Subject: [CPEO-MEF] NAS says PAVE PAWS radar is safe
PAVE PAWS report: No harm 

Cape Cod Times (MA)
January 13, 2005

An independent report due to be released today by the National Academies
of Sciences concludes there is no link between an Air Force radar
station in Sagamore and elevated disease rates on the Upper Cape,
according to an official briefed on the investigation.

Citing the report, the official said even long-term exposure to the PAVE
PAWS radar station does not pose human health risks.

The $1 million report, which was requested by the Cape's legislative
delegation in 2001 and paid for by the Air Force, was embargoed for an
11:30 a.m. public release in Sandwich today. Air Force officials would
not comment yesterday on the contents of the report.

While the report will likely be contested by critics of the radar
facility, others call it a landmark moment in a decades-long debate over
the health effects of the powerful radar station.
