Hidden Dangers of Radiation Exposure Causing Later Life Cancers

From Denny: Well, looks like the medical community is beginning to confess finally that a lot of their common tests are not as safe as they think. Perhaps this excessive "cover your butt" testing came out of a broken health care system.

And the way the insurance lobbyists are winning on Capitol Hill to avoid any real health care reform in America, it sure looks like we need to guard our own health far more zealously. At least we are getting some honesty out of our doctors as to the true risk factors of some of these test. It does make me wonder if this is a high contributing factor as to why we see so much cancer in America, even among children.

Cardiologist Dr. Rita Redberg claims commonly performed CT scans are exposing patients to more radiation than previously thought. Take a look:
