Excerpt
Excerpt: Besides cigarette smoking, ionizing radiation is probably the most intensively studied environmental agent with regard to adverse effects on human health. The large body of information from the prospective study of A-bomb survivors in Hiroshima and Nagasaki and data from several studies of the medical diagnostic and therapeutic use of ionizing radiation provide us with a great deal of human exposure data. The A-bomb survivor group represents the largest single study, with well over 120,000 individuals who have been followed prospectively since 1950. Much of our collective knowledge of radiation health effects in man has been based on this study. This particular effort in turn serves as a model for other environmental agents and suggests important issues that we must address.
