Changes in breast cancer (CA) incidence due to the use of radioactive materials in warfare or nuclear and environmental accidents over the last 60 years
Summary:
This research is to investigate the possibility and the extent of breast cancer rates being higher in European and Asian countries that have been damaged by warfare or nuclear accidents and the use of chemical weapons in relation to the rest of the countries in those two continents. After an extensive study of Greek and foreign bibliography, it appears that it is largely unclear whether breast cancer is a direct effect of all of the aforementioned or not. This is because there are gaps in the local reports of the responsible bodies, as well as many economic, geopolitical, cultural and time constraints. Of course, the rates of incidences and mortality of the citizens of those areas are significant and have been increasing over time, especially in people of older ages, who were between 18 and 24 years old the time period they were exposed to the various disease factors.
