Is there a risk of cancer related to Rocky Flats contamination?

Two reports we produced address the relationship of cancer incidence and radiological contamination from Rocky Flats:

One conclusion of the first study is that Standardized Mortality Ratios for production era workers (1951-1989) were significantly lower for all causes of death and all deaths with cancer as an underlying cause. A key finding of the second study was that, “communities in the general vicinity of Rocky Flats had cancer incidence during 1980-89 that was comparable to the remainder of the Denver Metro area.”
