Researchers find evidence of DNA damage in Vets with Gulf War illness
Researchers say they have found the “first direct biological evidence” of damage in Veterans with Gulf War illness to DNA within cellular structures that produce energy in the body.
The findings appeared in the journal PLOS One in September 2017.
A study that focused on mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) included 21 Veterans with Gulf War illness (GWI) and seven controls.
