21st century and rapid urbanization that humankind has been experiencing brings certain drawbacks with it. One of these is the and new diseases. An obvious example of this is radiation.
It is well established that ionizing radiation is a risk factor for human cancer. Extreme risk was observed in bomb survivors from Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Similarly, those people, who have been exposed to radiation for medical reasons are under great risk for developing the disease. In the same way, any nuclear workers who are exposed to ionizing radiation doses over relatively short periods of time fall into this category.
Similarly, medical staff working with X- and gamma rays receive doses of radiation daily and therefore are in the risk category aswell. It is particularly dangerous if it continues for a long period of time, even if the single doses are relatively small.
Exposure to radiation can lead to various types of cancer, but research shows that the types of cancer that are caused by radiation and are fatal includes cancer of the pancreas and brain tumours.
