Really? A little bit of radiation is good for us? Tell me the EPA is not really on board with this: ‘Calabrese and his supporters argue that smaller exposures of cell-damaging radiation and other carcinogens can serve as stressors that activate the body’s repair mechanisms and can make people healthier. They compare it to physical exercise or sunlight.’
Perhaps chemotherapy is also good for our skin and maybe cancer itself is character building. I sure feel a hell of a lot better about my 101 chest CT’s now. And those 37 chest x-rays? Just icing on the cake.
Read the whole ridiculous article here, at STAT. And weep.
