Steven, Björn, et al.

This Alfred Körblein is very well known in the German speaking antinuclear
Europe. I think this is enough said about this person!

         Here is an English link to Alfred Körblein: Childhood cancer near 
German nuclear power plants 
This was co-authored with an A. Hoffman.  The citation is Medicine & Global 
Survival, August 1999; Vol. 6:18-23.  At the end of the above link is a 
link to the full text in PDF.

         Korblein has also written a paper on "Perinatal mortality in West 
Germany following atmospheric nuclear weapons tests."  (Archives of 
Environmental Health Nov. 2004; 59(11):604-609).   This link 
<> will take you 
to what appears to be an abstract, with two graphs.  Within the apparent 
abstract is a link to the full text in PDF.

         Here is another link to the Perinatal mortality paper (in English) 
and not in PDF.  <>  AK 
invokes Sternglass, and cites to him, and to John Gould (for what that's 
worth).  According to a notation at the end of the paper, AK retired from 
the Munich Environmental Institute at the end of 2004.

         Here is what the IPPNW has to say about it 

         AK has written an article or a paper titled "Pregnancy outcome 
after the Chernobyl accident," however it is not currently available on his 
web site.
