Progress on GWS
A British independent investigation called on the Ministry of Defence to recognize Gulf War Syndrome.
The report said all the scientific studies agreed Gulf veterans were twice as likely to suffer from ill health as if they had been deployed elsewhere.The BBC reported last week on a leaked American investigation pointing to Sarin as a contributor to GWS.
It accepted the illnesses suffered by the veterans were likely to be due to a combination of causes, including multiple injections of vaccines, the use of pesticides to spray tents, low level exposure to nerve gas and the inhalation of depleted uranium dust.
