        First published on Aug , this authoritative report by Dr. Al- Azzawi addresses the war crimes committed by the US and its allies through the use of depleted uranium (radioactive) ammunition, resulting in countless deaths attributable to the spread of leukemia among children, congenital malformations, breast cancer. etc. Dr. Al-Azzawi is a Research . 3. Background to the SCHER opinion on depleted uranium. There has been long-standing concern about possible health effects of depleted uranium (DU), particularly from its use in armour-piercing munitions, since the first Gulf War in Earlier studies which found no conclusive evidence of hazard are disputed.

      Detailed assessments of such exposures have been performed. UNEP, IAEA, several State Governments and research organisations quantified environmental exposures to DU in the Balkans, Kuwait and in Iraq. Presence of DU and natural U can be assessed with high sensitivity by quantifying U isotopes by ICP- MS or by specific radiological techniques.   Depleted uranium is extremely dense and hard, and is used for armour-piercing bullets or shells. Fears over health implications led to a study by the WHO in There is no scientific or medical evidence to link depleted uranium with the .

      Key issues for UN uranium testing in Iraq 10 April Toxic and radiological effects of Uranium contamination may include adverse effects on immune response to endemic health problems. Uranium testing must include victims killed or injured by US weapons and victims of any new epidemics that develop in the next weeks and months including. In a report, Gulf War and Health, Volume 1: Depleted Uranium, Sarin, Pyridostigmine Bromide, and Vaccines, the IOM concluded that there was not enough evidence to draw conclusions as to whether long-term health problems are associated with exposure to depleted uranium, a component of some military munitions and armor.

Depleted uranium (DU; also referred to in the past as Q-metal, depletalloy or D) is uranium with a lower content of the fissile isotope U than natural uranium.

Natural uranium contains about % U, while the DU used by the U.S. Department of Defense contains % U or less. Uses of DU take advantage of its very high density of g/cm 3 (% denser than.

Vienna International Centre, PO Box A Vienna, Austria Telephone: +43 (1)Facsimile +43 (1) It is less-radioactive than naturally occurring uranium and uranium is naturally found all over the place. It is a toxic metal, much like lead, but it is nowhere nearly dangerously radioactive.

These tinfoil-hat nutcases and depleted uranium have something in common. They are incredibly dense. That is why depleted uranium is used as projectiles/5(9).

Depleted uranium residual radiological risk assessment for Kosovo sites. Health concern is related to the risk arising from contamination of areas in Kosovo with depleted uranium penetrators and dust. Although chemical toxicity is the most significant health risk related to uranium, radiation exposure has been allegedly related to cancers Cited by: This technical brief was developed to address the misconception that depleted uranium represents only a radiological health hazard.

It provides accepted data and references to additional sources for both the radiological and chemical characteristics, health risks and references for both the monitoring and measurement, and applicable treatment techniques for.
