Uranium in our "island"

Hi! Pinky here! Today we are in the computer sweet and we are talking about our "island' that we own. ( we are making up our own eco-friendly island).

Most uranium mining is very volume-intensive or in other words LOUD!!!! So the miners usually usethe method of uranium ming requires tunneling into the earth. It is called open pit mining.Uranium is a silvery-white substance and in the periodic table, it is the symbol "U". Uranuim is approximately 70% denser than lead. Uranuim is usually found in soil, rock and water. It is "extracted" from minerals like uraninite.

It is also weakly radioactive! AHHHH!
So is uranuim dangerous to us or not?

I have made the choice that it IS!!!!
