    The Impact of Radioactive Contamination on Infectious Disease Dynamics in Animals, Marine Life, and Humans
    Author(s): Nidhi Joshi and Kajal A. Pradhan*

    Infectious disease-chemical pollution interactions are well-known and recognised as key variables in controlling how wild animals react to pollutant exposure. However, although commonly occurring in conjunction with chemical pollution, the influence of ionising radiation and radio nuclides on host-pathogen interactions in contaminated environments has been ignored. Nonetheless, there is a large body of literature on host-pathogen interactions under radiation exposure from laboratory and field investigations, and with a renewed interest in radioecology growing, an assessment of infectious disease dynamics under these settings would be appropriate. In laboratory studies, the impact of external ionising radiation and radio nuclides on animal hosts and pathogens (viruses, bacteria, protozoa’s, helmets, and arthropods) is assessed, and data from field studies, in..
