2006: Study finds Cape Radar not causing health problems

Millions spent in search for connections

Upper Cape residents have been told to put their concerns to rest about elevated cancer rates due to the radar pulses emitted by the Air Force's PAVE PAWS radar station. According to Albert Price, the chairman of the PAVE PAWS Public Health Steering Group, no connection between the radar emissions and health problems have been made.

This announcement comes after millions of dollars spent by the Air Force to search for such a connection. As no links have been found, the group also noted that there will be no need for any future large-scale studies.
