Dental X-rays could increase the risk of thyroid cancer

Any X-ray ( ionizing radiation) carries with it a risk of cancer.

X-ray exposure is cumulative and over all carries with it a real increased risk of developing cancer.  This includes medical x-ray, dental x-ray, chiropractic x-ray, mammogram, airport scanners, and EMF exposure from microwave cooking, WIFI, digital TV, cell phone and antenna exposure.
The thyroid gland, in the neck, is sensitive to ionising radiation, especially in children, but the potential risk posed by dental radiography is often ignored, researchers said.
In a study of 313 cancer patients, scientists from Brighton, Cambridge and Kuwait found the chances of developing cancer rose with increasing numbers of dental X-rays.
