Abstract

Radiation-induced cytogenetic damage in somatic cells has raised concern that low-dose ionising radiation can also damage germ cells and influence gamete production and/or function, resulting in decreased fertility. Time to pregnancy (TTP) was used to investigate whether exposure to gamma-radiation affected fertility among the residents of cobalt-60-contaminated buildings in Taiwan.
