Impacts of Human Health from the Coal and Nuclear Fuel Cycles and Other Technologies Associated with Electric Power Operation and Transmission.
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.
