Poisoning Iraq

*By Maria LaHood and Matt Howard*

Birth defects and cancer rates seem to have skyrocketed in Iraq in the last
15 years, and mounting evidence
<http://www.bandepleteduranium.org/en/docs/216.pdf> indicates that depleted
uranium (DU) munitions could be responsible. DU is a radioactive and
chemically toxic substance the U.S. military uses in armor-piercing
weapons. DU burns upon impact, and if DU dust is inhaled or ingested or if
there is exposure to DU fragments, radioactive material can be absorbed
into skeletal tissue and organs.


*Maria LaHood is a Senior Staff Attorney at the Center for Constitutional
Rights <https://www.ccrjustice.org/>(CCR).*

*Matt Howard is Communications Director of Iraq Veterans Against the War
<http://www.ivaw.org/>. He served in the Marine Corps from 2001 to 2006 and
completed two tours in Iraq.*
