Dear Living Fuel Family,

Imagine for a moment that today is April 26, 1986. You and your family live in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, one mile from the sprawling Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. Technicians there perform an operational test that goes severely wrong, shrill alarms pierce the air and a series of thunderous nuclear explosions occur, followed by the subsequent toxic nuclear fallout. The immediate and debilitating effect on your family’s health is incalculable. Even today, 24 years later, in the nation known as Ukraine, the residents of Chernobyl and the surrounding area still face the devastating health effects of this disaster. What you may not know, however, is that the lifetime cumulative effect of various forms of medical radiation could have a similar effect on your family’s health where you live today.

Today, we continue our special series of interviews with Dr. Patrick Purdue, Doctor of Oriental Medicine (DO) and Doctor of Naturopathy (ND). We discuss the little-publicized dangers of medical radiation and share important information that we should all consider as we make important medical decisions for our families. Dr. Purdue and I also present safer alternatives to conventional medical radiation that you need to be aware of. We also tell you what you can do to protect yourself if you have an ionizing radiation test. Take your and your family’s health care into your own hands – educate yourself to make informed and wise medical decisions.

Here’s to your Super Health!

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.
