Studies around UK nuclear installations suggest that it is possible that the incidence of leukaemia in young persons may be increased in the vicinity of such installations.
However, the results of these studies are inconsistent and the cause or causes of the apparent increases are unknown; they may be at least in part attributable to chance variations in incidence, to selection factors, or to variations in completeness of recording.
The cluster in Seascale, the village closest to the Sellafield reprocessing plant, may be the result of germ cell mutations in the fathers of the affected children.
