Feel free to contact Chuck Nicol and make him aware of the errors in his analysis below which has been provided to members of the California State Assembly

Purpose  . DU is a chemically toxic, radioactive heavy metal waste  
          product that has a half-life of 4.5 billion years, may cause  
          genetic mutations, damage the kidneys and lungs, and may be  
          cancerous when inhaled or ingested. Exposure to DU has been  
          identified as a possible cause of Gulf War syndrome/illness.  
          While the scientific understanding of DU's effect on health is  
          still evolving, there appears to be ample evidence that there            
          are some health risks associated with DU being embedded in the  
          body.  As a result, this bill seeks to ensure that California  
          veterans are notified of the availability of federally screening  
          for DU exposure.
