As a former employee of Lawrence Livermore Laboratories, Leuren Moret stumbled across information that was so disturbing that she quit her profession and became a whistleblower. Her subsequent research has shown the horrors of radiation exposure to soldiers of the Persian Gulf War and their future offspring. She has pointed to the sharp rises in diabetes and cancer in areas near nuclear facilities. Moreover, she says this problem, of epidemic proportion, is in each of our own backyards.
Currently, Leuren is helping to educate the governments and peoples of the world regarding the dangers of depleted uranium being used in the occupation of Iraq, and the very real possibility that this is a war crime. With graphic photographs and scientific facts, Leuren drives home the terrible effects of this kind of nuclear war in her presentations.
