Be Careful at the dentist

 


On Wednesday, Dr. Oz had a show on the fastest growing cancer in women,
thyroid cancer. It was a very interesting program and he mentioned that
the increase could possibly be related to the use of dental X-rays and
mammograms. He demonstrated that on the apron the dentist puts on you for
your dental x-rays there is a little flap that can be lifted up and wrapped
around your neck. Many dentists don't bother to use it. Also, there is
something called a "thyroid guard" for use during mammograms.

By coincidence, I had my yearly mammogram yesterday. I felt a little
silly, but I asked about the guard and sure enough, the technician had one
in a drawer. I asked why it wasn't routinely used. Answer: "I don't know.
You have to ask for it." Well, if I hadn't seen the show, how would I have
known to ask?

We need to pass this on to our daughters, nieces, mothers and all our
female friends and husbands tell your wives !! I just did, now you send
it on to your list.

Someone was nice enough to forward this to me. I hope you pass this on
to your friends and family.
