Re: Depleted Uranium dangers (Amaranth Rose)
I'm talking apples and you're talking oranges with a few bosc pears thrown in for good measure.
The original subject regard risk from exposure.
Yes, rose, you are correct. A curie is a curie is a curie.
It has nothing to do with risk unless you happen to want to go to bed with a whole heck of a lot of depleted uranium. To get a half a Ci, one would have to have over 1200 kilos of DU.
I tell you what rose, you go to bed with a kilo of plutonium 241 and i'll go to bed with a kilo of depleted uranium.
remember, 500 rems and Rose is room temp.
