VETERANS: WERE YOU POISONED BY URANIUM DURING
YOUR MILITARY SERVICE?

 If you were deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan
 or the Balkans, where DEPLETED URANIUM (DU) munitions
  were used, the answer may be YES.

          IF SO, YOU SHOULD BE TESTED

DU munitions are made from toxic, radioactive heavy metal that  burns on impact producing an ultra-fine DUst that moves with the wind. This invisible DUst can slowly cause cancer, birth defects and other diseases implicated in Gulf War Syndrome.

SHOULD YOU TRUST YOUR GOVERNMENT TO TAKE CARE OF YOU WHEN THEY HAVE:

• FAILED TO PROVIDE PRE-DEPLOYMENT DU SAFETY TRAINING?
• FAILED TO DESCRIBE URANIUM EXPOSURE SCENARIOS?
• FAILED TO REVEAL WHERE & HOW MUCH URANIUM WAS USED?
• FAILED TO COMPLY WITH DU TESTING REQUIREMENTS?
• FAILED TO USE THE BEST TEST TO DETERMINE EXPOSURE TO DU?
• FAILED TO TELL YOU ABOUT KNOWN HAZARDS OF INHALED DU?
