Conclusions
 

Dr. I. Shantyr, Dr. N.V. Makarova, and Dr. E.B. Saigina of the Ministry of Extreme Accidents, St Petersburg, Russia, state (1997) that:

"In the five-year age groups cancer morbidity of the emergency workers (EWs) makes no statistically significant differences with that of the male populations of Russia and St. Petersburg. No evidence of an association between radiation dose and cancer morbidity was observed."

"There is no evidence of an association between radiation dose and cancer morbidity. No statistically significant differences were revealed while comparing cancer morbidity rates among those who took part in the cleanup of the Chernobyl accident and got definite dose of the ionizing radiation."
