IONIZING RADIATION AND CANCER

Ionizing radiation is the main variable Cancer Query Calculator models analyze. Ionizing radiation has experimented an unusual historical exponential growth trend in the last decades, making the increase of environmental Ionizing radiation more noticeable in the beginning of the XXI century.

Increased ionizing radiation in the environment has a direct impact in world cancer incidence. Children, young people and women are more susceptible to cancer incidence due to ionizing radiation increases.

The evolution of ionizing radiation is a relevant variable for the study of cancer incidence.

There is no research on how to mitigate ionizing radiation increases and most of the growth is due to the growing presence of radioactive isotopes derived from the nuclear industry in the environment drives .

Increased sterility, increased heart attacks in young adults, increased cancer cases in young adults, hair loss, nausea, sleeping pronblems, increase cancer cases in children, cognitive and bone development problems for children are some of the many health implications of increased ionizing radiation in the environment.
