Poison DUst: Depleted Uranium Kills   
Video;http://youtu.be/lnVt_Xe5UnI 9 min.

In the above video, Dr. Michio Kaku goes into details around DU dangers. He explains it very well.

"US soldiers are returning from Iraq to die of "mysterious" ailments - and the depleted uranium (DU) poisoning scandal just won't go away, despite efforts to cover it up. Protesters in New Haven spoke out against the U.S. military's use of DU, its effects on US troops, and cutbacks in veterans' medical benefits.

EPIDEMIOLOGIST DR ROSALIE BERTELL PhD EXPLAINS WHAT DU IS


Epidemiologist Dr. Rosalie Bertell PhD explains what depleted uranium (DU) is. She talks about the effects of the weaponized DU on the people of Iraq and the planet. Depleted uranium (DU) has a 4.5 billion year half life, so it continues to persist in the environment, contaminating people and the environment for at least 40 billion years before becoming something else.

Read 'Iraq, Silent Death' for more in depth details about the dangers of depleted uranium.

400 TONS OF RADIOACTIVE DEPLETED URANIUM DUST WAS SPREAD ALL OVER THE GULF

Over 400 TONS of radioactive depleted uranium dust was spread all over the Gulf. Many of the US soldiers and airmen who served over there were exposed to this poisonous, radioactive contaminant, just like many service people were exposed to Agent Orange in Vietnam.

BLOWIN' IN THE WIND' David Bradbury/Frontline Films 2003 (DU - Depleted Uranium) Doco
Video;  https://youtu.be/J-91-G474eY 1 hour

You cannot see, smell or taste DU, compared to just normal dust floating in the air. 

When DU shells hit a target, they burn and release uranium dust and uranium gas nano particles. The uranium gas nano particles travel long distances. The DU dust is thrown out of the explosion, and spreads out from the site of the explosion and covers large distances, especially if it is windy. The DU dust can also be stirred up and blown around by wind, once it settles back down to the ground. 

In the above video they talk about heavy metal poisoning, plus radiation poisoning that soldiers and civilians get from DU. The military says today that DU dust is safe and needs no special handling. They say it can safely be eaten. 

But the studies done by neutral third party scientists, doctors and other researchers universally seem to point in the opposite direction and find that DU is highly radioactive, dangerous to health as well as to the environment. 

The director of the DU Cleanup project led a team into Iraq to clean up a few of the DU contaminated sites. His whole team is now either very sick or dead. Even the project manager tests high for DU contamination. They get no help, no compensation, and all appeals for compensation (such as for Agent Orange vets) were denied, according to the director himself. He says that the military covers up and denies the danger of DU to the troops themselves, including his team.

Invisible War - Depleted Uranium and the politics of radiation

MEDICAL DOCTOR TALKS ABOUT HOW HE GOT PRESSURE TO STOP RESEARCH ON NEGATIVE HEALTH EFFECTS OF DU


A medical doctor talks about the pressure he got from the military to STOP his research on DU effects on soldiers. He said his career and his physical well being was threatened by the military. He explains that there are sixteen isotopes of uranium, and that any of them can create negative changes in DNA, tissues, organs and the entire animal. This doctor pursued his research anyway, despite the threats and intimidation.

As part of his research, he has found U - 236 (DU) in high amounts in soldiers. He found evidence that all four uranium isotopes are present in body fluids and organs among those soldiers that are in his program. He is curious how the military will come up with more lies around this, to try and explain all of this away.

GULF WAR SYNDROME AND DU


This video section also talks about how DU breathed in or eaten is deposited in kidneys, liver, testicles and other parts of the body, resulting in higher rates of cancer and genetic mutation. 

It is common for civilians and soldiers who are exposed to DU, to be diagnosed with thyroid problems, muscle problems, kidney problems, neurological problems and cancer. This complex of a whole variety of symptoms is commonly called Gulf War Syndrome. 

