Your wrong, alot of the designers spend large amounts of time with the DU, but you are correct about the analogy.
Yes, but on the field?
No but in the office. They use different types of unranium and radioactive material.

Who's more at risk, the X-ray technician or the patient?
Yeah, standing in a room under lab conditions is different than actually taking that ammo with you into the field.

Whos more at risk, nuclear physicist or technician?

Nobecause the round is incased in it's shell, while in the lab it's unprotected. The M1A2 SEP uses DU as armor and it hasn't effected any tank crewman.

No. The company that made Agent Orange knew of it's dangers as early as 1957, but neglected to notify the military.
