Does anyone have access to the journal "Environmental Health Perspectives"?
I really would appreciate a copy of this article.

Thank you.

New research using more sensitive testing found that only veterans who have
fragments of depleted-uranium shrapnel still embedded in their bodies tested
positive for chemicals indicating they have been poisoned.

The study, published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives,
included 1,769 urine samples from veterans and service members with a
history of exposure to depleted uranium, or DU. Only three — those with
embedded shrapnel — tested positive for DU exposure.
