Causes of Gulf War Syndrome Sought

Week of June 08, 2009

Research completed and analyzed over the past year has narrowed the underlying causes of Gulf War Syndrome to three factors: chemical nerve agents, pesticides, and the use of Pyridostigmine Bromide pills. A mixture of the three items above in combination with vaccines given to Gulf War servicemembers cannot  be ruled out as a possible cause for Gulf War Syndrome. A report titled Gulf War Illness and the Health of Gulf War Veterans  was released by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs in November 2008, consolidating all research on the syndrome to date.
