Safe to consume?
Jan 23, 2014
Hello I recently read an article on an hiv drug made from an uranium isotope derived from a palm plant species. I would like to know is it safe to ingest uranium in the body in the liquid form?
Response from Dr. Young
What you're reading about is a pure hoax from Jamaica. There is no published scientific literature on the use of uranium on treating HIV. Ingesting uranium is a bad idea- it's not only radioactive, it's a toxic metal that causes organ injury.
