Abstract:

This literature review, one of eight commissioned by the Special Assistant to the Deputy Secretary of Defense for Gulf War Illnesses, summarizes the existing scientific literature on the health effects of depleted uranium that may have affected service members who served in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm and recommends additional areas of research where appropriate. The eight RAND reviews are intended to complement efforts by the Defense Department and other federal agencies as they attempt to understand the full range of health implications of service in that conflict.
