Hansard reports Lymphoma Increases in UK Gulf Veterans

In answer to a Parliamentary Question [1] the Ministry of Defence recently was forced to concede that the latest information on the health of a selected group of Gulf War veterans showed that they had significantly higher levels of lymphoma compared with a control group assembled from army soldiers who had not served in the Persian Gulf. This development links the British veterans’ lymphoma to the increases in lymphoma found in the Italian soldiers and peacekeepers who served in the Balkans. The increases in specific illnesses are not tabulated in the Parliamentary answer and LLRC has asked the Gulf Veterans’ Illness Unit for a breakdown.
