Elevated thyroid cancer rates around Brunswick Nuclear Plant along the NC coastline

nc2

Average thyroid cancer rate(per 100,000 population) within a 80 km radius is ~ 16.0 vs the State average of 11.0

nc3

Red dots are potential public exposure areas to ionizing radiation generated from high voltage transmission lines (both electric field and electromagnetic field(UVc) are ionizing

nc4

Thyroid cancer cluster along NC coastline also positively correlates with the area of higher coastal annual precipitation.  High voltage transmission lines generate more ionizing radiation during precipitation events.

Refined Hypothesis:

Papillary thyroid cancer is positively correlated within 80 km of nuclear power plants in high precipitation areas due to the generation of increased ionizing radiation from high voltage transmission lines leaving the power plants.

Snow and ice buildup on insulators also increases corona discharge and I would expect a thyroid cancer rate increase due to ionizing radiation in cold climates also:

And the ionizing radiation is most likely increasing autism rates too.
