Cancer risk to young girls

"The 20-millisievert / year figure is what the Japanese government is currently calculating as the legal limit of
radiological exposure to allow habitation of contaminated areas near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant."

"...Fairewinds determines that at least one in every 100 young girls will develop cancer for every year they are
exposed to 20 millisieverts [millisievert (1 mSv = 0.001 Sv)] of radiation."

"...At least one out of every 20 young girls (5%) living in an area where the radiological exposure is 20 millisieverts for five years will develop cancer in their lifetime."
