URANIUM IN IRAQ: THE POISONOUS LEGACY OF THE IRAQ WARS
URANIUM IN IRAQ: THE POISONOUS LEGACY OF THE IRAQ WARS
By Abdul-Haq Al-Ani & Joanne Baker

Foreword by Professor David MacGregor

This book has been written out of concerns surrounding the changing health patterns in Iraq since 1991 and, in particular, the increase in cancers and genetic birth defects amongst children. The subject is fraught with difficulty because of the uncertain nature of both cause and effect. The combination of war and sanctions in Iraq over several decades, has created a highly toxic environment, and resistance to disease has become severely compromised by malnutrition, polluted water systems, psychological distress, and a failing health system. This book however, works on the supposition that the military use of uranium has the potential to be a serious contributing factor to the illnesses besetting the Iraqi population.

The book outlines environmental problems and legal implications of the contamination of Iraq due to the use of depleted uranium in military weapons used during the Gulf Wars.
