Again in , the Committee on Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation (NAS/NRC) in their report [8] raised the issue of "hot spots", or particulate sources, as inducers of lung cancer. The BEIR Committee referred to the work of Grossman et al. [9], who compared the carcinogenicity of Po in the lung when the agent was administered by. CHAPTER VII SOMATIC EFFECTS OF IONIZING RADIATION Summary and Conclusions I. Introduction Consideration has been given in this portion of the report to those effects of ionizing radia- tion that are manifested in exposed individuals themselves (i.e., somatic effects) as contrasted to effects that are manifested in subsequent generations (i.e. 22 Acute Responses to Ionizing Radiation John B.
