1) Risk of childhood acute leukemia around French nuclear power plants (NPPs). case–control study, included 2,753 cases and 30,000 controls.odds ratio (OR) of 1.9 http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/ijc.27425/full#.T0-UJqjsvmY.facebook
2)"thyroid cancers detected in children after the Chernobyl accident were likely to have been caused by direct external or internal exposure to short-lived radioactive fallout, such as 131I (half-life 8·04 days) and 133I (20·8 hours)."
Children exposed to the Chernobyl accident at a young age—up to 10 years—are at high risk for thyroid cancer.

      Why mess with something that's risky, a health hazard, costs the earth and does produce energy for that long, but remains toxic for hundreds of thousands of years - when solar eg doesn't cost or pollute the earth and will never run out?

      Because either we will stop soon nuclear madness - or nuclear energy will end the human race. This statement is proven by Hiroshima, Chernobyl , Fukushima.....

      BUT there is a way out with solar and windenergy - we just have to use them more intensive:).

      YES WE CAN live in a Solar World:)

      Nuclear power plants are not 100% safe. Very large areas are polluted with radioactive fallout for a very long time in the case of a nuclear catastrophe. Where to put waste, which radiates for many thousand years? Therefore we must invest in the most clean energies like the sun, wind or water. Thank you.
