A study of residents living near the Three Mile Island nuclear plant found no evidence of increased cancer as a result of the 1979 accident that released radioactive gas, Pennsylvania health officials said. However, officials added that radiation-caused cancers can take as long as 20 years to develop and promised that health studies will continue in the area southeast of Harrisburg. Authorities said follow-up reports will be issued.
