CT Scans More Dangerous than Previously Believed
That the FDA is actively suppressing concerns about CT scan safety is made even more disturbing by the fact that recent studies have discovered CT scans deliver far greater doses of radiation than previously believed.
One study, which used human subjects rather than dummies equipped with sensors, found that people may be exposed to up to four times as much radiation as estimated by earlier studies, the USA Today reported in an article last year.
Worse yet, based on their measurements, a patient could get as much radiation from one CT scan as 74 mammograms, or 442 chest X-rays!
It’s believed CT scans may contribute to 29,000 new cancers each year, along with 14,500 deaths.
