I think that one issue is that there will be gulf war syndromes. One syndrome seems to be minor* brain damage from low level exposure to nerve gas (biologically nerve gases are very similar to pesticides, just with specificity for humans vs insects). Interestingly peripheral nerve damage seems not to be an issue.

PTSD will be a different syndrome. Of course one person might have both.


*Accepting that this is not minor to the person concerned, but just in the physical extent of damage as compared with e.g. a bullet.
