[ RadSafe ] Radiation may increase OR DECREASE breast-cancer risk in young women

According to the article, mammograms would increase breast cancer only in a subgroup of young women: those who carry a BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation. Since these mutations make a woman more susceptible to develop breast cancer, it seems quite logical that these same cells would be less resistant to radiation. Maybe their DNA repair mechanisms are less efficient.

How Much Radiation?!!
Hormesis, stimulation of body defenses, clearly LESSENS the risk of cance in low dose, as shown in experiments of Feinendigan, Pollycove, Scott and others!
Even in the bomb studies, Breast cancer was LESS THAN EXPECTED at under 10 Rads.
