Regardless of what the other review says about the cancer cluster, it should be taken into consideration by anyone thinking of moving here. The expected rate of incidence of ALL at the time of the cluster was approximately 3 cases per every 100,000 children per year. According to US Census2000 data Fallon, Nevada is home to 2,383 children. The rate of incidence of ALL in Fallon, Nevada is roughly 50 times what is expected according to SEER data. The Fallon, Nevada childhood leukemia cluster is no less than the 3rd officially recognized cancer cluster to strike Fallon since 1961; an adult leukemia cluster in 1960-61 which killed 13 adults, and an adult brain cancer cluster in the mid-to-late 1980's which killed 8 people. Has anything occurred recently? Not that I know of. Thank goodness. That said, Fallon is amazing especially if you dislike humidity but, I do believe that anyone willing to research a place before moving would probably like to be informed of Fallon's past.
