I saw a documentary only a couple of days ago about one of the Iraq towns where the occurrence of cancer is more common that the common cold the doctor there said and the birth deformities, which are horrendous and lead to early deaths are so common its obvious that something has contaminated the area.

Perhaps at an airport there would be more of a sensitivity to it.
But if we go nuts every time DU is detected we are going to have a pretty distracted emergency response service and for no reason.
I agree completely. I am not familiar with the detection process or whether or not you can determine if radiation is being emitted from DU or not. I think caution is wise with respect to sensitive areas like we have agreed on.
Yes industrial DU is radioactive. But it is obvious people don't understand how radio activity works. You would need to be exposed to this stuff for constantly for decades, maybe centuries before any ill effects manifested for the exposure.
Depending of level of radiation emitted correct? If it was a minimal amount it would take a long period of time to accumulate, but if the opposite was true, the time frame is reversed right?
DU is used in so many different things. There's also a lot of propaganda surrounding DU. No one actually looks at the facts about it. Especially not on ats where there's always some yahoo claiming it killed someone they know without any proof. No solid connection.
I agree again. From some preliminary research into, there are many conflicting reports on the material, both anecdotal and research based.
Conspiracy theory on ATS is more powerful than science.
True, but the conspiracy angle of any subject is what attract many here, as long as they are willing to listen to reason and logic, then all is in good fun.