We went back to tanks that were left out in the desert from many years ago in the first Gulf war. We took a Geiger Counter and measured high levels of radiation; alpha, gamma radiation from depleted uranium, all around the tanks that were destroyed with DU shells.

The earth, air and water have also all been contaminated by DU. Over one million civilians have died due to the Gulf War. The cancer rates are ten times higher than before the war. Many children are born with deformities. The military says this is all 'normal'. 
Medical researchers found that depleted uranium DU is responsible for these high rates of deformities and cancers. Bone cancers, brain tumors, birth defects and more are all common. There is no help from the military. There is no medical care for these victims from DU weapons, even in the United States. In the US, we have developed and use a sophisticated weapons system, but we have no interest or the means to take care of the health problems that will continue for BILLIONS OF YEARS. 

The military says that all of these health problems and deformities among babies are 'normal'. Even US military soldiers' children have these same problems, but again the military said there are just 'normal' health issues among soldiers. It is common for babies of DU exposed soldiers to be born with no arms, no legs, with hands sticking straight out of the shoulders, as well as having other problems.

Soldiers cannot sue the government or the military for harm caused from DU or for anything else for that matter, (otherwise they would quickly go out of business). It is very expensive to treat and care for children that are deformed or if they have other genetic issues due to the toxic, radioactive uranium effects in babies. 

They ONLY way that these soldiers can get help for these children is to stay in the military. They also cannot complain or make noise about this situation, or their benefits are cut off. No one will insure a child with a 'pre-existing' condition, according to this video. 

In the second Gulf War, they took a fragment of a bomb in downtown Baghdad, and it was found to be radioactive after it was tested in Germany. This proves that DU weapons were used in downtown civilian areas. 

The global military industrial complex wants to profit from selling more DU weapons systems and ammunition. DU weapons are now a staple in the arms business around the world, and their use is spreading, which means the whole world is being contaminated for BILLIONS of years. 

(Each war from now on, will add to the contaminated DU zones and expand the amount of contaminated land. Each additional local small conflict will add tens of thousands to millions more children that will be born with problems, plus it will add to the untold number of civilians and soldiers exposed to this deadly poison, that lasts forever.)

DU WEAPONS ALSO USED ON BOSNIA, KOSOVO, YUGOSLAVIA, TESTED ON ALL MILITARY FIRING RANGES


Since the Gulf War, DU weapons have been used in Bosnia and Kosovo, as well as Yugoslavia. No one knows what is radioactive, or what was used to destroy armored vehicles or buildings. Neither NATO nor the US Defense Dept. will reveal where DU weapons have been used, or how much was used. They all say this is 'classified' information. 

They also claim that RAND did a study that found DU weapons were 'safe'. To do this 'study' RAND searched and found a few studies that had more or less positive outcomes in the uranium mining industry (which has nothing to do with DU made from nuclear waste products). 

They ignored a HUGE pile of studies that found uranium has negative effects on human health, from all around the world. This 'positive' conclusion is now the 'official' result of ALL of the science globally, according to the military industrial complex, which largely 'owns' Congress and the Senate, as well as the White House. 

In the video, one researcher found unusual bullets and shells on the battle field, and became suspicious. He saw children playing with what turned out to be DU bullets. These children later died of leukemia. Before they died, they got ulcers that were not painful. These DU bullets were measured and put out 11 milliSieverts per hour. 

Conventional DU bullets cannot be this radioactive, according to the military. But the radiation detector does not lie. This may be what millions of children are playing with all around the world, where DU dust is present. I wonder why the cancer rates are skyrocketing worldwide for children? Why are there now whole hospitals set up just to treat children with cancer worldwide? This used to be unknown, or VERY rare.. Now it seems like an every day occurrence. 

Two companies were paid to clean up a small amount of DU contamination Kuwait. It took three years to clean up 24 DU contaminated vehicles that were sitting out in the desert. They had to use special toxic waste clothing, special preparations and used high level radioactive toxic waste disposal methods. It took three years and cost millions of dollars to dispose of these few vehicles safely, without putting more people into harm's way. 

