Dear members,

I am in need of clarification. Everything I've seen from the effects of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki detonations suggest that the initial burst of rad during the blast in the 3-km annulus around, but outside of, the blast zone caused the radiation-related cancers and deaths in the surviving cohort, and when I plot cancers, it is indeed linear with dose down to about 10 rem where it merges with background (Figure attached), but that fallout did nothing measurable. Is this correct? Is it because doses from fallout were so low?

Thank you,
