On 18 October, Inserm published a press release which underlines the link between the risk of paediatric leukaemia and living near vineyards. The article is based on the results of an Inserm study conducted by CRESS researchers, in collaboration with Santé Publique France.

The results show that “the risk of leukaemia does not increase with the mere presence of vines within 1000 m of the address of residence. However, it does show a slight increase in this risk as a function of the total surface area of vines present within this perimeter.”

All the results are described in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives.
