Enough Already! It’s Time to Say “No” to All Except the Most Urgent of X-Rays and Electronic Imaging Procedures Like CT-Scans and Pet-Scans

January 6th, 2013

I have been writing and telling readers and friends for many years that the amount of radiation that we are exposed to by physicians and dentist is getting WAY out of hand and causing harm.

We are at the point that 2-3% of all new cancers may be due to the radiation that you are being exposed to. Some cardiac patient’s get one CT-Scan per year, not knowing that one scan is equal to 2000 chest x-rays of radiation.

Dr. Eric Topol of the Scripps Institute speaks about this problem and what you can do about it. I strongly suggest that you listen to and watch his short video.
