jonesy16 writes: "Launched in 2007 by the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), the State-of-the-Art Reactor Consequence Analyses (SOARCA) research project showed that "a severe accident at a US nuclear power plant would not be likely to cause any immediate deaths, while the risks of fatal cancers caused by such an accident would be millions of times lower than the general risks of dying of cancer, a long-running research study has found." It's a pity that these studies aren't publicized as well as stories with negative viewpoints."
