In the early 60's during the fallout years, we did a study on strontium-90 
in hair.  As a result, it was difficult to draw any conclusions:  "Magno, P. 
j., E.J. Baratta, I.E. Leonard,  Strontium-90 in Human Hair, Vol. 12, pp 
1493-1496, Health Physics (March 1966)".  We did publish a paper on 
Strontium-90 in bones.  These results did show different uptakes, depending 
upon the age of the people (bones from deceased persons) studied:  "Baratta, 
E.J., E.S. Ferri and M.A. Wall, Strontium-90 in Human Bones in the United 
States, 1962-1966,  Vol. 11, No. 4, Radiological Health Data and Reports, 
USDHEW, PHS, EHS (April 1970"  The former Journal is still in publication, 
but the latter ceased to exist shortly after it was taken over by the USEPA. 
The only reason, I mention this is that there have been volumes of E-Mails 
on depleted and enriched Uranium and Strontium-90, as you stated without 
anything to back them up.

         A quick correction ---

         I have not read Busby's Fallujah paper --- the one about
hair samples, etc.  When I asked Busby if it had ever occurred to him
that some of us on RADSAFE had read his paper I was asking a
rhetorical question.  It should be obvious that some of us have read
it.  I have skimmed the Fallujah paper and have read some portions of
it however I have not read the entire thing.
