LivingFuel HealthAlert: Do CT Scans Cause Cancer?

The last several months have presented one worrisome story after another regarding the dangers of CT scans… including more than 200 patients receiving radiation overdoses while undergoing brain scans at a California hospital… unpredictable and widespread variation in radiation dosing for cardiac scans from one hospital to the next… and a new research report revealing that the cancer risk from radiation in a CT scan may be far higher than was thought. Two studies on this topic were published in the December 2009 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine. One of the studies reports that just one scan can deliver enough radiation to cause cancer and predicts that 29,000 new cancers will develop that can be linked to CT scans received in just the year 2007. Making matters much worse is the fact that the use of CT scans in medicine has grown explosively — more than tripling in the US since the 1990s, with more than 70 million given each year.

Dear Living Fuel Family,

You’re leaning back in the dental chair, biting down on a plastic bit and staring up at a buzzing fluorescent light, the smell of fluoride in the air around you. An efficient dental technician plunks a bulky 25-pound lead flak jacket across your chest (to presumably protect your vital organs), then rotates a wall-mounted x-ray machine to within inches of your brain. She scurries behind a protective wall and calls out to advise nearby staff that the x-ray machine is engaged. Have you ever given much thought to the long term effects that this radiation exposure could do to your health?

Dentists, dentistry and medical diagnostics can be extremely important and in some cases even life-saving. However, there is a dark side to medical radiation as it is increasingly over-prescribed and is especially dangerous to our children.

Of course, there are valid reasons to have various medical diagnostic procedures. However, it is increasingly important that we not blindly accept our practitioner’s recommendations without doing our own research. We must take matters of health into our own hands and be well-informed consumers.

We urge you to educate yourself on the risks of any procedure that you agree to undergo. There are simple steps you can take to protect yourself, along with safer alternatives to some of the most commonly prescribed medical tests.

Watch and Learn
In today’s Video HealthAlert, we present some startling research that could change your thinking about what you may have always considered to be routine in your doctor’s office including x-rays, CT scans and mammograms. Join us as we discuss how your thyroid is at the greatest risk from medical radiation. We also show how to apply nuclear fallout protocol prior to being exposed to medical radiation by using a simple nutritional approach to protect your thyroid. By the way, if you find yourself in the dentist’s chair with the x-ray jacket across your chest, be sure and pull it up to your chin to shield your thyroid.

After watching the video, feel free to browse the links we’ve posted that offer you a host of references and known diagnostic alternatives to help you conduct your own research and reach your own conclusions.
