This infographic presents epidemiology data from the WHO on the increased incidence of thyroid cancer among children after the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl. It depicts thyroid cancer incidence data at regular time intervals from 1982 (to give a baseline value pre-1986) to 2005, and depicts incidence in relation to radiation dosage (in Gy absorbed by the thyroid), age at time of exposure, the population of each age group, and gender.
