UNSCEAR 2020/2021 Report Volume III

SOURCES, EFFECTS AND RISKS OF IONIZING RADIATION

The UNSCEAR 2020/2021 Report Volume III scientific annex C: Biological mechanisms relevant for the inference of cancer risks from low-dose and low-dose-rate radiation.

Scientific Annex C: Biological mechanisms relevant for the inference of cancer risks from low-dose and low-dose-rate radiation

This volume includes 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.
