Welcome. I’m KC Craichy, Founder and CEO of Living Fuel. I come to you today with an important health alert that involves procedures which seem benign but are far from it. We’re talking about medical radiation and the impact it has on one’s life. Recently, we had a situation where one of our kids was injured in football, and they insisted on CT-scan of the head. And luckily, we had good enough advice to realize that it was a neck injury, C2 displacement and not a head injury they were dealing with and we didn’t have to force it. But when you are confronted with a situation where the emergency room says you must get a CT-scan or a CAT Scan on your child, for instance, the truth is that a CT- scan could have 500 times the radiation of a typical X-ray. Recently, if you would even do an Internet search on injuries associated with medical imaging, you would be alarmed to find that there are studies that now show that people are getting higher doses than even are intended by the machine. One such study recently showed a young man getting a CAT scan, and parts of his hair fell out as a result. They realized that the machine was dramatically higher, putting out dramatically higher radiation than it was intended to do for such a scan. The scanning continued for 18 months, and 200 more people were injured before it was done. The truth is middle of the night CAT scans are probably not the best safest test for you. Most of the time an MRI is a safer test. So, multiple examples. For instance, 20 mammographies over a lifetime are similar radiation load to standing one mile from Hiroshima when the atomic bomb went off. So, medical radiation is a big deal. Now, the expert in the field, the main expert, Dr. John Gottman, MD, PhD in Nuclear Physiology, he wrote enormous books. I’ll show you a couple of ones here. This one here is called, “X-ray: Health Effects on Common Exams” and it talks about a lifetime of a person. For instance, one male infant getting two shots of chest X-rays, makes a chance of one in 3,500 of getting cancer as a later result of the X-Rays, a female a chance in 1,800. It goes on to talk about low arm exam, two shots at age 5. Angiography at age 5, 40 films. dental X-rays, 16 films, and so on. And so, over a lifetime of medical exams, you have an enormous load of radiation that has been shown to cause basically every disease known to man. Dr. Gottman also put together a medical text book. Many of you watching are doctors and you’re saying, “Oh, come on. How big of a deal could this be?” But there’s another book by Dr. Gottman, “Radiation from Medical Procedures” that is a medical textbook which lays out enormous facts about the various exams. Radio frequency ablation is an extraordinary high load of radiation. Don’t just accept that this is a test that you should get. You need to know about what safer alternatives there might be. Now, sometimes you just have to have a CAT scan, but there also is a radiation protocol where one can take 130 milligrams of potassium iodide 30 minutes before the procedure to protect the thyroid. Because one of the main things you want to do in a case like nuclear fallout, this is an FDA protocol, in nuclear fallout they say to take 130 milligrams of potassium iodide to protect the thyroid. The thyroid is an organ that is looking for iodine. If it’s deficient, it’s going to find any iodine it can get, including radioactive iodides. If the thyroid is filled, all the ports are filled with iodine, then the iodides will not damage the thyroid or to a much lesser extent. If you have to have radiation, make sure that the parts of the body not getting radiated are covered. Make sure that you have some potassium iodide, that your antioxidant status is high and so on. We’re going to put some more information on the site for you to look at, but this is a serious health concern and should be avoided, particularly on the young. The young are the most prone to damage from radiation. We’ll get some more information to you on the website. Thank you for taking the time to listen to this today. I hope it makes a difference for you. God bless and have a great day.
