59 External radiations protection standards are, in part, based upon data on the incidence of leukemia and other cancers in the survivors of the nuclear weapons explosions at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Analysis of the Japanese survivor data is difficult, and this difficulty is compounded by the difference in radiation fields produced by the two weapons. At Hiroshima the influence of a substantial absorbed dose caused by neutrons has made dose estimates and interpretation difficult. 1I Figure 4 shows the estimated annual leukemia deaths per 10 6 persons for the exposed ~oPulation at Nagasaki during the period 1950-1970.
