Figure 2: The lifetime attributable risk of cancer mortality (expressed as a percentage of a population exposed to a single 0.1 Gy dose) as a function of age at time of exposure. The data for men (squares) and women (triangles) are shown separately; the average over the 80-year period is 0.76% for women (solid line) and 0.51% for men (dotted line). This figure indicates the age and gender dependency of radiation-induced cancer mortality, constructed using data from the BEIR Report VII (2006)[5]
