On the cover: The distribution of time to death with respect to alpha-radiation lifetime average dose rate to the skeleton is presented for people who ingested large amounts of 226Ra at age 20. This figure shows premature deaths associated with radiation injury at high dose rates. It also shows premature deaths from bone cancer and head cancer at intermediate dose rates. It shows no abnormal life shortening at lower dose rates. See article by Otto G. Raabe on page 515 for more information.   LWW image
