A study of humans exposed to uranium showed the skeleton to be the primary long term depot site for ingested uranium and all but the most insoluble forms of the element.

Nuclear weapon   Principles of atomic fission weapons

Principles of atomic fission weapons The fission process. When bombarded by neutrons, certain isotopes of uranium and plutonium and some other heavier elements will split into atoms of lighter elements, a process known as nuclear fission.In addition to this formation of lighter atoms, on average between 2.5 and 3 free neutrons are emitted in the fission process,

Uranium processing  Britannica

Uranium processing, preparation of the ore for use in various products.. Uranium U, although very dense 19.1 grams per cubic centimetre, is a relatively weak, nonrefractory metal. Indeed, the metallic properties of uranium appear to be intermediate between those of silver and other true metals and those of the nonmetallic elements, so that it is not valued for structural
