Common Medical Test Could Cause CANCER
Leukemia (blood cancer) is the most common cancer in children and teens.
And, it turns out, in some cases it could be CAUSED by mainstream medicine.
A shocking new study uncovered a common health test that increases the risk of blood cancer in children by 16 percent.
If you have kids or grandkids in your life you NEED to know about this risk.
CT scans have become an increasingly popular diagnostic device.
They give doctors a closer look at internal organs, soft tissues, and blood vessels. They can be used to find bone fractures, blood clots, spinal injuries, cancer, and more.
When you read about them on the Internet, you see words like fast, painless, and low-risk.
But I would never use those words.
A recent analysis included over 1 million people under 22 years old who had undergone at least one CT scan.
Results showed that just one of these scans, which have an average dose of 8 milligrays of radiation, is linked to a 16 percent increase in blood cancer risk in children.
The greater the exposure, the greater the risk.
The accumulation of 100 milligrays of radiation to bone marrow tripled the risk of developing blood cancer.
In real-life numbers, this means that for every 10,000 children who get a CT scan, there will be 1 to 2 new cases of cancer in the following 12 years.
With 5 to 9 million CT scans performed per year on children in the US alone, you can see how those numbers would add up fast.
According to the National Cancer Institute, CT scans are the largest contributor to medical radiation exposure.
This is especially problematic for children because they’re more sensitive to radiation than adults.
CT scans can be an extremely beneficial diagnostic tool—but they’re NOT without risk.
If a doctor recommends a CT scan to you, your kids, or your grandkids, just make sure it’s necessary before blindly agreeing to it.
Then talk to him about keeping the radiation exposure as low as possible.
