Exposure to the herbicide Agent Orange during the Vietnam War is associated with an increased risk of high-grade prostate cancer among U.S. veterans, a study found. Men who were exposed to the chemical had a 52% higher risk of having any form of the cancer and a 75% greater likelihood of an aggressive form of the illness compared with those who were not exposed, researchers reported in the journal Cancer.
