Lady McMoo Depleted Uranium (107* d) RE: Depleted Uranium 26 Feb 01


In its solid form the levels of radioactivity are fairly low. As I understand it, and I may well be wrong, the problem arises mainly after detonation has taken place and the remains are dispersed as very fine particulate matter. This matter can be inhaled where these particles lodge in the lungs and lymphatic tissues where the carcinogenic and toxic effects are more problematical. Sorry Amos, don't have numbers to hand.
