Uranium Weapons Pose No Long-Term Health Risks

 

A study examining Gulf War soldiers who were exposed to uranium weapons in friendly fire accidents has shown no long-term damage to their health.

The study found that some of the soldiers had mild effects which wore off over time. This is especially good news for them and for soldiers in the Balkans, who had feared a greater incidence of leukemia from being exposed to these weapons.

"Nobody has leukemia in this cohort" said civilian scientist Dr. Melissa McDiarmid, an expert on toxicology, after examining the soldiers most exposed to uranium. However, she is still observing them to be sure nothing turns up later.
