KC Craichy shares important information about preparing for a trip to the emergency room. What you do now to get ready will help you make the right decisions when it happens.

Audio Transcription:

Welcome to LivingFuelTV. I’m KC Craichy, bringing you an important health alert.

Imagine, you get a call from one of your children. They’ve broken a bone or been injured in some way. Are you prepared to deal with this? Or are you just going to show up at the emergency room and let them do what they do? Unfortunately, that scenario has consequences.

Recently, I got a call, in fact eight weeks ago I got a call from my son, telling me he broke his collar bone. I got home and found that to be true. Now, I’m a researcher in this area, so I was prepared to deal with what I was going to encounter at the emergency room. So I gave him 130 mg of potassium iodide, actually 100 mg potassium iodide, based on the protocols, which we have presented to you in our medical radiation shows in the past. That’s the FDA nuclear fallout protocol to protect the thyroid. Because the thyroid is looking for iodine. You need to give it iodine so it doesn’t look for radioactive iodine from the radiation test. Get to the emergency room. Expect resistance. When they were going to do an x-ray, I said, “Please use a thyroid shield.” What is that? It’s a little lead cover to put over the thyroid. They put one over the body. I want one over the thyroid also. I encountered significant resistance, saying they wouldn’t be able to get their accurate picture of the collarbone with a thyroid shield. I insisted. They took the picture. It was a perfect picture, and all was well, but there was significant resistance.

You need to be prepared. Just hearing my words is not enough to prepare you. You have to do the research before you get into situations like that. We provide much of that research, medical studies and so on, on Livingfuel.com. You can check it out and read them for yourselves.

We went for followups with another practitioner four weeks later, and I asked for a thyroid shield. I already had given him the potassium iodide. They said, “No problem. We have one here. We just only use it when people ask for it.” I thought that was amazing, because the thyroid is the number one risk area in radiation studies. They did the perfect picture again. Two weeks later, for the last followup, we went back for the last time. It was a different radiation therapist or radiotherapist, and they resisted me. They would not use the thyroid shield and I insisted they did. They said they didn’t have one, so I told what room it was in and they got it and so on. It was a lot of information. But the point is if you meet this resistance and you haven’t done your own research, you are not going to be ready.

Now, there’s much research that’s come out in recent days. Again, we’ve been reporting on this for months and months and months, but CT scans for instance are extremely dangerous. Sometimes they are medically necessary, because head injuries are a big deal, particularly in youth sports, but it is very dangerous. There are alternatives. MRI is a better alternative. There are protocols to follow. We’re going to report more to you on that in the future, but we have significant information about that on the site today under medical radiation.

We hope this helps you. God bless you and have a great day.

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!

CT Scan Radiation Linked To Cancers, Deaths

CT scans deliver far more radiation than has been believed and may contribute to 29,000 new cancers each year, along with 14,500 deaths, suggest two studies in the Archives of Internal Medicine. One study, led by the National Cancer Institute’s Amy Berrington de Gonzalez, used existing exposure data to estimate how many cancers might be caused by CT scans.

Another study in the journal suggests the problem may even be worse. In that study, researchers found that people may be exposed to up to four times as much radiation as estimated by earlier studies. While previous studies relied on dummies equipped with sensors, authors of the new paper studied 1,119 patients at four San Francisco-area hospitals, says author Rebecca-Smith Bindman of the University of California-San Francisco. Based on those higher measurements, a patient could get as much radiation from one CT scan as 74 mammograms or 442 chest X-rays, she says.
