"This book truthfully is the only book I have ever begun to read and couldn't put down until I was finished. The quality of writing and subject matter - it's a Masterpiece!" - David Lewis, Ph.D., former senior EPA Research Microbiologist.
"Arnold Mann's reporting on environmental toxins and resulting illnesses has enabled patients and doctors to look beyond the obvious for answers to mysterious symptoms. His earlier reporting saved lives; this book will save countless more." - Melinda Ballard, Policyholders of America.
"This is a compelling book - a real page-turner. It covers the lack of research, the lack of government support, physician ignorance and/or duplicity, and industry's indifference and outright lies to the victims of toxic exposures" - Cynthia Wilson, Executive Director, Chemical Injury Information Network.

A new book, THEY'RE POSIONING US! From The Gulf War To The Gulf Of Mexico- An investigative Report, is now available, from acclaimed author Arnold Mann, an investigative reporter with years of experience reporting for Time and USA Weekend. Arnold Mann also worked for years as a consultant to the National Institute of Health in the National Cancer Institute. He truly is presenting the Investigative report that has been sorely needed for decades.
The aim to tie the story of environmental hazards to all that have been concerned from the patient sufferers be it civilian or military, to the lead Senator that exposed the Plight of the Gulf War Veterans in 1994(Senator Reigle), to the doctors that cared to try to answer the needs despite government interference, to the researchers that are finally now being funded thanks to the Gulf War Veterans efforts, and to the government agencies that were to have our backs but that have interfered and delayed help to those that need it the most. This not a story about whiners, this is the investigative report that covers the science and the research that has taken over 20 years to finally have an awakening that millions are truly sufferring.
His book is one you can not put down once you pick it up. It is factual in the presentations of the numerous groups of people and the individuals that are example case descriptions that have suffered for too long and told they were malingers, mentally ill, or deceptive. His interviews with Senator Reigle, the doctors that took brave stands against false perceptions, and the researchers that are covering the science and the way forward is comprehensive and exposes the truths that have been hidden too long. He covers the deceptive practices of the industry and government agencies that have made this a black mark on the history of our country.
He puts the Gulf War Veterans/ Desert Storm Veterans back on the frontlines of the war after the war. His investigative scientific investigation is Right On The Mark. His book 9 chapters includes breaking news on research on diagnosis and treatment. His book speaks to the deployed and the nondeployed gulf war veterans, to the chemically and mold injuried civilians, to the ones sick from the Gulf of Mexico Clean up, and to the infants that died in Cleveland Ohio. He speaks to the millions that are currently ill and dying and to the millions of the world who are at risk.
Veterans highlighted in the book include Colonel Herb Smith, Commander Julia Dyckman, Major Denise Nichols, Lt Colonel Steven Avery, Beckie Cann, Margaret Eklund, Major Doug Rokke, Paul Sullivan, Lt Colonel Harold Lindsey Arison, and Jim Bunker. Volumes of books could be written if each of the veterans were interviewed that have come forth publicly in the past 20 years and one of the consultants was advocating for more to be interviewed. But their interviews serve as case examples in the mass of the hundreds of thousands of our troops that went to serve this country in 1990-91 and came home ill. Each of them carry the load as spokespersons and remember their fellow veterans. They all know thousands that are ill and know all too well many that have already died early deaths.
Jim Binns the chairman of the VA RAC GWI is interviewed as are doctors and researchers to include Dr. Claudia Miller, Dr Mohamed Abou-Donia, Dr Robert Hailey, Dr Ronald Bach, Dr Meggs, Dr Grace Ziem, Dr Rikki Ott, again just a sampling of the Doctors and PHD- Researchers interviewed and quoted in this book. These are the doctors on the battlefield that risk their careers to do the morally and ethically correct actions that should have been common place over the last 20 years. Their actions now are focused to save the lives or at least improve the quality of the lives of our veterans and the civilians that now share different but similar fronts in this environmental war.
This is the INVESTIGATIVE SCIENTIFIC BOOK that you can not put down even after you finish reading it. This is the book that covers the Environmental Hazards of the end of one century and into the next century. It is the modern day companion to Rachael Carson's Book Silent Springs.
It is way past time to change the National Perception on the Posioning that is occurring in our nation. When one fourth to one half of the gulf war veterans that served in 1990-91 are ill and dying quietly ignored by their own government,when there are also those that were not deployed in theater that are also ill and getting no help and, when our current troops are being exposed to dirty sand with heavy metal exposures and none of them getting true help from their own government, then our government is broken.
When researchers like Dr Robert Haley (UTSW Medical) and now the researchers identified in last weeks USA Today article on heavy metal contamination in the Iraq soil are being blocked then the truth that could help our own veterans in their struggles to live and answers to their own health are being denied at the highest levels of government and people need to be held accountable! When the veterans have to go repeatedly to the capitol in DC to ask for help and funding for the right research for effective treatment and beg their own government then our country has big moral and ethical issues that are being denied and not covered by main stream media.
When the request is for 25 million for research and we will be lucky to get 8 million dollars for research from the Congressional Directed Medical Research Program at the Department of Defense for Gulf War Illness Research for the largest number ever of post war illness then this government is not honoring or caring for its veterans. When the VA funds on Gulf War illness research over 20 years has been misdirected and misspent and when the one researcher that was getting answers ie Dr Robert Haley has his research that the gulf war veterans supported cut off at a critical time, then we have true evidence of malfeasance. When gulf war veterans are having to battle their claims for compensation for years to get compensated in order to just try to have a place to live and exist at a low level of standards then we have a true atrocity of mismanagement. This is an atrocity of national importance that is being ignored and hopefully Arnold Mann's book will push some buttons for real action.
