    Munitions exposure linked to brain cancer in US vets

    Acording to this article, from Reuters, gulf war veterans who have been exposed to chemical munitions are, apparently twice as likely to die from brain cancer as those who have not been exposed:

    "We found an approximately twofold excess of brain cancer deaths, 12 to 13 excess deaths in a population of 100,000 veterans, associated with possible exposure to chemical warfare agents," Tim A. Bullman, from the Department of Veteran Affairs in Washington, DC, and colleagues report. In the new study, rates of death from specific causes for 100,487 exposed US army veterans were compared with those for 224,980 unexposed veterans.
