Preliminary Findings of Reproductive & Developmental Outcomes Among Women Veterans

The six domains of the Kansas case definition for GWI, were used to identify correlations between neurotoxicant exposures and health outcomes. Women veterans reporting exposure to oil well fires, PB pills, pesticide treatments and insect baits […]
