Why are birth defects becoming so much more common in Fallujah?



  1. 0 Votes

    Doctors in Fallujah are reporting up to 15 times the usual number of birth defects as well as an increase in early life cancers, and are attributing it to the toxic aftermath of the decades-long war. International experts are being urged to take soil samples in an effort to determine the exact cause, though chemical and radiation poisoning are highly suspected. Other possible causes are air pollution, drug use during pregnancy, malnutrition, and the psychological condition of the mother, all of which are definitely serious problems caused by living in a war-torn region.
