Fatigue, dizziness, rashes, memory loss, and other symptoms of Gulf War syndrome are likely tied to a combination of chemicals that veterans were exposed to during the war, says new research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The review of studies on Gulf War syndrome supports the theory that pesticides used around military bases, anti-nerve-gas pills given to soldiers, and the nerve gas sarin share a common group of chemicals that account for sufferers’ symptoms. U.S. officials have claimed that the syndrome, which affects up to one-third of Gulf War veterans, is due mainly to psychological stress.
