Good Article On NAS Study Of Radiation Around Nuke Plants

The National Academy of Science (NAS) was asked by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to take a look at the feasibility of studying cancer risks around nuclear plants.  They did so and published their findings.

This article summarizes those findings and highlights the difficulties with pursuing such a study.  The NRC Commissioners will vote on whether or not to pursue the pilot study or any other approach later this year.
