The information is via the uranium information centre (run by a
Christian who is a friend and collegaue). However they have not
modified the original report. It is an information centre, not a PR

With respect to DU, the UIC also has links to the WHO's fact sheet on
the material (http://www.who.int/inf-fs/en/fact257.html) and a
statement by the Australasian radiation protection Society
