HEALTH EFFECTS OF DEPLETED URANIUM

This page suggests that depleted uranium has no significant negative health effects. However, the WHO claims that, apart from being weakly radioactive, it is also chemically toxic and has potential negative effects on human health. The article says that "neither civilian nor military use of DU is likely to produce exposures to DU significantly above normal background levels of uranium", but that does not necessarily mean that depleted uranium is a harmless metal. I mean, if a child somehow found a depleted uranium bullet, I'd strongly advise against putting a string on it and wearing it as a necklace. I suggest that this article should be changed to reflect the potential health risks. Here is a link to the WHO page about uranium and depleted uranium. http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs257/en/ --Maquissar 21:19, 26 February 2010 (EST)
