U-238 or denatured uranium (D.U.) is nuclear waste from nuclear reactors. The U.S.military is manufacturing it into shells and has used them in the Gulf War and Bosnia.They call them tank busters, they are nuclear weapons, and their use on any battlefield is a war crime. As a result U-238 is now detectable in the upper atmosphere. It covers the planet. Birth defects and diseases related to radiation poisoning are sky-rocketing in Iraq and Bosnia. Gulf War Syndrome is being attributed to radiation poisoning by U.S. veterans. U-238 has a half-life of 4.5 billion years. Stop the madness.

GWVRP EDITOR'S COMMENTS: Here is a long article about depleted uranium. What this news article fails to mention is the 2000 medical study linking depleted uranium exposure with cancer in lab rats. Although there is some hyperbole in the article there are some interesting points.
