Children receiving CT scans have triple the risk of developing brain cancer or leukemia later in life, says an international team of researchers. This increase in risk is comparable to that faced by survivors of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of World War II.
For many years natural health experts have voiced their concerns about what ionizing radiation does to human health, and tried to present documentation to support the position that CT scans and other medical X-rays increased cancer risk. They cited the fact that those in favor of such scans have always been unable to substantiate that they were safe. But the power of indoctrination is strong, and the defenders are many. Several of the staunchest defenders of imaging devices have financial ties to the industry.
In his article Lethal Danger of CT Scans, William Faloon says that ” by ridiculing those who warned about the carcinogenic effects of X-rays, the federal government and medical establishment enabled companies making CT scanners (and other radiation devices) to earn tens of billions of dollars in profit, with Medicare and private health insurance picking up most of the costs.”
