I'm 40% disabled (mainly PTSD) and in going through the process they discovered lesions on my liver and lungs. They claim its genetic, but in doing research on-line found that DU is first absorbed in your bones and liver. Was in the field the whole war and worked in "the pit" with loading Iraqi weapons, so had plenty of exposure. Wanted to know if anyone else has the same? Also have blackouts, memory loss, tingling in hands and feet and aching joints.

Sounds like much the same as many others ... The bromide tablets are the biggest suspect right now, but who knows.
