(NaturalHealth365) Repeated X-rays are widely acknowledged to subject the human body to potentially harmful radiation levels. However, a lesser-known fact is that CT scans (computed tomography) also pose a hidden risk of radiation exposure.
CT scans can expose individuals to radiation doses that are as much as 200 times greater than those from a typical chest X-ray. Astonishingly, only a few people are aware of this substantial difference in radiation exposure. It is crucial to emphasize that, according to the National Academy of Sciences, there are no safe doses of radiation.
