Tooth Fairy Project

I heard an interview with a university professor discussing cancer occurences in South Florida. He has been doing analyses of baby teeth for presence of radioactive isotopes such as Strontium 90. He made some really interesting observations based on his research that has become known as "The Tooth Fairy Project." He said that young children are much more succeptible to cancer caused by environmental influences than adults and as a result are like the canaries in coal mines that were indicators of low oxygen because they died before the miners were affected. The research indicates that cancer levels are 2 - 3 times higher than normal within 20 miles of a nuclear power plant. The radiation is distributed into the atmosphere and comes back to earth primarily as rain. Florida has a very rainy climate and so it drops back to earth fairly quickly around the plants. The most interesting thing to me was the suggestion by the professor that the number one thing that you can do to protect yourself from ingesting the radiation in your drinking water was to install a reverse osmosis water filtration system. Seems the isotopes are large enough that the RO membrane filters them out. He had a number of interesting observations that seemed really important to me. I found a link to a press release about his study which is at The South Florida Baby Teeth Study News Release. More information can be found at this site.
