Ongoing Scientific Review and Surveillance: Taking Advantage of Untapped Sources of Data Related to Veterans’ Health
Ongoing scientific review is critical to understanding the environment that impacts health. There are Veterans’ health-related data available from sources other than studies conducted by VA. Having access to and understanding these data sources is important in comprehending the complex array of adverse health effects associated with deployment.
Please provide your comments, questions, and suggestion on how we may improve the Ongoing Scientific Review and Surveillance section of the report.
Huuum, makes me wonder why even send this out for our comments. Why envlove the GW Vet if it has no meaning. We say how we feel, and what we need to happen, and if anything is changing I'm not seeing or feeling it. Why even have this forum...just do what's been being done (not much) and tell us about it. This is getting to be more of a "You didn't do this yet", than a way for us to voice our oppenions. We don't need justification for the Millions being spent over and over with no fact finding results. How much "Scientific Review" does it take before we can get some help?
My god! you are not doing this already? where has the VA been the last 20 years? Why has every thing related to GW1, been directed to the VA by Congress?
So BY the GWVI-TF even having to write this comment, you are saying the VA does not give a hoot.

Use scientific studies involving humans, AND/OR animals, like Congress mandated, and you did for the Agent Orange studies.
By limiting the reviews to only studies involving humans you miss out on lots of relevant research, Since there is little research involving humans, and chemical agent exposure. Congress directed it, you did it for Agent Orange studies, why are you discriminating against us?
