And Dr. Frank von Hippel of Princeton University has concluded that even if a ton of depleted uranium dust were spread all over Kosovo, the resulting radiation level would be within one one-hundredth of 1 percent of the normal level. In fact, the health risk from radiation emitted from depleted uranium is so low that it is used in radiation shielding for hospitals.Source
a closer look (past the radiation aspect) will show that the dust itself is extremely toxic without radiation.....not chemical/biologic class toxicity, but quite toxic in ways similar to other heavy metals.
you DO NOT want to be a driver or shotgun on a lowboy in a convoy of lowboys lugging dust-laden Iraqi tanks destroyed with DU-tipped projectiles......trust me! (or look into it further for yourself)
Thanks for the info.
