Is there any certain causative agent that makes one have diarrhea and throwing up at the same time? Or is it just some stomach bug/virus?
Gastroenteritis: There are many causes for this, some due to virus, some to ingested toxic material, some to bacteria, etc. The nature of the offending agent will help to determine whether you get both vomiting and diarrhea or only one of them.

Call your doctor please & get checked.Fast relief from OTC agent does not mean cure. ...Read more

Liquids can sneak past the seal muscles need to make to prevent passages of liquids into the air tube (trachea) instead of the food tube (esophagus).

No: World War II was from 1 September 1939 until 2 September 1945. My understanding is that Agent Orange was first used in 1946.
