Dr. Cherry,

The partial orderings of this question will be different depending on
age and mass:

> Please place the following tissue types in the order you believe it is
> best to consider for treatment of a 100 mg uranyl exposure:
> 1. Chromosomes
> 2. Germ cells
> 3. Gut flora
> 4. Neurons
> 5. Renal cells
> 6. White blood cells

So please use ages 1, 5, 10, 20, and 40, with the harmonic mean mass
between average males and females at those ages.

Gut flora is an interesting one.  It will be interesting to see if
this exposure rises to the level of immunocompromization indicating
antibiotics at the different ages.

Thank you again for considering this question.
