Gulf War Illness


Gulf War Syndrome is the name given by the media to dramatise the Gulf War related illness that service personnel were suffering.

The possible causes of Gulf War Illness consist of exposures to chemical and biological warfare agents. The toxic combination of anti-nerve agent pills and OP's and insecticides, large amount of inoculations, smoke, oil well fires and other environmental toxins, depleted uranium and endemic infections diseases all played their part.

The symptoms consist of differing combinations of extreme fatigue, joint pain, spinal damage, cancers, heart conditions, muscle aches and spasms, gastrointestinal disorders, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, head aches, fevers, neurological problems, gynecological problems, birth defects and memory and concentration problems. Recent studies in America point to brain damage and gene manipulation due to the onslaught of toxins to the body's immune system
