Chicago Tribune: Funding to Study Gulf War Syndrome

According to an article in the Chicago Tribune, Rejected theory still gets funds, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson inserted an earmark in the 2007 federal budget for $15 million to University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center to study Gulf War Syndrome.  Funding can be renewed up to four times, for a total of $75 million over five years.

The article also notes that "as recently as September a panel of the National Academy of Science's Institute of Medicine reached the same conclusion that half a dozen other expert groups had: Gulf war syndrome does not exist."
