New Toxic Exposure Research Initiative to be Launched by the VA

In 2021, a large-scale and extensive research initiative that will focus on environmental exposures in the military and their relation to illnesses affecting veterans will be launched by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

According to an article published by MilitaryTimes, “VA researchers have been speaking with veterans about the environmental toxins they think encountered on the battlefield and aboard military bases.” The article continued by saying that the VA is currently in the planning stages of a sizable investment in toxic exposures that will cut across and improve all the current research related to service-connected illnesses.
