Aviation Health Institute :  Aviation Health Institute Radiation Risks Dosage is accumulative Risks are low A crew member worked 700 block hours a year for 25 years – NY to Chicago – Radiation dose 68 millisieverts (mSv) Lifetime risk of fatal cancer is 1 in 360. In general population, 24% of all adult deaths were from cancer.
