Gulf War syndrome does not exist, according to a report cited in the UK Telegraph.

It's pretty easy to tell it's bogus, especially when the anti-DU crowd had to get all it's pictures of "deformed Iraqi babies" from a 1977 medical student textbook.

(Warning: don't click on first link if you don't want to see deformed babies being used as propaganda.)

Tatterdemalian---you got a cite for the assertion that those photos come from a textbook? Not that I believe the deformities come from DU, but it would be good to have proof that people were falsifying their "proof".

Tim---nice site. It's good to be able to access your blog regularly again.

Here's an AP story mercilessly flogging the DU issue.

And by the way, doesn't Tatterdemalian's second link count as a cite?
