Summary
There is a very large fund of accumulated knowledge concerning the effects of low doses of radiation on human health. Yet, the information available is not very useful in its crude, unintegrated form. A major goal of this book is to present and analyze the evidence concerning effects of low doses of radiation upon humans, and to demonstrate that a systematic and consistent evaluations of the evidence is now possible, with very useful practical results

Introduction to radiation and human health -- Energy interchanges and health -- Origins of human cancer : implications for radiation causation -- Induction of cancer and leukemia by ionizing radiation -- Systmatic approach to the quantitative aspects of radiation carcinogenesis, with personal and public-health risk estimates -- Human epidemiological evidence concerning radiation carcinogenesis : the studies involving external exposure -- Induction of human breast cancer by ionizing radiation -- From peak percents to whole-body cancer doses, by age at irradiation -- Practical applications of the whole-body cancer dose -- Partial-body irradiation and cancer doses for specific kinds of cancers -- Evidence for a linear or supralinear dose-effect relationship and for the nonexistence of a "threshold" dose -- Handling the internal emitters : dosimetry and applications -- Internal alpha-particle emitters : radium and radon-daughters -- Biologically important, man-made alpha-particle-emitting nuclides : plutonium and other transuranics -- Lung cancers already produced by plutonium inhalation -- Plutonium-induced lung cancers in a plutonium energy economy -- Likely radiation doses and their effects in a nuclear-power economy -- Ionizing-radiation exposures from natural sources, consumer products, and particular occupations -- Ionizing-radiation exposures from medical diagnostic and therapeutic irradiation -- Induction of human leukemia by ionizing radiation -- Congenital (in utero, teratogenic) effects of ionizing radiation -- Genetic and chromosomal effects of ionizing radiation
