Ionizing radiation is undoubtedly the most frequently used means of cancer treatment especially in the case of solid tumors like breast, prostate etc. Significant evidence suggests that long-term effects of radiation in patients who have undergone even successful treatment include high oxidative stress and inflammation in their blood and various tissues and the underestimation of the so called “non-targeted” effects. This chronic stress can lead in some cases to malignant transformation… CONTINUE READING
