A research conducted by the King's Collage London, analysed health reports of the armed forces personal who took part in the Gulf war in 2003 with those who took part in the 1991 war, to see if there was a new 'Iraq war Syndrome'.
The study findings that are published in The Lancet report that they have found no evidence for a new "Iraq War Syndrome" in British male armed forces personnel deployed to the 2003 conflict, as compared with those who took part in the 1991 conflict, who had experienced an increase in symptoms of ill health that was commonly termed as the Iraq war syndrome.
In the research programme, more than 8,000 armed force personal were asked to complete a health questionnaire. The researchers found that there were a very few increased amount of common symptoms after the 03' Iraq war, which was nothing in compare to what was experienced after the 91' Gulf war. The complaint of fatigue that was greatly increased in the earlier war was noticed to be almost negligible by the current troops.
