[ RadSafe ] Concerning Radiation Carcinogenesis

Dear Prof. Raabe,
   Thank you for your Letter in Health Physics.  I wonder what would be the carcinogenic effect (in adults) of receiving on the average about 5 cGy radiation dose to the whole body during the period of about 10 years, more or less at a uniform rate.  Can you please give a ballpark figure on the percentage increase in cancers using your model for such a situation?  Thanks.
  With best regards,

My one page letter cogently describing the nature of ionizing radiation carcinogenesis is on page 571 in the December 2014 issue of Health Physics  Vol. 107.

If you want a copy e-mail me with a request.
