The European Commission has issued (6th March 2001) an Opinion on DU from its anonymous "Article 31 group of experts".
We do not intend to address it directly, as it's the usual stuff, based on ICRP's bogus "average dose" modelling. But for some reason it does draw attention to the insanity of treating the Thoracic Lymph Nodes ( a critical organ for leukaemogenesis) as a region of the lungs. And they lay the blame where it belongs - on ICRP - see this link in our response to the MoD.
