Cancer in populations living near nuclear facilities : a survey of mortality nationwide and incidence in two states.
Over 900000 cancer deaths occurred from 1950 through 1984 in 170 counties with or near nuclear installations.
Each study county was matched for comparison to three « control counties » in the same region.
There were 1.8 million cancer deaths in the 292 control counties during the 35 years studied.
Deaths due to leukemia or other cancers were not more frequent in the study counties than in the control counties.
