Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

In principle, it should be possible to determine the Chernobyl risk factor by conducting enough (and large enough) epidemiological studies on the relevant populations.

In practise, it would be very expensive, and require high-quality individual-level medical data from Ukraine and the Soviet Union. Between the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the sorry state of Ukraine today, I doubt that those records exist today. If they ever did.
