Of those 134, 28 firemen and employees died within months with another 14 radiation-induced cancer
deaths within the next 10 years.
Brenner, "A new view of radiation-induced cancer
," Radiation Protection Dosimetry, vol.
The cancer suppression mechanisms and their boosting by low-dose radiation are consistent with the previous conclusion by others (84-86) that the LNT risk model for radiation-induced cancer
has no scientific basis.
For the same regimen over the same period of 34 years, 136 woman-years would be lost per 100,000 women in the cohort due to radiation-induced cancer
, but 10,670 woman-years would be saved by earlier detection through screening.
from Low-Dose Exposure: An Independent Analysis.
Although it saves lives, screening also comes with various negative effects such as false-positive results, overdiagnosis and radiation-induced cancer
, but experts said their review builds on previous evidence which suggests the potential benefits of breast screening outweigh the risks.
In pediatric patients the risk of developing a new, radiation-induced cancer
later in life may be reduced.
Most notably, pediatric patients with scoliosis require frequent imaging sessions to monitor treatment progression, which can increase the risk of radiation-induced cancer
later in life.
Several factors seem to influence the risk of radiation-induced cancer
, such as total dose, young age at the time of irradiation, nature of irradiated tissue, and associated disease.
"Radiopharmaceuticals injected in a single BSGI or PEM study have a far higher potential for inducing fatal radiation-induced cancer
than X-ray-based mammography" (Morales, 2010).
And he's Max Da Costa, a factory worker on a ravaged Earth trying to reach one of her space station's Med-Pods to cure his radiation-induced cancer
