Radiation exposure and breast cancer lessons from chernobyl free
The lessons learned from the Chernobyl disaster have become increasingly important after the second anniversary of the Fukushima, Japan nuclear accident. Historically, data from the Chernobyl reactor accident 27 years ago demonstrated a strong correlation with thyroid cancer, but data on the radiation effects of Chernobyl on breast cancer incidence have remained inconclusive.
The areas around Chernobyl are iodine deficient. The thyroid becomes larger in iodine deficiency states and a larger gland results in increased radiation exposure. The death rate from cancers at 20 years postexposure is said to be 5. There is nonthyroid disease related to radiation. There have been reports of breast cancer increases in
Radiation carcinogenesis: Lessons from Chernobyl incidence and a possible radiationrelated increase in breast cancer, but as yet there is no general increase in malignancies. exposure to
Reanalyzing the data reveals that the incidence of breast cancer in women could be higher than previously thought. We have learned little of the consequences of radiation exposure at Chernobyl except for its effects on thyroid cancer incidence.
How Many Cancers Did Chernobyl Really Cause? Updated Version. the possible increase in cancer mortality due to this radiation exposure might be up to a few percent. This might eventually represent up to four thousand fatal cancers in addition to the approximately 100 000 fatal cancers to be expected due to all other causes in this
Jan 12, 2018 A new study led by a University at Albany professor has found a potential link between a cluster of cancer diagnoses in New York City and the 1986 Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster.
