Swedish soldiers wear ‘toxic’ uniforms: report

Swedish soldiers are not allowed to wear the light beige desert uniform, used in Afghanistan, while at home on leave or even on the plane. The pesticide, known as permethrin, which the uniforms are impregnated with, has been deemed too dangerous for the public. However, the Swedish Armed Forces say the uniforms are safe for the soldiers.
