Dr. Benzinger Blog - Radiation

Radiation exposure rates are skyrocketing in our children. The average child will receive 7 exposures before they are 18 years old. Because your children are growing they are even more susceptible to radiation than you and I.

Dr. Abraham demonstrated that people who receive the exposure of a total body CT scan would follow the same cancer patterns over the next 30 years of their life as those that were near the atomic blasts of Hiroshima.

This is frightening to me. Make sure you ask the Doctor at least twice whether an x-ray or CT scan will change their treatment and whether it is absolutely necessary?

God Bless,
