Specifically, in Dr. Garth Nicolson’s presentation on loss of mitochondrial function, he gave a fascinating statistic about the families of veterans from the Gulf War.  Much has been written about the Gulf War Syndrome, but a  little known fact is that within 6 months to a year of returning home from the Middle East, the families of the sick veterans also became sick with identical symptoms – including children. In fact 77% of spouses and 65% of the children of sick veterans ALSO become sick.
