HOW ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION WORKS WITH IRON TO CAUSE LEUKEMIA

I want to share with you my findings on inducing cancer using radiation. Your post mentioned that iron is accumulated into liver. Now, read this:
How Cancer of Liver is developing in humans
Hepcidin deficiency is associated with hereditary hemochromatosis, a highly prevalent human genetic disease characterized by excessive iron accumulation. Iron accumulation in the organs leads to liver cirrhosis, diabetes, heart failure and increase risks of hepatocellular carcinoma. There are multiple origins for this abnormally low hepcidin level, from highly frequent mutations in the Hfe gene, to very rare cases of mutations in the hepcidin gene itself.
The increase in iron sometimes does not equate to increased blood supply. In fact, that extra iron induces a chain like this: increased iron > low oxygen supply > induction to produce more RBC in bone marrow > more iron metabolism > increased iron. This accumulation becomes toxic for bone marrow also.
How Leukemia is developing in Humans
The bone marrow (BM) microenvironment regulates survival and maintenance of normal hematopoietic stem cells. Within the endosteal niche, hypoxia has an essential role in maintenance of the primitive quiescent hematopoietic stem cell. We and others have demonstrated that in the context of hematologic malignancies the BM is highly hypoxic, and that progression of the disease is associated with expansion of hypoxic niches and stabilization of the oncogenic HIF-1α
In short, radiation causes iron accumulation in body and that is why we have increased cancer rate.
