The age-time patterns of excess cancer risk among A-bomb survivors followed up by the Radiation Effects Research Foundation inevitably carry implications regarding the mechanisms of radiation-related cancer. It has recently been found, quite surprisingly and in contrast to impressions given by the relative risks, that for most solid cancers the excess incidence rates themselves depend very little on age at exposure or time since exposure, but mainly on attained age. This paper investigates a… CONTINUE READING
