The WHO tells the truth about uranium solubility, while
those attempting to cover for the gross negligence which
has caused the illness of hundreds of thousands as well
as thousands of premature deaths (based only on the 24%
increase in cancer fatalities reported by Sandia for the
radiological hazard alone) do not.

True, mostly because the water table in Kosovo and Bosnia
is fairly deep, while in Iraq it is often just a meter
deep in the south where most of the pyrophoric uranium
weaponry was used.  See:  D. Ribera, F. Labrot, G. Tisnerat,
and J.-F. Narbonne, "Uranium in the environment:
occurrence, transfer, and biological effects," Reviews of
Environmental Contamination and Toxicology, vol. 146 (1996),
pp. 53–89.
