Other Epidemiological Surveys of Children of Atomic Bomb Survivors
The Radiation Effects Research Foundation has been conducting follow-up surveys to ascertain whether parents' radiation exposure increases their children's incidence rates of lifestyle-related diseases, which are multifactorial disorders. The Foundation has so far conducted a survey of childhood cancer and leukemia1, a survey of solid tumors2, and a survey of lifestyle-related diseases3, but none of them revealed specific radiation effects.
