Chernobyl infant leukaemia puts figure on risk error
Five countries have reported sharp post-Chernobyl increases in leukaemia in infants from birth to one year. ICRP risk factors predict only a minimal increase, so what's going on? NRPB calculated the dose in Wales and Scotland, allowing Green Audit to work out the error in the risk factors at between 100 and 500 - easily enough to account for Seascale and all the other clusters. Bomb-proof evidence against nuclear pollution published in the peer-reviewed literature. How will they get out of this one?
See how NRPB fails to ...
