Depleted Uranium Contaminates the Body for Twenty Years

Traces of depleted uranium (DU) have been found in people even 20 years after their initial exposure, according to research conducted by a scientist from the University of Leicester, England and presented at the 119th annual meeting of the Geological Society of America in Denver.

Professor Randall R. Parrish and colleagues developed a new method for detecting DU residue in urine. They then tested this method on people known or suspected to have been exposed to DU, including a large group of veterans from the 1991 Gulf War. Traces of DU were found among all those known to have been exposed, even more than 20 years prior.

And during that 20 years the DU is causing all sorts of damage- causing cancers & chromosomal damage (leading to birth defects).
