Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tueiday, Auguil U. 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID New study reveals cancer increase Leukemia rate still high in Hiroshima survivors By CEOFFHEY HIROSHIMA, Japan (Reu- Icr) Doclors investigating the after-effects of the IMS atomic bombing of Hiroshima are finding disturbingly high rates of leukemia and cancer in survivors who were only young children at the time. Death rales sre signifi- cantly higher than the na- tional average and there is no sign that the peak has been reached, says a study lished by American and Japa- nese doctors attached to (he Atomic Bomb Casually Com- mission. The commission examines statistics based on studies of victims and a control of people not involved in the tombing. Tlie latest report, compiled by doctors in charge of (he statistics, medicine and path- ology departments, covers survivors exposed to atomic radiation and unexposed controls. All were under. 10 years of age wlren Hiroshima became the first city hit by an atom bomb Aug. 6, 1945. The report notes that leuke- mia was identified early as an important radiation effect among survivors. Most of Ihe deaths up to 1955 were attrib- uted to this. EVIDENCE MOUNTING But (lie commission doctors say evidence now is accumu- lating that the bomb's insidi- ous after-effects arc also ap- pearing in the shape of malig- nant tumors and other forms of cancer. This is most noticeable in survivors who received radia- tion doses exceeding 100 RAD scientific measurement of radiation. Of the study group, the re- port says, there were high-dose survivors, eight of w'lom had died from leukemia by 1969. This compares uith a na- tional average of 0.42 such deaths. The doctors say there were eight more deaths from carj- cer other than leukemia against an expected one to two deaths, five deaths from carcinomas (cancer) of the thyroid gland against an ex- pected two to three, and deaths from olher forms of cancerous malignancies where one to two would nor- mally be expected. The commission report states that although there are only 19 malignant neoplasms these have occurred in a group of only per- sons, the oldest of whom now is only 35 years. 25 YEARS LATER "In short, after a latent pe riod of about IS is, from I960 dren who received radiation doses of 100 RAD or more to develop an excessive number of malignant neo- plasms, and now, 25 years after the exposure, the accu- mulated increase is clearly apparent, with no evidence yet that the peak has been reached. "Uuring the next 10 years these persons will be entering the ages when, ordinarily, cancer rates begin to increase markedly. "Sreculation useless 2.1 to what the future may hold. However, il is clear that this group of persons exposed ss children musl IK followed closely and continuously." Meanwhile, the Hiroshima University Boml) Radioactiv- ity Medical Research Institute has Iwgun a study of possible genetic damage in the post- bomb generation. Provincial authorization needed {or kindergartens Are interested electors free to work for chosen party? By MARILYN ANDERSON Family Editor How free is the average Al- bertan elector to participate in the upcoming election activi- ties? Are we really free to choose our party and candi- date?
