Three years ago I was in a school room that was sprayed with cypermethrin. I had an immediate reaction to the spray and have been suffering many of the same symptoms as gulf war syndrome..Fatigue, loss of some feeling to hands, loss of bladder control, severe aches and pains in muscles and joints (which aare becoming more severe with time). This pesticide was sprayed during the gulf war, but because it was thought to be a natural substance and safe, it is the one pesticde that no spraying records were kept and therefore it was not tested. It appears, to affect those who have a sensitivity to it and because it is a billion dollar industry as a home and agriculture spray, I am running into brick walls trying to prove anything. I know this is true that this pesticide's possible affect on gulf war vets was not studied becasue they don't know who was sprayed and who wasn't. I was given this information by one of the researchers who did the pesticde study. Germany and England have both done several studies that show this is not as safe as people think and that it actually can cause "sick houses" because it absorbs into wood and carpet. It has been shown to cause neurological damage which appeaars to be what has caused my symptoms. I strongly recommend you push for more testing to be done on this substance..Very few tests were done on this prior to its release and none relating to inhalation...most tests were for ingestion...
