The United Kingdom Childhood Cancer Study of exposure to domestic sources of ionising radiation: 2: gamma radiation.

- Br. J. Cancer (2002)

Bottom Line: This article reports measurements of household levels of gamma and cosmic rays at the addresses of children with cancer at the time of diagnosis and six months before, and of similar data at the addresses of control children.There is no indication of increased risk with increasing dose rates either in matched or unmatched analyses, with or without adjustment for deprivation.Studies of the relationship between household gamma rays and radon concentration show no evidence of any interactions.
