German study: Child cancer increases near nuclear power plants
by a gnostic

This one goes out to all the ill-advised but well-meaning environmentalists who have been thinking about the lesser of evils, nuclear power, to combat global warming: think again.

A German study has found that young children living near nuclear power plants have a significantly higher risk of developing leukemia and other forms of cancer, a German newspaper reported on Saturday.

"Our study confirmed that in Germany a connection has been observed between the distance of a domicile to the nearest nuclear power plant .... and the risk of developing cancer, such as leukemia, before the fifth birthday," Suddeutsche Zeitung newspaper quoted the report as saying.

The article goes on to mention that the study cited a 3-mile proximity being the problem... not so says other experts cited in the article:

The newspaper cited an unnamed radiation protection expert familiar with the study who said its conclusions understated the problem. He said the data showed there was an increased cancer risk for children living within 50 kilometers of a reactor.

you'll get lots of credibility citing reports from Kos about articles in left-wing German newspapers. I lose count, but would that be third- or fourth-hand?

well done.
