Mortalité par maladies de l’appareil circulatoire et autres affections non cancéreuses dans la cohorte INWORKS des travailleurs du nucléaire Volume 17, issue 1, January-February 2018



This news is based on the following article: Gillies M, Richardson DB, Cardis E, et al. Mortality from circulatory diseases and other non-cancer outcomes among nuclear workers in France, the United Kingdom and the United States (INWORKS). Radiat Res Public 2017; 188: 276-90. doi: 10.1667/RR14608.1


This analysis of non-cancer mortality in the INWORKS (International Nuclear Workers Study) population reinforces the notion that low-dose external radiation increases the risk of cardio- and cerebrovascular disease. Nevertheless, the findings are fairly inconclusive.
