Why any depleted uranium in Hawaii is too much
by Larry Geller
“Their projected time frame after exposure is 10 – 20 years before symptoms appear. But that is far from the truth, as soldiers lay ravaged in VA hospitals across the U. S. — or their family’s, kneeling at the foot of a needless grave, know all too well. Privy to the VA data since 2003, the DoD is familiar with their diagnosis of an uncontrollable wildfire of rare cancer, appearing four to 36 months after exposure.”
Outside the window last week the air looked thick, more like Tokyo than Honolulu. It was the vog, blowing in from the Big Island.
Stuff moves around, blows around, comes around.
So would depleted uranium if dislodged during military weapons testing in Hawaii or even during improper cleanup operations. It wouldn’t look like vog, though, you wouldn’t see it coming.
The quotation above is from Veterans Today, Military Veterans and Foreign Affairs Journal, not from some lefty advocacy group. Check out the article.
News about DU in Hawaii will remain largely disappeared. You’ll have to google for it. Try a blog search also. After you do that, remember that there are advocates defending your health who also need your support in their efforts.
Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean you won’t breathe it.
