The Mississippi study cited is flawed; this one is better, and
from the same time period:

"Prevalence of Birth Defects Among Infants of Gulf War Veterans
in Arkansas, Arizona, California, Georgia, Hawaii, and Iowa,
1989–1993," by M.R.G. "Happy" Araneta, et al., in _Birth Defects
Research (Part A)_, vol. 67, pp. 246–260 (2003.)


Note that the Basrah University Hospital civilians didn't have
the same spike that the U.S. and U.K. troops did.
