Cancer Risk Of Low Dose Ionizing Radiation: New Insights From Modern Biology Provoke More Questions And Challenges, Innovations-report
Excerpts: Thanks to the European project (...) has come to an end today, we now know more about the biological effects of low doses of ionizing radiation. Started in January 2004, the project carried out research to contribute to the improvement of the management of health risks attributable to low dose exposures (...). New evidence concerning the processes that drive radiation carcinogenesis has been obtained. Some evidence was given that high and low dose responses can differ, and that a range of dose response relationships exist for cancer relevant phenomena. (...) results (...) highlight the complexity of the biological response to radiation at different dose levels (...).
