You can obtain copies of all reports on IAEA wbsite:


Here is the news update on the site:

"A total of up to four thousand people could eventually die of 
radiation exposure from the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident 
nearly 20 years ago, an international team of more than 100 
scientists has concluded. The new numbers are presented in a landmark 
digest report, "Chernobyl's Legacy: Health, Environmental and Socio-
Economic Impacts," just released by the Chernobyl Forum."

Note, up to 4,000 COULD eventually die. They haven't yet, and the 
40,000 quoted in reports similar to Norm's posting is simply pure 
fantasy, meant to eliminate the nuclear option. I venture to 
speculate that if there were no nuclear power, far more than 40,000 
would die due to lack of electricity. Guess they could consider those
