Brain Changes Could Contribute to Gulf War Illness: Study
Date:3/21/2013

e more researchers understand the brain damage that is underlying Gulf War illness, the further along they will be in developing treatments, Haley said.

Although it is fairly well agreed upon that Gulf War illness is caused by exposure to chemicals, and the likely culprits are chemicals in nerve gas and the pesticides used to protect troops from mosquitoes and other insects, treatments have been elusive, Haley said.

More information

You can get more information on Gulf War illness from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
