I've been skimming the posts on DU and health.  Mostly sound &  fury.  But I 
have to report:  we have a mostly foreign crew  working overseas on a DU job; 
with little no prior rad experience.  They  attribute every little ache and 
pain to the DU.  If they can think of it,  DU is the culprit.  Risk scholars 
talk about "availability bias."  A  recent (available) piece of information gets 
over-emphasized, at the expense of  better information.  Another example of 
pollutant du jour.
