It’s Memorial Day. A time to remember those who have fallen in the defense of our great nation. On a day when we honor those who died in war, I also wanted to bring hope to some of those veterans who are still alive but suffer from a war-time enemy few know about. And, at the same time, show you how to protect yourself from similar threats.
You may have heard about Gulf War Syndrome. It’s the name of a condition affecting hundreds of thousands of veterans who have served in the Middle East wars. It can cause of wide array of symptoms. These include acute and chronic symptoms, such as fatigue, headaches, balance and memory problems, muscle and joint pain, and skin problems. The syndrome made national headlines when severe birth defects began to occur in the children of Gulf War vets.
Since the discovery of Gulf War Syndrome, many have speculated as to its cause. Some say Saddam Hussein used biological agents on our troops. Others say the vaccines our military gave the soldiers caused the problem. But now, new evidence suggests it was actually an environmental toxin that can affect anyone exposed to it.
According to a Navy researcher, the cause of Gulf War Syndrome is microscopic desert dust particles. But these aren’t your ordinary dust particles. These particles contain heavy concentrations of heavy metals, including aluminum, lead, manganese, and tin.

As you may know, these metals can cause neurological disorders, cancer, respiratory ailments, and heart disease. Since the start of the war in Afghanistan in 2001, neurological disorders in the military have increased by 251%. Respiratory issues have increased by 47%. And cardiovascular disease is up by 34%.
The researcher is Capt. Mark Lyles. He chairs the medical sciences and biotechnology division at the Center for Naval Warfare Studies at the Naval War College in Newport, R.I. Of the discovery, he said, “From my research and that of others, I really think this may be the smoking gun. It fits everything – symptoms, timing, everything.”
But the contaminated dust contains a lot more than heavy metals. It also contains 147 different kinds of bacteria. And Capt. Lyles even found fungi in the dust.
What Capt. Lyles has discovered is crucial information for you. Whether you’re a veteran or not, if you suffer from any neurological, respiratory, or cardiovascular disorder, it’s important you consider environmental factors may have caused it.
Unfortunately, the Navy hasn’t yet discovered a way to reverse the damage the dust has caused. But you don’t have to wait for the Navy to treat your illness. If your ailment has any environmental causes, you need to take steps now to detoxify your body. Chelation therapy is a great way to get rid of heavy metals. But it’s expensive and inconvenient.
Instead, I suggest you use an oral chelation treatment, such as PectaSol Chelation Complex or Advanced Detox Formula. Extensive laboratory and clinical research has proven both of these formulas will pull heavy metals out of your body. If heavy metals are causing your ailment, these products could completely reverse your condition.
I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day holiday. And if you know any vets suffering from these conditions, please forward this email to them. It could make a huge impact on their life.
