Talk:Gulf War syndrome

From RationalWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search


I started this. It's clearly a very large topic. Changes/additions I'd like but don't have time for:

  • A balancing quote at the start maybe indicating the suffering GWS/GWI causes, or something more recent.
  • More discussion on how it affects veterans and their families, regardless of the cause.
  • More on possible psychological causes, and how they could interreact with physical symptoms.
  • References to scientific studies on each of the suggested causes, if only to disprove them.
  • More content on organophosphates, not necessarily here, but somewhere on-wiki.
  • Any woo, e.g. pseudoscientific explanations and cures.
  • There's a reference in one of the KCL studies to suicide rates being higher.
  • Also, consistent usage of GWS/GWI might be nice.

A wider range of scientific voices would also be good. Annquin (talk) 11:16, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
