Abstract

An incidence study, completed in 1990, revealed a significantly increased incidence of leukaemias in the near vicinity of a hazardous waste dump. Linear regression of community incidence rates with community distance to the hazardous waste site showed negative coefficients for leukaemias and malignant lymphoma.
