Book Summary:

This report assesses the levels and effects of exposure to ionizing radiation. Scientific findings underpin radiation risk evaluation and international protection standards. This report comprises a report with two underpinning scientific annexes. The first annex recapitulates and clarifies the philosophy of science as well as the scientific knowledge for attributing observed health effects in individuals and populations to radiation exposure, and distinguishes between that and inferring risk to individuals and populations from an exposure. The second annex reviews the latest thinking and approaches to quantifying the uncertainties in assessments of risk from radiation exposure, and illustrates these approaches with application to examples that are highly pertinent to radiation protection.

UNSCEAR's scientific findings underpin radiation risk evaluation and international protection standards.

The second annex reviews the latest thinking and approaches to quantifying the uncertainties in assessments of risk from radiation exposure, and illustrates these approaches with application to examples that are highly pertinent to radiation protection. The report is a landmark publication in terms of our understanding of the confidence that can be attached to the attribution of health effects in individuals and populations, and to the estimation of risks inferred from exposure to ionizing radiation.

Book Summary:

This publication comprises a report to the General Assembly with two underpinning scientific annexes. The first annex provides an evaluation of selected health effects and inference of risk due to radiation exposure describing five scenarios for risk evaluation. The annex presents quantitative risk estimates based on major recent epidemiological studies and on the effects found among survivors of atomic bombings in Japan. The second annex evaluates lung cancer from exposure to radon and provides information to assess recent developments in risk estimates of lung cancer and radon exposure, and to convey an up-to-date picture of radon dosimetry and of dose conversion factors applied for dose assessment.

Book Summary:

The United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) assesses the levels and effects of exposure to ionizing radiation. UNSCEAR's scientific findings underpin radiation risk evaluation and international protection standards. The scientific annexes provide the supporting scientific rationale for UNSCEAR's 2017 report to the General Assembly. Annex A provides the principles and criteria for ensuring the quality of the Committee's reviews of epidemiological studies of radiation exposures, with a focus on the assessment of strengths and limitations of such studies. Annex B evaluates epidemiological studies analysing cancer risk on the basis of individual doses due to exposure to low dose rates from environmental sources, including key limitations of such studies (e.g. statistical power, dosimetric uncertainty and confounding).

Book Summary:

This report assesses the levels and effects of exposure to ionizing radiation. The scientific annexes provide the supporting scientific rationale for UNSCEAR's 2019 report. Annex A focuses on evaluation of selected health effects and inference of risk due to radiation exposure described in five scenarios for risk evaluation: 1) leukemia after medical computed tomography scans during childhood; 2) leukemia after occupational radiation exposure; 3) solid cancer after occupational exposure; 4) thyroid cancer after exposure during childhood or adolescence; and 5) circulatory diseases after acute radiation exposure. Quantitative risk estimates are presented based on epidemiological studies and on the effects found among survivors of atomic bombings in Japan. Annex B focuses on the evaluation of lung cancer from exposure to radon.

Book Summary:

This publication, the first of two volumes of scientific annexes, provides a detailed review of scientific material that underpins the Committee's evaluation of the radiation doses and effects due to the accident which occurred at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station on 11 March 2011. It covers the amount and composition of radioactive material released to the environment, the pattern of dispersion and deposition of the radioactive material over land and sea, the radiation doses received by the general public and workers, the radiation effects on the environment, the radioactivity in foodstuffs and the implications of the radiation exposures for human health and the environment. The evaluation uses information provided before the UNSCEAR 60th session (May 2013) by 26 United Nations Member States and 5 international organizations, as well as peer-reviewed literature.

Book Summary:

The second volume of the Scientific Committee's report adds five more annexes to the five in volume one. They cover DNA repair and mutagenesis; biological effects at low radiation doses; combined effects of radiation and other agents; epidemiological evaluation of radiation-induced cancer; and exposures and effects of the Chernobyl accident. Each ends with an impressive number of references. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR.

Book Summary:

The United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) assesses the levels and effects of exposure to ionizing radiation. UNSCEAR's scientific findings underpin radiation risk evaluation and international protection standards. This is the second of two parts of scientific annexes that provide the supporting scientific assessment for UNSCEAR's 2013 report to the General Assembly. This scientific annex on "effects of radiation exposure of children" provides a detailed review of scientific material that deals with special aspects of radiation dosimetry in children, cancer incidence after radiation exposure in childhood and the direct effects that occur after high doses (deterministic health effects). It examines the differences between the effects occurring after radiation exposure in childhood and those in adulthood.
