The UK is sending uranium-tipped weapons to Ukraine in a move that will contaminate that food growing area for many thousands of years. Our enemy has responded by stating that, ‘if they send uranium to us, we will send uranium back to them’.

When our allies sent depleted uranium to Fallujah in 2003, the consequence was that some women’s babies were born with two heads, other babies had their legs fused together like mermaids’ tails, yet others were covered in ‘snakeskin’, some had blood cancer and many had invisible neurological disorders and problems with their internal organs. It seems that much of the food grown in that vast breadbasket will become contaminated for thousands of years to come and one would obviously expect to see similar birth defects, in European babies, whose mothers eat depleted uranium contaminated food. Remember that food label: ‘product of various countries’.
