The aforementioned study found that the cancer rate "had increased fourfold since before the US attack" and that the forms of cancer in Fallujah are "similar to those found among the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bomb survivors, who were exposed to intense fallout radiation."
Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Yeah, Americans paid for those bombs, too.
In September 2009, Fallujah General Hospital had 170 newborn babies:
* 24 percent were dead within the first seven days
* 75 percent of the dead babies were classified as deformed
Cockburn writes of a "12-fold increase in childhood cancer in under-14s. Infant mortality in the city is more than four times higher than in neighboring Jordan and eight times higher than in Kuwait."

Really, because I always thought that the DOZENS of epidemiological studies performed on US veterans found the correlation between service related disabilities and exposure to depleted uranium to be NON-EXISTANT.
But what use are facts when we have crudely penned pieces of agitprop from one of the Cockburns.

Since you want better sources: www.globalresearch.ca...
Here is a purely academic article: bjr.birjournals.org...
The evidence is present, all you have to do is look.
ok let me asume that you are fine with D.U.
would you want to drink the water in falluja?
would you want your children exposed to D.U.?
would you accept the use of D.U. in your country?
are you aware of what D.U. does to the human body?
do you realize that radiation kills?
that one microscopic partical of D.U. breathed in causes cancer?
would you personally accept the risk and be exposed as a test case?
study up on the biological effects of D.U.
then tell me there is no effect to populations
