I am an engineer, not a scientist, but what kind of science is this: "By
comparing the sample population rates to the cancer rates in Egypt and
Jordan" (quoted from below).

Genetic damage and health in Fallujah Iraq worse than Hiroshima
Results of a population-based epidemiological study organized by Malak
Hamdan and Chris Busby are published tomorrow in the International Journal
of Environmental Studies and Public Health (IJERPH) based in Basle,
Switzerland. They show increases in cancer, leukemia and infant mortality
and perturbations of the normal human population birth sex ratio
significantly greater than those reported for the survivors of the A-Bombs
at Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.
Results of a survey in Jan/Feb 2010 of 711 houses and more than 4000
individuals in Fallujah show that in the five years following the 2004
attacks by USA-led forces there has been a 4-fold increase in all cancer.
Interestingly, the spectrum of cancer is similar to that in the Hiroshima
survivors who were exposed to ionizing radiation from the bomb and uranium
in the fallout. By comparing the sample population rates to the cancer
rates in Egypt and Jordan, researchers found  there has been a 38-fold
increase in leukemia (20 cases) almost a  10-fold increase in female breast
cancer (12 cases) and significant increases in lymphoma and brain tumours
in adults.
