A study has been conducted on a generation of children born after NATO’s aggression on Serbia in 1999.
President of the Commission for Investigating Consequence of the NATO bombing Darko Laketic announced this on Thursday.
He told the public broadcaster RTS that this research has been conducted together with the Batut Institute of public health, because it was possible to exclude all risk factors with the young population, unlike with adults – giving the results great scientific value.
Laketic said that the study showed the presence of a toxin that made children aged five to nine more susceptible to malignant disease.
In the next phase of the research, the Commission will try to identify which toxin is in question, Laketic added.
The research was conducted on the generation of children born after NATO’s bombing of Serbia for 78 days in the spring of 1999.
