         This is intended for James Salsman.  Since he made this claim on 
RADSAFE it's only proper that he substantiate it here.

         James, on March 6, you wrote, "So Dr. Kang goes back and reviews 
700+ medical records, and finds that the number of birth defects has 
increased 20%."

         By medical records, do you mean Kang pulled the charts of over 700 
patients and read them?  Does he have 700+ patients whose charts he can 
pull and read?  I don't know how many patients the typical doctor has, but 
that sounds like a lot of patients.  Plus it would have to be all patients 
who were assigned to Iraq, or to theaters where depleted uranium was used.

         What is your source for this claim (of 700+), and where did Kang 
publish his findings?  To keep track of this many medical records, Kang 
would have had to put something in writing.
