Conclusion from Abstract: “Conclusions-During 1963-83 and 1984-90 the
incidence of malignant disease, particularly lymphoid
leukaemia and non-Hodgkin lymphomas, in
young people aged 0-24 in Seascale was higher than
would be expected on the basis of either national
rates or those for the surrounding areas. Although
this increased risk is unlikely to be due to chance, the
reasons for it are still unknown.” end quote. source as above.
