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.
The human brain consumes about 20% of all the calories taken each day. The brain does not function well if there are few calories in the diet and if the diet lacks proper vitamin/mineral intake. Studies involving hundreds of thousands of children from the United States and around the world show this could lead to poor brain functioning, low I.Q., poor impulse control and bullying. High fat foods, junk food, and lack of vitamins, minerals, fruits and vegetables lead to a higher risk.
