Doctor, the Depleted Uranium, and the Dying Children, The

“Uranium shells contain depleted uranium, a byproduct of nuclear power production. Nuclear waste is radioactive. It has to be stored in special containers and it needs to be guarded and that cost money; a great deal of money when there is hundreds of thousands of tons to dispose of. So the nuclear industry was delighted when the industry showed interested in its’ cheap uranium byproduct.”

An award winning documentary film produced for German television by Freider Wagner and Valentin Thurn. The film exposes the use and impact of radioactive weapons during the current war against Iraq. The story is told by citizens of many nations. It opens with comments by two British veterans, Kenny Duncan and Jenny Moore, describing their exposure to radioactive, so-called depleted uranium (DU), weapons and the congenital abnormalities of their children. Dr. Siegwart-Horst Gunther, a former colleague of Albert Schweitzer, and Tedd Weyman of the Uranium Medical Research Center (UMRC) traveled to Iraq, from Germany and Canada respectively, to assess uranium contamination in Iraq.
