Childhood cancer incidence around UK nuclear sites

COMARE’s 10th report: reviews scientific evidence on the risk of cancer for children living close to UK nuclear installations.


COMARE 10th report


The aim of this, COMARE’s 10th report, is to review the earlier evidence and to present new data relating to childhood cancers around nuclear installations in Great Britain.

By doing this we have attempted to see if the claims of an excess of childhood cancer around some specific nuclear installations are a regular feature of the majority of the largest nuclear sites in Great Britain.
