Vatican Radio is Told to Pay Out Over Transmitter Cancer Risk

The Supreme Court of Italy has ordered Vatican Radio to compensate Cesano, a small town near Rome, following allegations the broadcaster's high-powered transmitters put children at a higher risk of cancer.

Reports emerged in 2001 that electromagnetic radiation produced by Vatican Radio's transmitters near the town was above the legal limit. A health authority released a study claiming that children in the area were six times more likely to develop leukemia.

The Independent reports:

“Vatican Radio said it was disappointed by the ruling.”
