Abstract : Incomplete tracer studies with product indicate that less than 0.05% of this element is absorbed from the digestive tract in any of the three valence states. The behaviour of plus 4 product following intramuscular and intrapulmonary administration is very similar to that of zirconium. The metabolic properties of plus 3 and plus 6 product are very similar to those of yttrium and plus 3 pre product.

Hamilton, under contract, was engaged by the Health Division of the Manhattan Projoect to determine “Radiations effective against the Enemy”. This emerged after a directive by Compton of the Chicago Met Lab to Stone under Scope 3 of the Health Division activities.
The propaganda is that the Health Division was merely engaged in protecting workers, (a task at it which it utterly failed). In actual fact, Scope 3 shows the Health Division was in fact also engaged in the prediction of fallout effedts from both nuclear fission bombs and radiological weapons, The decision to use radiological weapons if the atomic bomb failed to work was taken in 1942 on the suggestion of E.O. Lawrence, who suggested the first nuclear reactor could produce “violently radioactive substances” for use in such weapons quite easily.
And so plans were made to explode in effect pulverised fuel rods (slugs as they were called at the time) upon the enemy.
in the event of course, the bombs worked.
As the world moved into the “nuclear age”, more and more people have been “slugged”.
