Table 1 Excess relative risks for exposure to black rain for solid cancer death and solid cancer incidence (solid cancer incidence for 1950–2005 and solid cancer death for 1958–2005 were not available)

From: Low-dose radiation from A-bombs elongated lifespan and reduced cancer mortality relative to un-irradiated individuals
