This study discerns if Canadian Gulf & Kuwait War veterans had a higher risk of death or cancer compared to other Canadian veterans, & to members of the public. The study consisted of 5,117 Gulf & Kuwait War veterans deployed to the Persian Gulf area from August 1990-October 1991, & another 6,093 veterans who were eligible, but were not deployed to the Persian Gulf. No major difference in the overall risk of death between the deployed & non-deployed cohorts was found, & there was a lower risk of death from all causes compared to the general population for the deployed & non-deployed cohorts.
