Mortality statistics among atomic bomb survivors in hiroshima prefecture japan 1968 1972



Mortality statistics among atomic bomb survivors in hiroshima prefecture japan 1968 1972



Journal of Radiation Research 22(4): 456-471



In a comparative analysis of mortality among atomic bomb survivors and the non-exposed residents in Hiroshoma Prefecture, in addition to leukemia, malignant lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and cancers of the thyroid, breast, lung, esophagus, stomach, urinary organs and salivary gland cancer of the colon, larynx, accessory sinuses, uterus, ovary and testis, blood diseases, liver cirrhosis, hypertension and diabetes mellitus were elevated in the survivors; the risk of cerebrovascular disease, heart disease, peptic ulcer, gastroenteritis, senility and accidents was lower than the non-exposed residents. The relationship of atomic bomb exposure to the relative risk of cancers of the lung, breast, uterus and testis was readily explained, but the relationship between atomic bomb exposure and the relative risk of cancers of other sites, blood diseases and other causes of death was inconsistent. One reason why the risk of senility was low and the risk of blood diseases, malignant neoplasms, diabetes mellitus and hypertension was high was the higher diagnostic accuracy in atomic bomb survivors.
