After nearly 30 years of trying to prove a theory it has been done. That Dr. Robert Haley has proven that a toxin has proven that Sarin gas was the cause of the sickness of roughly 250,000 troops from the 1990-91 Gulf War. Following the Gulf War nearly one –third of those that deployed came down with unexplained rashes, fatigue, gastrointestinal and digestive issues and brain “fog’, neuropathy, and muscle and joint pain.  Federal agencies spent years trying to prove or disprove why they had these disorders.
