	It seems to me that if uranium was a genotoxin its effects would 
show up first in uranium miners and in uranium workers such as 
employees in gaseous diffusion plants.  (I am assuming that a 
genotoxin is a substance that would damage DNA and lead to birth defects.)

	Has an excessive amount of birth defects been found --- even 
anecdotally --- in uranium miners or workers?
