BCCオンライン(3月21日)にアップされましたビデオニュースによりますと、WHOは、イラクにおける先天性障害に関するパイロット調査の結果を近く発表しますが、その内容は、先天性障害の増加を確認するものとなりそうだ、とのことです。この調査は、2010年に開始され、その結果の公表が待たれたいました。
このビデオニュースの中で、バスラ母子病院のサバク医師は、「先天性障害の増加は、イラク戦争において用いられた兵器によるものだ」と確信していると述べています。

BBC: major Iraq birth defect study expected to show increase linked to
conflict
The BBC has reported that a much anticipated study by the WHO and Iraqi
Ministry of Health will show that rates of birth defects in Iraq are higher
in areas that were subject to heavy fighting in 2003.
22 March 2013 - ICBUW <info at bandepleteduranium.org>

The report, broadcast on BBC World and available
online<http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-21873892>features
an interview with researchers at the Iraqi Ministry of Health
(MoH). The researchers indicate that the report, which has been produced
jointly by the WHO and MoH, will find that rates of birth defects are
higher in areas of Iraq that were subjected to heavy fighting in the 2003
war. The publication of the final report, scheduled for early this year has
been delayed, but the BBC's report offers a first glimpse at the results.

“*The BBC’s report fits with our expectations from smaller localised
studies and the reports of healthcare professionals in Iraq*,” said an
ICBUW spokesperson. “*Naturally we will await the publication of the full
report but should the findings and methodology prove to be robust, the
study could add considerably to the pressure for action to reduce the
legacy of modern conflict on public health. However more research will be
needed to establish the precise risk factors responsible.*”
