Questions About Health

Have the health effects of living with low-level radioactive wastes been studied? What are the results?

Answer:

A number of studies of Port Hope, Ontario - a community with "historic" low-level radioactive waste - have been conducted. In 2000, a Health Canada Study found that the overall cancer rates in Port Hope are comparable to rates throughout the province of Ontario.
