In war zones, the explosion of bombs, bullets, and other ammunition releases multiple neurotoxicants into the environment. The Middle East is currently the site of heavy environmental disruption by massive bombardments. A very large number of US military bases, which release highly toxic environmental contaminants, have also been erected since 2003. Current knowledge supports the hypothesis that war-created pollution is a major cause of rising birth defects and cancers in Iraq. We created elemental bio-imaging of trace elements in deciduous teeth of children with birth defects from Iraq. Healthy and naturally shed teeth from Lebanon and Iran were also analyzed for trace elements. Lead (Pb) was highest in teeth from children with birth defects who donated their teeth from Basra, Iraq (mean 0.73–16.74 208Pb/43Ca ppm, n = 3). Pb in healthy Lebanese and Iranian teeth were 0.038–0.382 208Pb/43Ca ppm (n = 4) and 0.041–0.31 208Pb/43Ca ppm (n = 2), respectively. Our hypothesis that increased war activity coincides with increased metal levels in deciduous teeth is confirmed by this research. Lead levels were similar in Lebanese and Iranian deciduous teeth. Deciduous teeth from Iraqi children with birth defects had remarkably higher levels of Pb. Two Iraqi teeth had four times more Pb, and one tooth had as much as 50 times more Pb than samples from Lebanon and Iran.
Uranium and thorium were not detected in any of the samples. Detection limits for U and Th are estimated to be in the ppb range for LA-ICP-MS analysis. Concentrations of U and Th in human teeth have been reported as
I posted this on another site that I will link .
The point I was trying to make before my other thread turned into a # show . Is that people like us who should be watching for conspiracies. Are in fact being suckered by the US government. They just show a shiny nickel and use a sexy name. Then turd factories like Global Research Start throwing bull# out as Clickbait and the whole world falls in line. start throwing bull# out as Clickbait and the whole world falls in line
Depleted uranium isn’t good for anyone. But the thousands of tons of dioxins , carcinogens, lead, Mercury, chromium yada yada yada. Are the biggest health threat to people of Iraq .
But it would also be a hell of a lot more expensive to clean up.
So we are all content to glare at the evil US and it’s war machine .
Uncle Sam doesn’t care because he’s looking at everyone and laughing up his sleeve .

Complete lack of uranium in the victims says everything to me . Not to mention that I haven’t been able to find hard data on anyone suffering from DU worldwide unless there were embed in fragments .

I remember reading something about the inoculations soldiers received before the Gulf war might have caused problems.
Rules established under the law and published Wednesday in the Federal Register say the VA will pay for veterans to see non-VA doctors if they have to wait longer than 20 days or drive more than 30 minutes for primary or mental healthcare at a VA facility.
For specialty care, they can see private doctors at VA expense if they have to wait longer than 28 days or drive more than an hour to see a VA provider.
Previously, veterans who had to drive more than 40 miles or wait longer than 30 days could choose to see a private doctor paid for by the VA.
