Abstract
The report initially discusses the physical properties of depleted uranium and the uses of this material. Weapons applications are presented in detail. This is followed by an extensive discussion of possible health effects due to exposure to depleted uranium. In conclusion, no effects due to either depleted or natural uranium have been observed in the human body. Precausionary measures are recommended at sites where depleted uranium ammunition has been used. No adverse health effects due to depleted uranium are expected among the population at large or the soldiers in general in the Kosovo province in Yugoslavia, but some individuals may have been exposed to larger amounts of depleted uranium than the recommended limits.
