I have multiple blood circulation problems, coronary artery diseasae, peripheral artery disease, and Raynaud's Phenomenen. I was exposed from March 17th, 1958 till June 12th, 1958 to multiple atomic and nuclear bomb tests at the Pacific test site, Eniwetok. I was an aircrew member which photographed Wahoo and Umbrella, both Hydrogen bomb detonations as well as witnessing 44 other atomic tests. I believe the radiation has had an influence on the scarring of interior walls of the arteries. I have a claim in with the Veterans Administration and any direction or assistance would be appreciated. Thank You
Hi check out this sight it is very informative! I am unable to copy and paste any information though as it is copyright protected http://www.jstor.org
Also found this on another site; A clear association between thoracic radiotherapy and ischemic heart disease was observed among older clinical studies using radiotherapeutic techniques that are no longer optimal by today's standards. Such a relationship could not be confirmed in modern studies in which treatment factors (such as dose and volume of heart irradiated) were more carefully controlled.
