This article by Robert Alvarez, published by the Federation of American Scientists is a great read. It will give you some great information on uranium mining and its horrific history. Here's just one section...

The miners were never warned of the hazards of radioactivity in the mines in which they inhaled, ingested and brought home along with their contaminated clothing. Withholding information about the hazards of the workplace was deeply embedded in the bureaucratic culture of the nuclear weapons program. In 1994, a previously secret document (written in the late 1940s) was made public by the Department of Energy which crystallized the long-held rationale for keeping nuclear workers in the dark.

“We can see the possibility of a shattering effect on the morale of the employees if they become aware that there was substantial reason to question the standards of safety under which they are working. In the hands of labor unions the results of this study would add substance to demands for extra-hazardous pay . . . knowledge of the results of this study might increase the number of claims of occupational injury due to radiation.

Although HOT WATER doesn't address the issue of nuclear weapons, the use of uranium in those weapons, and now in what is called 'depleted uranium' weapons is a serious issue. Reusing these radioactive materials for any purpose is gruesome and unacceptable in our opinion, but here you'll get some information that we hope will help you form your own.
