I think that is really a first rate experiment demonstration the bystander effect in vivo.
As a side note, scatter radiation is NOT associated with the response observed.  Once again, Dr. Long, it is important to READ the literature, unless jumping to conclusions is the only exercise you get.

It is also a good rule not to put overmuch confidence in the observational results that are put forward until they are confirmed by theory.
