Depleted uranium

From Japan Today:

Abbas A-Ali Al-Malky, who is believed to have contracted leukemia from depleted uranium used in the Iraq war

Wait, they’re still on that?

Okay, this is getting irritating. Many intelligent people have rationally explained that depleted uranium is not dangerous. But so many people claim otherwise.

Is this going to be like the global warming debate?

I realize that we all like to try and find a reason for everything. Hell, I know better than anyone. Nobody has a clue why I got leukemia, and that is really annoying. But isn’t it wrong to use this child’s death to make a political point that is not supported by science?
