To respond to the charge, the NRC subcommittee felt that it needed to go beyond the specific questions addressed to it by CDC and develop a broad understanding and critique of the HTDS and the Draft Final Report.

When the results of the study were announced I was astounded. This study does not affirm my experience with the thousands of Downwinders with whom I have spoken who call the Network to talk about their thyroid and other diseases.

The primary purpose of the study was to determine whether thyroid morbidity is increased among persons exposed to releases of radioactive iodine from the Hanford Nuclear Site between and The study was also designed to further determine in what way any increase in thyroid morbidity was related to the dose of radiation received (i.e Cited by:   The risk of thyroid disease resulting from prolonged environmental I exposure is poorly understood.

The ‘downwinders’ waited anxiously for the results of a federally funded Hanford Thyroid Disease Study (HTDS), hoping it would provide determining evidence. But the case, which seemed so clear to plaintiffs living in areas where most people seemed to be chronically ill, proved elusive. One of those witnesses, John D.

Boice, is an expert in cancer research who spent part of the day defending the government’s Hanford Thyroid Disease Study, which concluded there’s no way to.

Yet the Hanford Thyroid Disease Study did not find an association between the release of iodine during the s and s and an increase in.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center published thyroid disease study results in These centers could not find an association between Hanford’s past iodine releases and thyroid by:   Radiation Peril at Hanford Is Detailed.
