The fact that ionizing radiation is a uniquely potent mutagen, and the finding that radiation from medical procedures is a major cause of both Cancer and Ischemic Heart Disease, clearly indicate that it would be appropriate in medicine to treat dosage of ionizing radiation at least as carefully as we treat dosage from potent medications.

  John Gofman, M.D., Ph.D., is one of the leading experts in the world in these issues. He is a nuclear physicist and a medical doctor.

As Dr. Gofman explains in his book "Radiation from Medical Procedures in the Pathogenesis of Cancer and Ischemic Heart Disease", the biological damage from a medical x-ray procedure does not come directly from the x-ray photons. The damage comes from electrons, which those photons "kick out" of their normal atomic orbits within human tissues. [Note: Book Review is reproduced from Health Phys. ; ].

Radiation induced heart disease (RIHD) is one such long term toxicity which can offset the improvement in cancer specific mortality. RT for the treatment of mediastinal lymphoma, breast, oesophageal and lung cancers delivers a significant radiation dose to the by: Radiation from Medical Procedures in Pathogenesis of Ischemic Heart Disease. Mortality from ischemic heart disease (IHD) has been shown to be significantly related to medical radiation even at very low doses, as suggested by Gofman. 23 The study used a premise that average per-capita radiation dose per , population is directly Author: Shah Sweni, Ramachandran Meenakshisundaram, Ponniah Thirumalaikolundusubramanian.   Breast Cancer Radiation May Affect Heart Later On a dose to the heart of 3 grays would increase the risk of death from ischemic heart disease before age 80 from percent to percent.
