    April 26: Twenty-five years of Chernobyl health research –what have learned and where do we go from here?

    Twenty-five years have passed since radioactive releases from the Chernobyl nuclear accident led to exposure of millions of people in Europe. Studies of affected populations have provided important new data on the links between radiation and cancer – particularly the risk of thyroid tumours from exposure to iodine isotopes - that are important not only for a fuller scientific understanding of radiation effects, but also for radiation protection. These are reviewed in an article published in Clinical Oncology in a special issue devoted to the Chernobyl accident.
