In brief: Gulf War Syndrome.

I am not aware of hypothesies that associate this to mold.
Please see: Toxic Exposures Caused Illness in Gulf War Veterans. Roberta White & team indicate that exposure to pesticides & ingestion of pyridostigmine bromide prophylactic pills are causally associated wi GWI. Many studies show a link btwn neurological problems & exposure to nerve-gas agents (sarin & cyclosarin) & to oil well fire
