Essay: Uranium contamination of the civil population, especially by the US-NATO-Israel led wars

Depleted Uranium Far Worse Than 9/11
Depleted Uranium Dust Public Health Disaster For The People Of Iraq and
Afghanistan

by Doug Westerman

In 1979, depleted uranium (DU) particles escaped from the National Lead Industries factory near Albany, N.Y.,which was manufacturing DU weapons for the U.S military. The particles traveled 26 miles and were discovered in a laboratory filter by Dr. Leonard Dietz, a nuclear physicist. This discovery led to a shut down of the factory in 1980, for releasing morethan 0.85 pounds of DU dust into the atmosphere every month, and involved a cleanup of contaminated properties costing over 100 million dollars.

Imagine a far worse scenario. Terrorists acquire a million pounds of the deadly dust and
scatter it in populated areas throughout the U.S. Hundreds of children report symptoms. Many acquire cancer and leukemia, suffering an early and painful death. Huge increases in severe birth defects are reported. Oncologists are overwhelmed. Soccer fields, sand lots and parks, traditional play areas for kids, are no longer safe. People lose their most basic freedom, the ability to go outside and safely breathe. Sounds worse than 9/11? Welcome to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Like I've suggested over and over again to the members of this forum, post the context of the link you provide; otherwise, over time, the link becomes inactive.

Has it been proven that depleted uranium is dangerous?
