the use of depleted uranium in munitions and weaponry is likely to come under intense scrutiny now that new research that found that uranium can bind to human DNA. The finding will likely have far-reaching implications for returned soldiers, civilians living in what were once war-zones and people who might live near uranium mines or processing facilities.
Uranium - when manifested as a radioactive metal - has profound and debilitating effects on human DNA. These radioactive effects have been well understood for decades, but there has been considerable debate and little agreement concerning the possible health risks associated with low-grade uranium ore (yellowcake) and depleted uranium.

In 2005, the city of Edina passed an ordinance to make trespassing a petty misdemeanor, similar to a speeding ticket - which meant that only bench trials would be held when the citations were challenged. Previously, those who were cited were charged with a misdemeanor under state statutes, resulting in the city expending time to prosecute the alleged violators, and for them to contest the charges in front of a jury. Hughes said, at the time, that it would be fair to say that the ordinance was written with the ATK protesters in mind. "It has certainly worked well in this instance," Hughes said. "I wouldn't say that Edina is the city that invented this process. Other cities have certainly categorized trespassing as a petty misdemeanor. I think it has definitely helped streamline the criminal proceedings in the wake of demonstrations."
ATK – World's #1 Producer of Depleted Uranium Munitions ATK has supplied the US Department of Defense with over 16 million depleted uranium (DU) shells, most of which were machined and assembled at the Twin City Army Ammunition Plant (TCAAP) in Arden Hills, MN (a Superfund clean-up site). DU munitions contain a solid depleted uranium rod inside the shell. The DU 'penetrator' inside the shells are composed of uranium-238, a radioactive, alpha emitting metallic toxic waste left over from the uranium "enrichment" process. Combined with titanium, the DU alloy is extremely dense, self sharpening and makes devastating armor piercing ammunition. The shell literally burns through armor upon impact. A report by the Army Environmental Policy Institute (AEPI) describing research on hard target testing states "As much as 70% of a DU penetrator can be aerosolized when it strikes a tank..." forming micrometer-size uranium oxide particles that can be inhaled or ingested. DU munitions were extensively used in both gulf wars and Kosovo. Many leading medical experts feel 'Gulf War Syndrome' may be caused by DU exposure, among other things. The DoD continues to deny any problem or responsibility of DU exposure by civilians or soldiers. ATK refuses to release medical studies of Depleted Uranium production workers at TCAAP.
