[ RadSafe ] Child cancer risk higher near nuclear plants: study

There is generally a reason why a "study" would be announced in vague
terms through a newspaper rather than with data and analysis through a
peer reviewed journal.  

Statistics, even if correctly gathered, do not prove causality.  If it
did, we could conclude that the changing number of salmon returning to
the Columbia River effected the number of sun spots that occurred four
years previously.  

What is needed is a model that is somewhat more involved than,
"Radiation done it."
