What's with this (bottom of page 503) from Dr. Rosalie Bertell:

"Thorium-234 decays to protactinium-234m (Pa-234m), an isomer of Pa-234,
which has a half-life of 1.17 minutes and is a beta emitter.
Protactinium-234m decays to Pa-234, which has a half-life of 6.7 hours and
is an alpha emitter."

Sorry, but Pa-234 was a beta emitter (with a very distinctive 1001 KeV gamma
photopeak) decaying to U-234.

>From Tuli's Nuclear Wallet Card, Pa-234m (β- : 99.84 %, IT : 0.16 %; 1.17 m
3) and Pa-234 (β- : 100.00 %; 6.70 h 5)

Critiques of the Gray Nun, now self-proclaimed expert in DU, Dr Bertel,
peace activist, are welcome.  Note the way that Moret, not an expert in much
of anything let alone DU where she makes her living preaching to the anti-DU
crusade all over the world, has sprayed this around to everyone including
the President of US.
