Fairewinds’ Arnie Gundersen, Nuclear Engineer: I’m coming up with something on the order a million cancers. We’re seeing that already [...] Kids were tested just in the last couple months and almost half of them had thyroid nodules [and cysts]. Normally about 1 to 2% of kids would have thyroid nodules. So we’re seeing an enormous increase in cancer precursor for thyroid cancers.
