Research Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veterans' Illnesses Finds Path Towards Possible Treatments for Gulf War Illness

Written by Anthony Hardie, 91outcomes

( - Today, the federal government for the first time ever held a day-long session hearing scientific and medical presentation on treatments for Gulf War Illness, with extraordinary results.

The federal, Congressionally chartered Research Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veterans' Illnesses is meeting at the Boston University School of Public Health today and tomorrow to review scientific and medical information on this timely, pressing topic.

However, since no members of the media were interested enough in this issue, the only place you'll find news about the day's proceedings is 91 outcomes (, which today has eight new articles summarizing each of the day's presentations in plain, easy to understand language.

Please feel free to review, share, post, redistribute, link, republish, or otherwise spread this critically important news -- the goal of 91outcomes is simply to get accurate, timely, important information on Gulf War veterans' health out to the Gulf War veterans, their advocates, and their loved ones. If you do republish it, please just provide a link back to 91outcomes so interested parties can continue to get news on Gulf War veterans' health. If you want to link or otherwise provide direct access to 91outcomes from your organization or other website, this email constitutes specific and welcomed permission to do so -- Gulf War veterans aren't getting any news from VA about the issues that matter to them about their ongoing, disabling illness, so it's available here.

As you may know, 91 outcomes is neither a for-profit nor a non-profit enterprise -- it's simply a labor of love in order to fill a gaping void in news and information available to the 175,000 to 210,000, or about one-fourth of Gulf War veterans who have been ill and remain ill following our 1991 Gulf War service.
