New research is suggesting that there may be a link between thyroid cancer and Three Mile Island. Hershey scientists published the study in a medical journal this week. The researchers have been studying samples from thyroid cancer patients who lived near the facility at the time of the 1979 meltdown. They say the release of nuclear material may have led to the disease. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says previous studies have found no link, but the researchers say technology that was not available in the past was used for the new study.
