UNSCEAR 2020/2021 REPORT Vol. III

SOURCES, EFFECTS AND RISKS OF IONIZING RADIATION

United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation
UNSCEAR 2020/2021 Report to the General Assembly, with scientific annexes

This volume incudes the scientific annex C "Biological mechanisms relevant for the inference of cancer risks from low-dose and low-dose rate radiation", which provides the supporting scientific deliberations for the UNSCEAR 2020/2021 report to the General Assembly (A/76/46). This annex synthesizes the current knowledge on biological mechanisms of radiation actions at low doses and low-dose-rates, and assesses the implications for understanding the processes of cancer development after exposure to ionizing radiation, and for dose-response relationships of radiation-induced cancers.
