By the end of the 1980s, mustard gas had been used in Iraq, causing 5000 deaths and tens of thousands of injuries.
Gothenburg and Martin Luther Universities interviewed people who were exposed to this condition, and found that people aged 34-67 years were diagnosed with chronic pulmonary complications. They also found that there were various physical and mental problems in the people concerned. Especially respiratory problems, insomnia, fatigue and eye complaints were identified as major problems.
