Cancer rates fall after closure of a Nuclear Reactor

Epidemiologists are reporting a decline in the incidence of cancer around the area of Sacramento, CA, after the closure of its local nuclear reactor.

Since the Rancho Seco nuclear reactor, located in Sacramento County, California, closed in 1989, there have been several thousand fewer cancer deaths in the region.

Results from the first long-term study to examine the impact of the closure of a nuclear reactor on health were published online March 27 in Biomedicine International.

This is scholarly article showing the epidemiological studies showing that closing of nuclear reactors improves the health of the community.  There does not have to be a “disaster” to cause damage in the community.
