An independent health study has revealed that there is no strong evidence for a link between total radiation exposure and cancers among workers at Rössing Uranium mine. According to the Economist, the study conducted by the University of Manchester research team focussed on lung cancer, cancers of other parts of the airways, leukemia, kidney cancer and the brain. Johan Coetzee, Managing Director of Rössing is quoted as saying that “The analysis showed that there is no strong evidence that total radiation exposure, or other exposures at the Rössing mine, have caused an increased risk of cancers in the workforce”.
