- For white males, substantial differences in death rates were
observed for the different facilities in the study (X-10, TEC, Y-12,
and K-25 ).
- Higher death rates were observed among those who worked only at
TEC or K-25 and among those who worked at more than one facility.
These death rates were higher than death rates among workers who
worked only at X-10 or Y-12. This overall difference was primarily
due to noncancer causes of death.
- Analysis of selected cancer causes for white males showed large
differences among the facilities for:
- lung cancer (increase for all facilities except X-10).
- leukemia (increase for X-10, and multiple facility workers;
decrease for Y-12).
- other lymphatic cancer (increase for Y-12; decrease for X-10).
