dates is there interest in a bigger list? I know I would want to use such things if I felt there might be a need.
