Рентгеновское обулучение, оказывается, может способствовать раку груди.
А как же регулярные мамограммы? а прочие рентгены грудной клетки?
Ну да, "бенефитов больше, чем рисков".
И потом, попробуй докажи, что от радиации.
А еще, при некоторых видах рака груди, радиационная терапия "не работает" и даже наоборот, ухудшит прогноз..Об этом тут.
The researchers found that when levels of a tumor suppressor protein called phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) were low in a type of breast tissue called stroma, it increased the likelihood that exposure to radiation would trigger tumor growth.
Further investigation revealed that the trigger for the abnormal growth was the protein EGFR, and that blocking the protein prevented the cell changes that led to the abnormal growth.
The team then analyzed samples of breast tissue taken from patients who had undergone breast reduction surgery. They found that breast cancer was more likely to return in those patients whose breast tissue had no PTEN.
The authors note that it is unlikely that loss of PTEN by itself triggers tumor formation. They suggest that it is more likely that a second "hit" — such as exposure to radiation — is the trigger for cell changes that increase the risk of cancer.
