In the conclusion it that study they stated:

"We did not, however, have the ability to determine if the excess was
caused by inherited, environmental, or synergistic factors, or was due
to chance." They also discuss the statistical insufficiencies of the
study due to low numbers of subjects to study.

This is an inclusive study where they admit the don't know why the
numbers are the way they are, so to link it do DU is simply a pure
fabrication and verbal terrorism at its worst.
