Body Scans are Dangerous
There is good reason to worry about the safety
of those CT scans that your doctor wants
to perform on you.
CT scans are a money-making scam for doctors.
They usually charge about $1,000 for the full-body scan. It's a series of X-rays that are
computer-enhanced to provide a detailed picture of the body. The procedure takes several days to perform.
According to Doctor David Williams, in his
Print newsletter of December, 2004, "For most
patients, the risk of developing cancer from
these scans far outweighs any possible benefits."
Here's the problem -- and it's a HUGE one.
Again, I quote Doctor Williams. "The radiation
dose from these full-body scans can be 500
times the amount of radiation in a standard
X-ray. Researchers who have studied the victims of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki blasts
of World War II have determined that full-
body scans expose the recipients to about the
same amount of radiation received by victims
who were just 2 kilometers from the blast
point of these atomic bombs."
Williams goes on to say that this amount of
radiation would result in a 1 in 1200 chance
of developing cancer. People who get the scans annually for 30 years increase their
cancer risk to 1 in 30.
I don't even let my dentist X-ray me any more.
The idea of having a full-body scan that is
the equivalent of 500 X-rays, boggles my mind!
And God knows what the barium sulphate will do
I hope you'll save that $1,000, and opt for
safe and effective alternative health therapies.
