I believe that stress is a factor in any bad health.
I don't think there is one cause of Gulf War illness.
First off, I'm not a scientist, and I make no apology for that.
We knew shortly after the war that our troops were becoming ill.
Oh it's clearly a cover up. I mean, I have no reluctance in saying that.
But I would argue that a longer war it's more difficult to keep records than a shorter war.
But Gulf War Syndrome is not one cause, not one illness. It is many causes, many illnesses.
The bottom line to this is, there are few doctors who have any expertise in chemical exposure.
The bottom line is that the CIA knew before the war, during and war, and after the war where most of these chemicals were and most of these biological agents.
I think that some of our soldiers die in the battlefield and some come home to bad health and die prematurely, just by the nature of the kind of business they're in.
