According to Wikipedia, Acute Radiation Syndrom (ARS) results from damage to
- "other key molecular structures within the cells"
I'd like to know how relevant damage of the second kind is. Given that DNA damage in turn leads to cancer, the correlation between ARS and development of cancer might give at least a hint as to how important that second factor is.
So: How likely is a person to develop cancer, given he has already had ARS in the past?
