Beyond Nuclear - Radiation & Health What's New - Cancer panel to issue final report. Please give comments!

The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission requested that the National Academy of Sciences investigate the cancer risks around NRC licensed facilities. NAS started work in September, 2010, determining that this charge would be best handled by two phases of investigation with a report to follow each phase. Phase one, examining what methods would best be used for such a health assessment, will issue a report with recommendations in February 2012. Subsequent to this final report, there will be a two month public comment period. However, before the February report is released, NAS is encouraging continued public comments at If comments are made before the February report issue, there is a better chance that they may be considered in writing the report. Beyond Nuclear has provided the panel with formal written comments, highlighting vulnerability of children and our gene pool to radiation damage. We encourage you to read our comments and submit your own. For more information on the study background, timeline, or to view past public meetings, click here >
