The famous Dr. Oz did a program showing why Thyroid Cancer is spreading rapidly among women. Said there is probably a result of dental x-rays and mammograms.
Dentists should put on patient’s chest an apron protector that has a small tab that can be lifted and is attached to the neck (covering the thyroid gland).
Usually dentists DO NOT USE OR notified you about it!.
There is also a “PROTECTOR OF THYROID” for use during mammography …. and you have to ask for it.
Yesterday, coincidentally I had to get the mammogram and I asked for the Protector of Thyroid and pulled out of a drawer.
I asked why this is not offered routinely, and he told me I do not know, you just have to request it.
Now I wonder, how could I knew about this if I had not seen that show?
