The food manufacturing process in our country is inefficient, resulting in a serious problem in the control of food borne pathogens and the illnesses they cause.  In the past, the FDA who is charged with protecting consumers from such a problem, has addressed the issue by treating the symptoms and not the cause.  Instead of working harder to eliminate unclean and unsanitary food manufacturing and handling conditions, the FDA approved the irradiation of meats, poultry, fruits, vegetables, spices, lettuce and more (See our  March 4, 2014 Scales of Justice article entitled “FDA Affirms...

The clinical name for radiation sickness is acute radiation syndrome (ARS) as described by the CDC.

Medicare Claims Show Overuse for CT Scanning

Posted on Aug 30, 2011 in Health Optimization

By WALT BOGDANICH and JO CRAVEN McGINTY Long after questions were first raised about the overuse of powerful CT scans, hundreds of hospitals across the country needlessly exposed patients to radiation by scanning their chests twice on the same day, according to federal records and interviews with researchers. Performing two scans in succession is rarely necessary, radiologists say, yet some hospitals were doing that more than 80 percent of the time for their Medicare chest patients, according to Medicare outpatient claims from 2008, the most recent year available. The rate is typically less...
