"Gulf War Syndrome Real, Institute of Medicine Concludes"

"Hundreds of thousands of U.S. veterans who claim to suffer from Gulf War Syndrome just received powerful new ammunition against arguments that their symptoms are trivial, if not altogether fictional. On April 9, the Institute of Medicine -- the health arm of the National Academy of Sciences -- issued a report that concludes military service in the Persian Gulf War has not only been a cause of post-traumatic stress disorder in some veterans but also is 'associated with multisymptom illness.'

That multisymptom illness is IOM’s moniker for what the vets refer to as Gulf War Syndrome."

Janet Raloff reports for Science News April 10, 2010.
