If the dangers of DU were as evident as these emotional articles 
attempt to imply, one would expect a significant number of these 
cases to be observed. I am not an expert on esophagus cancer, but 
what are the causative factors, and timing of onset. Cancers occur in 
general populations, at a rate of 40% of all individuals (both lethal 
and not). Military individuals are also going to emulate this general 
population, as will those who work in my company, my neighbourhood, 
etc. Blaming everything on the fact that a person worked with or was 
exposed to radiation caused their cancer is simply looking for a 
scapegoat. People get ill, and unfortunately, people do die, from all 
causes. Not just radiation. It's too easy to point to the radiation. 
But the statistics don't validate that.
