The US Congress Committee investigating Gulf War Syndrome discovered
that none of the French troops taking part in the coalition forces
reported developing the illness. No vaccines or protective drugs
were forced on French soldiers. Only protective suits were supplied
against a possible biological attack.
Only 140 of the 25,000 French troops in the Gulf War reported
any war-related illness (0.5%), compared to over 5,000 (10%)
UK troops and 137,862 (19%) of US troops.
