Scientific panel releases report: recommends pilot studies on cancer risks in six US states
The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) has released its report, recommending that pilot studies be conducted around the following nuclear power facilities:
Dresden, IL; Haddam Neck and Millstone, CT; Oyster Creek, NJ; Big Rock Point, MI; San Onofre, CA and Nuclear Fuel Services, a uranium fuel fabrication site in TN.
NAS examined four different types of epidemiological studies and has recommended the use of two types that the panel felt were feasible and, if done properly, scientifically defensible.
