You don't "defuse" it

Re: Depleted Uranium dangers (Richard Stover)

The half life of uranium 248 is 4.5 X 10^9 years making it only mildly radioactive (the longer the half-life, the less the radioactivity)

Given the amount of 238 we're talking about, It is nothing to worry about.

So instead of trying to "defuse" it (which of course you can't even if you wanted to) instead, you just ignore it, just like you are ignoring the background radation right now.

You are ignoring it, arn't you?
