RADIATION DOSE FROM PROCEDURES

RADIATION DOSE FROM PROCEDURES

Radiation is cumulative. Even the radiation you may have gotten from the shoe-fitting fluoroscope is still with you. 15,000 people die every year from cancers caused by radiation from CT scans.  And children who had a CT scan had a 24% higher risk for developing cancer, with a 16% additional risk for each additional scan. Children who had one CT scan before age 5 had a 35% higher risk for cancer.

CHRONIC TRAUMATIC ENCEPHALOPATHY (CTE) IN PLAYERS OF AMERICAN FOOTBALL

Vince Lombardi said, “Football is not a contact sport, it is a collision sport.” Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), brain damage, was diagnosed at autopsy in 177 players across all levels of play (87%), including 110 of 111 former National Football League players (99%). Nearly one quarter of the 14 high school players in the study had Chronic Trauma Encephalopathy, indicating that permanent damage begins at an early age.

NUTRITIONAL HYDRATION FOR COLD ENVIRONMENTS

An adequate energy source is most important in a cold environment. The US Military concludes that the energy needed for a person in a cold environment is between 4000 to 5000 kcal because a great amount of energy is required to keep warm. Carbohydrate foods are preferred over fats again because they are easier to use by the body, and glucose and glycogen, made from carbohydrates, are required for the shivering process.
