INWORKS study: risk of leukaemia from protracted radiation exposure via The Lancet Haematology

[Summary]

I am writing in response to the Article by Klervi Leuraud and colleagues reporting the findings of the INWORKS study.1 The authors analysed the association between deaths caused by leukaemia and lymphoma of radiation-monitored workers in the nuclear industry in France, the UK, and the USA, and their cumulative occupational radiation doses using the linear no-threshold (LNT) model. The authors concluded that the study provides strong evidence of an association between protracted low-dose radiation exposure and leukaemia mortality.
