I thought Doug Rokke had that honor. (:-)

Thank you for writing, Gary,

What in particular suggested an insufficient understanding of teratogenicity?
Do you remember that Steve Dapra has been holding out for years against the reality of uranyl teratogenicity? When he finally admitted he was wrong less than three months ago, he tried to suggest that uranyl acetate was different from the largest of the uranium combustion products, uranyl oxide, which is actually far more soluble.
We saw how studies in 1952 and 1953 showed that a single acute dose of a uranyl compound is a reproductive toxin. I believe that you have congratulated him in multiple messages up to his admission that he was in the wrong. Why would anyone approve of his position?
However, I recently found all 15 pages of Miller A.C. and McClain D.
(2007 Jan-Mar). "A review of depleted uranium biological effects: in vitro and in vivo studies". Rev Environ Health 22 (1): 75–89. It was the second most difficult medical paper I've ever obtained. The information from page 84 to the end of the paper is suburb.
Alexandria Miller is the U.S. armed forces' top uranium toxicity specialist. She is not allowed to speak to the press because of the damage that the people who have been telling us that uranium weapons are save has done to the veracity of the U.S. position on the topic.

What do you think my cause is? Some say I am trying to attack the offensive capability of the troops, but I say I am trying to improve their health. I was born on an Army base and I feel a strong bond with the health of the force. Towards those ends, it is obvious to me at least that exploring the details of uranyl teratology and neurotoxicity as well as carcinogenicity. Increasing the likelihood of reproductive health issues in military families makes it harder to recruit and for that and other reasons it's an attack on the military to have weapons that work off the battlefield. This is nothing new, it's been against international law for almost 90 years.
Are you suggesting that there is some other way to address the issue than to tell the truth about uranyl teratogenicity and neurotoxicity?

Hi James, thought you had faded out. Did you see a few days ago that I too had a pseudonym? I think I was Joe for about 45 minutes.
You can split hairs and say that John is technically not correct, and you would technically be right. But that won't change the fact that your usage of the term in previous messages reveals that you have a pretty superficial understanding of it.
Several people have hinted to
you or stated outright that DU as a teratogen is not very helpful to your cause. You would do well to pay more attention to those messages.
However, I am enjoying your "Is TOO!" line of argument, so feel free to ignore me and stick with that if you want.

That is false. Teratogens can cause heritable defects.
