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 for the thyroid 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.

Please remember to ask for "Thyroid Guard" when you go for Dental X-ray or Mammogram.

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