Panel finds widespread Gulf War illness

Rome [GA] News-Tribune

At least one in four U.S. veterans of the 1991 Gulf War suffers from a multi-symptom illness caused by exposure to toxic chemicals during the conflict, a congressionally mandated report being released Monday found. For much of the past 17 years, government officials have maintained that these veterans — more than 175,000 out of about 697,000 deployed — are merely suffering the effects of wartime stress, even as more have come forward recently with severe ailments. ‘The extensive body of scientific research now available consistently indicates that “Gulf War illness” is real, that it is the result of neurotoxic exposures during Gulf War deployment, and that few veterans have recovered or substantially improved with time,’ said the report, being released Monday by a panel of scientists and veterans...

Lots of info being shared on this landmark Gulf War Illness report today. Thanks to all the members of various lists for taking the time to send it forth. Above is a link to the full report---450 pages--wish I had the ink and paper to copy it. This could be a huge resource for those of us doing activism work for the chemically injured. And for those of us who have worked with the Gulf War vets, this just feels so right. I have received so many emails today saying this is what validation feels like! So many have already died, but hopefully this will be of help to many so that the suffering and too-soon deaths can stop. We can only hope that the next steps taken are morally and ethically correct--and that is to stop the poisoning and loss of health and life for the civilian and military populations. We are the tip of the iceberg in the vast degradation of our Earth and her inhabitants by environmental toxicants.

Panel: Gulf War Illness Confirmed

Thomas D. Williams, Truthout: "A federal health panel released conclusions Monday that evidence strongly and consistently indicates hundreds of thousands of US troops in the first Gulf War contracted long-term illnesses from use of pills, given by their own military to protect them from effects of chemical weaponized nerve agents, and from their military's pesticide use during deployment."