Thousands of contaminated DU dust filled tanks and DU shells, bullets and bomb fragments are still sitting everywhere, in many countries, including where children play. Who is going to pay to clean up this mess that will last for 40 BILLION years, if no one cleans it up?

EVERY CITY, GUN RANGE AND DU TEST SITE IN THE US IS A CESSPOOL FULL OF DEADLY HEAVY METALS, CHEMICALS AND RADIATION


bowling March 14, 2015  "There was the nuclear scientist 30 year old who worked at the us nuclear complex in idaho who bought a gun and and special purse for it in boise. She was in walmart in northern idaho and her 3 yo son pulled the gun out of her purse and shot her in the head killed her. 

Virtually every state in the us has a radioactive shooting range with depleted uranium bullets. Half have had underground nuclear bombs detonated. Half have nuclear reactors with hundreds of thousand of tons of nuc high level nuclear waste right there. They dump billions of gallons of radioactive water into every waterway in the east us. Thee are 7000 uranium mines, 100 uranium mills and tailings ponds, 3000 nuclear waste dumps, 300 plutonium uranium medical isotope facilities across the the us. Every city has a thousand gallons of radioactive isotopes 1 oz of which would fry your ass if exposed to it."

rogerthat March 16, 2015 EPA asks Army to examine alternatives to plan to leave 160K of depleted uranium at old site THE ASSOCIATED PRESS March 15, 2015

MADISON, Indiana — Federal environmental officials want the U.S. Army to explore alternatives to its plan to leave an estimated 160,000 pounds of depleted uranium projectiles in place at a former weapons testing site in southern Indiana that is now accessible to hunters.

The Army conducted ammunition tests from 1941 to 1995 at the former Jefferson Proving Ground firing range. As part of its plan to end its Nuclear Regulatory Commission license, the Army wants to leave in place about 162,000 pounds of depleted uranium projectiles and millions of conventional shells, live detonators, primers or fuses. (http://cjky.it/1GSozWB ).

How many of these depleted uranium dust contaminated sites are scattered all over the United States, and where is that dust blowing?

AS IF DU BULLETS ARE NOT BAD ENOUGH, NOW THEY ARE COMING OUT WITH PLUTONIUM BULLETS, WHICH ARE ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE THAT MUCH MORE TOXIC AND DEADLY TO HUMANS AS HOT PARTICLES


In addition to these smart weapons, sources said that the Pakistani military has developed plutonium-based anti tank bullets which can prove very lethal for enemy armored vehicles, especially those of neighboring India.

US MILITARY WON'T TEST FOR DU POISONING OR INTERNAL CONTAMINATION


The DU test costs $1,000, so the U.S. government won't test for DU poisoning. "More than 240,000 Gulf War veterans are on permanent medical disability and more than 11,000 are dead. They have been denied testing, medical care, and compensation for depleted uranium exposure and related illnesses since 1991," say reports. 

A U.S. government study found that 67% of post-Gulf War babies have serious birth defects or serious illnesses. In Italy, eight soldiers home from Iraq died of cancer, probably caused by DU exposure. Today, Italy proposed new legislation to censor media covering the military. The new law would bar any reporting on the health effects of depleted uranium. Anyone who breaks the law could face up to 20 years in a military prison, including civilians. You thought they came home safely from the war." http://truth-tv.org

Manmade uranium fuel generated dust and gas is dangerous to human health, no matter where it comes from. Whether the source of uranium nano dust is from a nuclear meltdown and/or explosion, such as Fukushima, or DU dust from depleted uranium weapons, it kills..

Nuclear weapons, including DU shells, bombs and weapons need to be abolished, along with the nuclear power plants that are nothing more than an excuse to make more DU weapons. 

The group Physicians for Social Responsibility, (PSR) has reported that depleted uranium presents a clear and present danger both to troops and civilians, and compared the coverup of the dangers both by the military and by Republican politicians, to the Agent Orange conspiracy after Vietnam. http://www.psr.org/nuclear-weapons/depleted-uranium.html
