Last Week’s Hot Topic on ALS


Last week’s hot topic on ALS was ALS, Gulf War Illness Caused by Toxic Exposures, Report Says written by Magdalena Kegel

The article refers to a report which shows that Gulf War Illness is a result of exposure to pesticides and other toxins used in the Gulf War. The report also notes that in addition to Gulf War Illness, deployed Gulf War veterans suffer higher rates of stroke, brain cancer and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) compared to non-deployed veterans – a finding that was supported by a 2009 study from the Department of Veteran Affairs.

Thanks to the work of Boston University School of Public Health, we can now understand better some of the effects of Gulf War’s toxic exposures.
