Rudi Nussbaum presents at Canada Physicians for Global Survival conference
Rudi Nussbaum, Physics and Environmental Sciences emeritus faculty, gave an invited presentation, "Mysterious Excess of Childhood Leukemia Around 16 German Nuclear Reactors?" at the 2008 conference Prescriptions for Survival, sponsored by Physicians for Global Survival, the Canadian affiliate of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Sept. 25-57. In his presentation, he described a government-sponsored study that was expected to disprove claims of increased incidence of leukemia in children under the age of five, who live in the vicinity of nuclear power plants. To the consternation of the researchers and their sponsors, the study found an undisputed increase of childhood malignancies out to distances of about 30 miles.
