Precautions You Can Take During Mammograms and Dental X-Rays

Food for thought, for the Ladies:

A recent Dr. Oz show was 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, a woman who had her yearly mammogram recently asked about the guard and sure enough, the technician had one in a drawer. She asked why it wasn’t routinely used.  Answer: “I don’t know. You have to ask for it.”  Well, if she hadn’t seen the show, how would she have known to ask?
