PSR Helps Implement Study of Depleted Uranium

October 25, 2006

The Department of Defense Authorization bill, recently signed into law by the president, contains a provision directing the DOD to study the health effects of depleted uranium.  PSR was pleased to work with Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA) to pass this amendment to the bill.  McDermott also is a physician. 

For years PSR has joined those calling for the cessation of the use of depleted uranium in weaponry and other materials.  PSR Executive Director Mike McCally applauded the effort for more information about the health impacts of the highly toxic material and thanked Rep. McDermott for acknowledging PSR's role in the effort.  "Troops and others exposed to depleted uranium should not have to wander about potential health impacts, especially those that might show up without cause years later," added McCally.
