"Uranium" appears to attract attention in whatever form it is. I had an article (probably from the ATOM journal) which described the use of uranium salts in the treatment of diabetes. I am unable to trace it now.Copious amounts of uranium salts were given to patients; consequent symptoms such as reduction in urine was actually due to kidney damage, but mistaken to be due to cure of the primary disease!
Believe it or not uranium nitrite is still listed as homeopathic drug to treat diabetes, bedwetting etc!
I was shocked to see that drug is recommnded for "curing" bedwetting of children. Since homeopaths prescribe extreme dilution, I am not sure whether it will cause any damage to the kidneys!
The following may be of interest ( from Oak Ridge Associated Universities)
Uranium Homeopathic Medicine (ca. 1940s)
(Photos of two vials)
This is an empty 1 dram vial of uranium metallicum homeopathic medication produced by Boericke & Tafel. Given the CM designation, it would be considered to have a very high potency. The CM refers to a 100M dilution where the M indicates a dilution of 1 : 1,000.
Like most homeopathic medications, it is intended to treat a wide variety of symptoms. Too many to list here......'
.......Uranium containing homeopathic medications such as uranium nitricum and uranium aceticum are available today. They are perfectly legal drugs even though the government doesn't recognize that they have any efficacy. (I added the underline)
Another prescription (From another web site)
For Bedwetting, there is a combination of remedies carefully designed to alleviate immediate symptoms and to work at a deeper level, helping to prevent bedwetting and urine leakage.
Uranium nitrate is among the combination of drugs suggested to treat childhood bloodwetting
Uranium Nitricum (Uranium Nitrate) – for treatment of enuresis and remedy for glycosuria (excretion of glucose in the urine).
Probably these thoughts are not appropriate when you wre having happy holidays!

Subject: Re: [ RadSafe ] DU is Responsible for Global Diabetes Epidemic!
Thanks for posting this bizarre article which tries to make the claim that
DU is the problem with diabetes rather than the global epidemic of obesity
and numerous poor dietary habits which are part of the Western diet
[consumption of refined grains, sugar, etc.] documented as contributing to
increased diabetes risk when these dietary habits are adopted by a society.
It's quite clear that Dunkin' donuts, and Krispy Kremes are more of a
diabetes risk than DU. :-)
Has anyone ever suggested the award of a tribute to some "scientist" who
seeks to follow in the footsteps of the renowned anti-nuclear manipulator of
statistics, uniformly discredited by the US National Academy of Sciences,
Health Physics Society, etc., in the person of Ernest Sternglass. This
"AWARD" would take the following general form, and we could call it the:
"Dr. Ernest Sternglass Wannabe Award"
Stewart Farber, MS Public Health
radproject at aol.com
"DR. ERNEST STERNGLASS WANNABE AWARD"
Whereas Dr. Ernest Sternglass linked radiation exposure to dozens of health
detriments such as the emergence of the AIDS virus in the Congo, and;
Whereas Dr. Ernest Sternglass made claims ...........[fill in the blank on
another unsubstantiated claim], and;
Whereas Ernest Sternglass made claims that....................[fill in the
blank on another unsubstantiated claim];
AND WHEREAS Dr. Sternglass' was repudiated by the US National Academy of
Sciences, the US Health Physics Society -a group of 6,000 radiation
protection professionals, the American Pediatric Association, the
French....[add details]........, the British Medical Council, etc., etc [add
3 or 6 or more scientific and medical groups which took a negative position
and now in the discredited footsteps of Dr. Ernest Sternglass, Dr. CHRIS
BUSBY, without any statistically significant evidence supporting his claims,
and in the absence of any biological mechanism, and with crudely
manipulated biostatistics has claimed that DU exposure to military personnel
and members of the public has been linked to:
.........[fill in with some details related to diabetes];
.........[fill in with some details related to 2nd exaggerated claim];
.........[fill in with some details related to 3rd exaggerated claim];
.........[fill in the blank]; --cancer
.........[fill in the blank]; --etc.
WE HEREBY AWARD DR. BUSBY, the prestigious ERNEST STERNGLASS WANNABE AWARD,
in honor of Dr. Busby's tireless efforts to appear as a crusading hero to
innocent members of the public who cannot understand how cynically they are
being manipulated by a "scientist" intent on self-aggrandizement based upn
the publics' concern with risk of radiation exposure, said concern being
exploited completely out of proportion to the known and proven risks of
radiation exposure gathered by legitimate scientists as a result of the
largest body of health and environmental research ever carried out by
mankind, gathered at a cost of many billions of dollars.
