Radiation wipes out stem cells

Ionizing radiation exposure, whether accidental or deliberate, can be fatal. This is because of the widespread destruction that radiation does to hematopoietic stem cells in the bone marrow that make all blood cells. Some cancer treatments irradiate malignancies to destroy blood cells, followed by the transplantation of replacement stem cells to rebuild blood stores. Unfortunately, this procedure includes shutting down the immune system to prevent the body’s rejection of the new stem cells, bringing about high rates of severe anemia and deadly infections. The effectiveness of these radiation treatments depends upon how well the replacement hematopoietic stem cells do their job. Radiation therapy also affects any healthy cells hit with this cancer ray. This therapy can bring about the occurrence of secondary cancers caused by the “cancer treatment”. Have ever seen a double-blind study between chemo/radiation and a placebo to see who lives longer? Doesn’t exist…
