Uranium is a highly toxic radioactive element. Depleted uranium contamination causes countless sicknesses ranging from severe skin rashes, headaches, muscle and joint pain to fatigue, infection, depression, cardiovascular disease, tumors, cancer and even birth defects. Uranium is so treacherous that it can destroy teeth and bones. Studies indicate that depleted uranium has been causing permanent disabilities and death for thousands of American veterans who served in the wars in the Middle East.
It is crucial to dispose of depleted uranium in a safe way. There are appropriate methods for the final disposal of high-level Continue Reading »
Fissionable materials and nuclear power may offer a very effective interim solution for meeting the needs of end-line consumers without doing further harm to the environment. This technology can offer the means to produce clean, cost-effective and abundant energy without the pollution, emissions or other issues that make more conventional fuel sources a liability. While issues related to waste-disposal and enhanced safety have cast doubt on nuclear power in recent years, the potential for this technology to solve the Continue Reading »
Depleted uranium exists as a controversial contender for a future source of energy in the United States. It is a byproduct of the processes used to produce nuclear power. Not technically considered to be radioactive waste, depleted uranium is currently undergoing tests to determine how viable it is as a usable energy source. It is created when the hexafluoride from uranium is extracted for use in the processes of nuclear fission. The depleted material can then be reprocessed for further use. Whether this re-appropriation can be Continue Reading »
