There are a lot of non military organisations who see the link between Uranium 238 and the illness there.

Asking Nato for their opinion is like asking Phillip Moris if Tobacco is dangerous

Klaus,

I come from a military family and would trust a military source long before I would trust a civilian one. In addition several of these "non-military" sources would tell me that most of the food in my house would kill me, or cause other problems. Unlike civilian groups, people in the military are concerned about the safety of themselves and their soldiers. Many people in the civilian world do not understand how often members of the military risk their lives. Safety is the most important thing in the military, whether its shooting at the firing range, or engaging in a live fire exercise or performing other training that is often difficult. Their not tainted in the way civilian groups are with a commercial agenda or political agenda, and have to deal with multiple safety issues every hour of every day, unlike these civilian groups.

In addition this is the findings of NATO, a 19 nation organization. The analogy with Phillip Morris, a strictly commercial entity, is a false one.

There have been multiple studies done on those actually involved in Uranium(natural Uranium) mining who often breath in dust that is much more toxic or radioactive than Uranium 238. They do not suffer any health problems. Uranium is everywhere, its in the water you drink, the food you eat, and its even in you.

nbcrusader: you think Medicins sans Frontiers and ai are biased? Most of the time it's just a bad idea to let the organisations who mess it up (Exxon, Meet industry, P.M. or Nato) pay the scientists who should say if it's dangerous or not.
