Radar gets all clear

Cape Cod Times (MA)
October 14, 2005

An epidemiological study has found "no convincing evidence" that pulsed radar waves emitted by the PAVE PAWS radar facility cause adverse health effects.

More specifically, the study found that among those exposed to the radar there was no evidence of increased death rates for certain cancers, such as lung cancer in women and leukemia.

The $450,000 study by the International Epidemiological Institute was the final piece in a series of four studies paid for by the Air Force and led by public health officials to determine whether the radar facility on the Massachusetts Military Reservation was in part to blame for some cancers on the Upper Cape.
