WHO's European Healthy Cities Network: 'striving for health'...

On 24.5.2011 WHO's European Healthy Cities Network said that it had hit a Phase V milestone because 90 cities designated in Phase V of Healthy Cities. The cities of Galway in Ireland and Istanbul and Trabzon in Turkey were congratulated because they joined other cities working toward the common goal of striving for health and healthy equity in all local policies.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is the directing and coordinating authority for health within the United Nations.

The Libyan cities were now 5.000 times bombed with uranium-bombs. NATO used therefore a mandate of the United Nations...

Internalized Depleted Uranium (DU) can cause kidney damage, cancers of the lung and bone, skin disorders, neurocognitive disorders, chromosome damage, immune deficiency syndromes and rare kidney and bowel diseases. Pregnant women exposed to DU may give birth to infants with genetic defects. Once the dust has vaporized, don’t expect the problem to go away soon. As an alpha particle emitter, DU has a half life of 4.5 billion years.

WHO: behaviour of Depleted Uranium in the body is identical to that of natural uranium

Libya: uranium bombs – Amnesty International

Yesterday, someone of Amnesty International was talking on TV about the violation of human rights in Syria. But Amnesty International says nothing about the destruction of Libya with an UN-mandate whereby Libyan civilians are bombed with uranium bombs. There were already 5.000 bombings now and also members of the future Libyan generations will die as a result of the depleted uranium in the bombs. The western ‘free’ en ‘democratic’ world does not talk about these war crimes.

NATO war crimes with an UN-mandate: 5.000 uranium bombs

NATO is actually destroying Libya and kills Libyan civilians with an UN-mandate.

There were more than 5.000 bombings now and all the bombs contained Depleted Uranium (DU).

The UN knows the dangers of Depleted Uranium.  In February 2000, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), said that the pollution with Depleted Uranium detected at four environmental hot spots in Kosovo, Serbia and Montenegro, was serious and posed a threat to human health.  UNEP started projects about the needs for humanitarian assistance and an environmental clean-up in Kosovo, Serbia and Montenegro.
While UNEP was called a 'reference in the scientific community regarding the impacts of DU when used in a conflict situation', UN allows the further destruction of Libya with uranium bombs.

Cities in Iraq where Depleted Uranium (DU) weapons were heavily used, such as Basra, Samara, Baghdad, Mosul and probably especially Fallujah, which was virtually leveled in a November 2004 Marine assault, are showing high rates of birth defects, many of which, along with unusually high rates of leukemia, medical experts say are emblematic of fetal radiation damage.

A University of Michigan peer-reviewed study of births in Fallujah (Iraq) published in December 2010 found that of 547 births in Fallujah General Hospital in May of 2010, six years after the all-out US assault on that city of 300,000, in which DU weapons were reportedly used widely, 15% of babies had birth defects–a rate more than five times higher than the global average of 2-3%.
