This news is based on the following article: Demoury C, Marquant F, Ielsch G, et al. Residential exposure to natural background radiation and risk of childhood acute leukemia in France, 1990-2009. Environ Health Perspect 2017; 125: 714-20. doi: 10.1289/EHP296

 

This large-scale study in mainland France does not support the hypothesis of a link between residential exposure to natural background radiation and the risk of childhood leukemia.
