AbstractDepleted uranium )enrichment less than about 0.7%( is obtained from the nuclear waste obtained from civil power stations or nuclear reactors used for military purposes or reactors used for scientific purposes. The ratio of uranium effective is between 0.2 –0.3% .It has a high capacity for penetration and leading to high temperature more than ten thousand degrees celsius . It is very harmful to human health. When human body exposure to its effect leads to collapse the immune system and causing different diseases. This article focuses on the effect of adverse effect of uranium radiation on people of Babylon city .Tests were made by an environmental specialist team. Researchers were conducted the statistical analysis of cancer patients number distributed in all areas of the city. Data were taken from Morgan hospital . Comparison between regions of city center show that there is highest injury severity in some areas but not the other. The highest intensity of infection is directly proportional to the intensity of concentration of uranium in the soil. Comparison is made also between the center and its districts.
