Although the health effects of occupational uranium exposure are well known, data regarding the long-term health effects of internalized depleted uranium has until now remained scattered in the literature. Depleted Uranium: Properties, Uses and Health Consequences provides toxicologists, biologists, environmental scientists and researchers, with a useful compilation of published literature that includes discussions of depleted uranium's chemical and radiological properties, as well as uses and monitoring. It also examines depleted uranium modeling, along with cellular, animal toxicology, human, and environmental studies, and comparisons of depleted uranium with other heavy metals.
