Depleted Uranium (DU) is a waste product of nuclear weapon production and the nuclear power industry. It is used to make armor piercing missiles (exploiting Uranium's extreme density). It aerosolises into a fine powder on impact, effectively toxifying the environment in which it is used.

Official Narrative

The health effects of such pollution are disputed.

Concerns

In November 2012, the Bulletin of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology in Heidelberg published a study that revealed that the number of congenital deformities in Basra (Iraq) had increased seven-fold between 1994 and 2003 (after the Gulf War followed by the 2003 Invasion of Iraq).[1]

Second Event Theory

Dr. Chris Busby has been a vocal critic of the official narrative that pollution by depleted uranium has negligible impact on human health, developing the Second Event Theory (SET) which suggests that such radiation is vastly more damaging than admitted - explaining the huge increase in cancer in Iraq after the attacks by the US military.

Deadly Dust

Dr Dr Siegwart-Horst Günther traveled in Iraq after the 2nd war and made his findings known in the two movies: "Der Arzt und die verstrahlten Kinder von Basra" (The doctor and the contaminated children of Basra) and "Deadly Dust" (2004 and 2007). He smuggled the remains of uranium ammunition from the Iraqi war zone to Berlin for examination, whereupon he was prosecuted for the “dissemination of radioactive material”.[2][3][4]

Cover up of health impacts

Commercially-controlled media has not paid much attention to DU as a lingering health hazard. Nafeez Ahmed[5] and others have alleged that the WHO is involved in hiding the health impacts of the use of depleted uranium.
