Overweight Get More Radiation and Doctors Admit Ignorance to Damage Caused

(NewsTarget) Many people fall under the naive assumption that if a medical practitioner is recommending a drug, treatment or therapy for you, then it must be safe and effective. They assume it's also been tested and that any negative effects are known and will be shared. But, in reality, that's often not the case at all.

Recently, it was uncovered that obese patients are receiving up to 4000 percent more exposure to radiation with each X-ray - and in the ambitious medical world, the number of X-rays people receive is also increasing. The increase of radiation exposure appears to be done on the basis of logic: more radiation is needed to get an accurate exposure due to the excess fat getting in the way.

While more radiation might actually help get a usable x-ray, the question of what damage it's causing the patient is one an MIT doctor admits hasn't even been looked at. The question of it being an acceptable risk has also been neglected.

We know that radiation is dangerous. We know that radiation even from X-rays is dangerous. Years ago, when dentists were actually unaware of how dangerous radiation was, they didn't use any protection and put their fingers in front of their imaging equipment while taking X-rays - until their fingers started turning black and falling off. This is how the medical world learned that radiation was dangerous. But apparently, that wasn't enough to stop using it.

The medical world continues to use radiation in the name of a "cancer cure" and on a regular basis to look inside your body and see what illnesses have been created since the last time you were at their offices, since any real prevention is unknown by this industry. Patients are incredibly patient with this treatment by the drug world, but all of this ignores a larger, critical issue in our disease-ridden world.

Today it's extremely common for medical and food industry folks to use chemicals, treatments, and processes that are known to be dangerous, toxic, and harmful -- and sidestep the whole question of responsibility of causing danger to the population by saying, "It's never been proven to cause whatever disease is in question," and by claiming that the amounts used are too small to do the trick of creating disease.

Apparently, no one really considers that these "small" indiscretions of the body, and "small" amounts of toxic chemicals consistently added to most every body on the planet, actually add up inside the body. After a certain number of years, they are no longer in small amounts in the body, and they do become enough to do the disease creation trick. And this is when we see problems of the body, as we so consistently do.
