Afghan ‘health link’ to uranium – BBC 4/30/08

EXCERPTS: “Doctors in Kabul and Kandahar showed data indicating that the incidence of a number of health conditions, including birth defects, has doubled in under two years. “We have premature births and malformations,” said one doctor, who wished to remain anonymous, in one of the main maternity and neo-natal hospitals in the country.
“Malformations include neural tube defects and malformation of limbs; for example, the head is smaller than normal, or the head is larger than normal, or there is a big mass on the back of the baby…In 2002 and 2003 the group ran programmes analysing urine from Afghans. In some, it found levels of uranium hundreds of times greater than in Gulf War veterans. Asaf Durakovic, URMC’s president and a former US army adviser, believes that exposure to DU weapons may have brought a rise in birth defects as well as “symptoms of muscular-skeletal pains, immune system disorders, lung disease, and eventually cancer”.
