         This link is to the first part of a two-part MSNBC article about 
power reactor waste storage.  At the end of part one is a link to part 
two.  http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22755853/

         A couple of quotes from the article:

"Workers at this waste treatment and storage site on France's Cherbourg 
peninsula, run by industry giant Areva, don't see a problem."

"Greenpeace questions state-run Areva's safety figures, and accuses the 
government of playing down accidents and soil and water contamination. A 
group called Meres en Colere, or Angry Mothers, was formed in the region 
after a 1997 study showed higher than usual local rates of child leukemia, 
a malady linked to radiation exposure."

         Here is a link to what the NCI has to say about the causes of 
leukemia:  http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/wyntk/leukemia/page6
