  1. Childhood cancer mortality and radon concentration in drinking water in North Carolina.

    Article - En anglais

    We explored the association between groundwater radon levels and childhood cancer mortality in North Carolina.

    Using data from two state-wide surveys of public drinking water supplies, counties were ranked according to average groundwater radon concentration.

    Age and sex-adjusted 1950-79 cancer death rates among children under age 15 were calculated for counties with high, medium, and low radon levels.
