Dear Dr. Long:
Thank you for your message:

> far more likely than DU....
If that were true, then conflicts prior to February 1991's
Operation Dessert Storm would have led to increases in the
birth defect incident rate in children of the involved
troops and civilians.
Are you able to show any evidence of that?
The kind of birth defects that have been observed do not
match a folate deficiency, and the U.S. and U.K. troops are
both fed floate-enriched foods. If the troops' increase
in their kids' birth defect incidence rate was due to diet,
then shouldn't the effect be apparent in far more troops?
If these were legitimate hypotheses, they would have been
advanced, developed, and buttressed with evidence by the
resourceful interests in favor of pyrophoric depleted
uranium munitions long ago, but they have not been because
they can not be, because the evidence is contrary and
consistent with chromosome damage from uranyl poisoning.
