Fund cancer studies
One hour of research
Until recently, very few studies have been done on cancer near U.S. nuclear reactors. RPHP has already done 23 studies published in medical journals, finding that local cancer rates are high near reactors, but decline when reactors close down. More studies are important at this time, as 32 new reactors have been proposed.
The gift will provide support for expert researchers to spend the time assembling data and creating reports and articles on cancer near nuclear reactors. It will also go towards educating the public on the problem, through press conferences, web site postings, TV/radio stories, and newspaper op-eds.
