Childhood Leukemia and Cancers Near German Nuclear Reactors: Significance, Context, and Ramifications of Recent Studies
Rudi H. Nussbaum

Abstract

A government-sponsored study of childhood cancer in
the proximity of German nuclear power plants
(German acronym KiKK) found that children < 5 years
living 5 km.
The researchers concluded that since “this result was
not to be expected under current radiation-epidemiological
knowledge” and confounders could not be
identified, the observed association of leukemia incidence
with residential proximity to nuclear plants
“remains unexplained.” This unjustified conclusion
illustrates the dissonance between evidence and
assumptions. There exist serious flaws and gaps in the
knowledge on which accepted models for population
exposure and radiation risk are based. Studies with
results contradictory to those of KiKK lack statistical
power to invalidate its findings. The KiKK study’s ramifications
add to the urgency for a public policy debate
regarding the health impact of nuclear power generation.

Funny how nuclear industry labels anyone who disagrees with it a
lunatic extremist. In the 1950-1980s, they used to label such
people communists. That won’t work anyone, so they had to
pick a new bully term. The people they called communists in 1971
warned that the ECCS would not work. The Chair of the AEC none the
less called for a technical fix that never came. It became so bent
that the USA abolished it, but the USA did not urge the nuclear markets the
AEC created and puppet mastered to do the same.

One end result is Fukushima. This is what happens when the trainees of bombardiers are put in charge in of public health
