Analysis Of The C-10
Research & Education Foundation Dataset
This research project
represents a cooperative effort between the C-10 Research & Education
Foundation and Plymouth State University's Judd Gregg Meteorology
Institute. The analysis suggests that emissions from the Seabrook
nuclear power plant hit populated areas in New Hampshire and
Massachusetts under certain meteorological conditions. This means
that continued surveillance is warranted and may inform future health

Numerous reports document elevated cancer rates among children living near nuclear facilities in various nations. Little research has examined U.S. rates near the nation's 103 operating reactors. This study determined that cancer incidence for children < 10 yr of age who live within 30 mi (48 km) of each of 14 nuclear plants in the eastern United States (49 counties with a population > 16.8 million) exceeds the national average. The excess 12.4% risk suggests that 1 in 9 cancers among children who reside near nuclear reactors is linked to radioactive emissions. If cancer incidence in 5 western states is used as a baseline, the ratio is closer to 1 in 5. Incidence is particularly elevated for leukemia. Childhood cancer mortality exceeds the national average in 7 of the 14 study areas. Read more about elevated childhood cancer
