THYROID CANCER AND DENTAL XRAYS?

GOT THIS AS A EMAIL THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE   GAIL

Some good advice I got from a friend…………….wanted to pass it on. Roberta
Thyroid cancer
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.

I don’t know if this was a rerun, but I saw the same thing on Dr. Oz a long time ago and had the same experience when I went to the dentist. Had to ask for the thyroid flap. Judy
