Depleted Uranium - NATO's Dark Secret

submitted by maxplayer on 03/23/14 1

The US and NATO militaries began using bullets made of DU in the 1991 Gulf War and have been using it in every major armed conflict since that time. It is used because it is extremely dense (1.6 times as dense as lead) which makes it ideal for piercing heavy armor. The U.S. used 640,000 pounds of DU ammunition just in the first gulf war alone. In the 2003 invasion they used an estimated 4,000,000 pounds. ------ Visit our website: StormCloudsGathering.com Follow us on Facebook: facebook.com/StormCloudsGathering Follow us on Twitter: twitter.com/collapseupdates Get weekly email updates: tinyurl.com/naturalrightsnewsletter If you support our work please consider making a donation: StormCloudsGathering.com/donate ------- Some sources (There are plenty more if you are willing to do your own research): Depleted Uranium Particles pass from nose, through optic nerves to brain: www.environmentalhealthnews.org/ehs/newscience/inhaled-uranium-enters-brain-through-the-nose/ Concentrations of DU in Bones and tissues: www.nap.edu/openbook.php?record_id=9953&page=97 Sub-micron sized DU Particles (U.N. pdf) www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&ved=0CDMQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Funidir.org%2Fpdf%2Farticles%2Fpdf-art2756.pdf&ei=qunRUJ2iF9Kx0AHv9oG4Bg&usg=AFQjCNF-aU6c1AxjfSVhgfgJ_LcLEaFmCQ&sig2=x29PEqpa6oxXPx2Wsu4xSA&bvm=bv.1355534169,d.dmQ Cancer and Birth Defects caused by DU: www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/dec/30/faulluja-birth-defects-iraq www.bmj.com/content/319/7207/401.2?view=long&pmid=10445914 DU and Gulf war syndrome: news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/270800.stm Attempts to ban DU: www.bandepleteduranium.org/en/a/89.html
