Let's base our views on the real facts
by Gordon Warren
I'm not sure what 'recent statistics' Harry Pendlebury is referring to. Perhaps he could give us the details, or maybe someone else has recent figures.
My impression of previous studies has always been that they are inconclusive. Cancer 'clusters' have been observed near some nuclear plants but they have been found elsewhere too.
Statistics need to be interpreted very carefully e.g. if the incidence of a particular cancer is typically 1/1000 of the population then one additional case results in a 100% increase!
I wouldn't dismiss such concerns lightly but let's look at the facts carefully before we discard all the benefits that Wylfa B can bring to Anglesey.
