     NEW STUDY LINKS HIGH TRAFFIC STREETS TO CHILDHOOD CANCERS
     
     DENVER, Colorado, March 1, 2000 (ENS) - Children living near heavily 
     traveled streets or highways are at greater risk of developing cancer, 
     including childhood leukemia, a new study conducted in the rapidly 
     expanding Denver metropolitan area shows.
     
     The new study showed that homes adjacent to street corridors carrying 
     20,000 or more vehicles per day had roughly a six-fold increase in 
     risk for children contracting cancer, including childhood leukemia, 
     said  Wachtel, one of the researcher.
