Assessment Topic

This report evaluates major public health impacts of electric power generation and transmission associated with the nuclear fuel cycle and with coal use. Only existing technology is evaluated; for the nuclear cycle effects of future use of fuel reprocessing and long-term radioactive waste disposal are briefly considered. The health effects of concern are those leading to definable human disease and injury; subjective factors, effects of pollutants on visilibity, or effects on agriculture and aquatic life forms are outside the scope of this report.
