Cancer rates in relationship to the geographic locations of nuclear power lpants

I am very interested in the corralation between Nuclear Power Plants and all forms of cancer give Strontium 90 is an output source of radiation from the reactors steam vents. Here in Sacramento Calif we had Ranco Seco. Up wind from here, the cloud traveled to the Sierra foothills then to the Sierra Nevada mountains then into the state of Nevada. Cancer increased in all areas alike around these power plants I am told. "The Tooth Faire project" had been collecting date on this subject by way of testing baby teeth as the radiation was stored in the calcium in the teeth and was a good record of radiation exposure. You will find this information by the internet site by that same name. Do you know of this information or simply how to show the locations of the power plants and the numbers of cancer that have occured in geographic areas and cross reference them and see what the number end up as? Going beyond Radiation exposure, is there data to show cancer stats by geographic areas alone?

    This data is very important to everyone. We live quite often by what we can see in front of us.

  • How come those people advocating alternative energy, especially solar, wind, etc. ignore the consequences because of the questionable wisdom of environmentalism when they oppose nuclear energy and other conventional energy sources?

    While I think it is very important to look at the impact of radiation on public health and the environment, the problems with alternative energy sources are very complex, questionable and ideologically motivated from a broad perspective - especially with regards to costs, excessive politicking, public policy impacts, etc.

    Ordinary people, such as me, must understand the complexities of international politics (and ideology) of enviromentalism right into the minds and hearts among us. A balanced debate is neccessary to challenge the depressingly narcissitic, utterly romantic and distressingly manipulative notion of environmentalism.

    Better think about it - and speak the whole truth before the situation gets worse. Thank you.
