63 Year Survival Of Hiroshima And Nagasaki Help Assess Current Long Term Radiation Effects In Japan

In order to understand what the long-term radiation-related effects might potentially be for residents in Japan today after the current nuclear accident, researchers report in Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness that a study of the long-term health of the atomic explosions of Nagasaki and Hiroshima could provide some insight.

The review article in this American Medical Association (AMA) journal examines risk estimates and explains what we have learned from the survivors 63 years later. The AMA informs that this article is open access.

The authors note:

"Approximately 40% of the A-bomb survivors, but about 80% of those exposed before age 20 years, are alive today."
