    What Are The Harmful Effects Of X-Rays?


    Ads by GoogleRadiation TreatmentsChat w/a Cancer Info Expert About Radiation Treatment Options. https://www.CancerCenter.com


    X-ray is a type of high energy radiation and has some harmful effects, which include biological radiation effects. These radiation effects can be destructive to all living tissues and can cause DNA damage and mutations. The DNA damage if occurs can further enter certain states such as senescence that is an irreversible state of dormancy, cell suicide also known as apoptosis and unregulated cell division that forms a cancerous tumor. The x-rays have bad effects on pregnancy and childbirth. The birth defects can deform the body of the infant and could be fatal to his life.
    X-rays can harm the tissue in the bones which is called bone marrow. X-ray can cause baldness that is the loss of hair on the head. X-rays also cause cancer development, thyroid cancer and invisible spectrum. X-rays have biological radiation effects, which are observed when ionizing radiation strikes living tissue and destroys the molecules of cellular matter. Birth defects are also known as congenital disorders are abnormalities of structure or function that exists at birth. Pregnancy and childbirth imply the gestation period of the human reproductive cycle. Bone marrow is a soft and pulpy tissue that fills the bone cavities, which occur in two forms i.e. red and yellow. Hair loss is a baldness or alopecia that is partial or complete loss of hair affecting the scalp. Thyroid cancer also known as endocrine gland occurs in all vertebrate animals. Anonymous

    Exposure to medical X-Rays is very safe, you get more exposure to x-radiation flying than you do on one x-ray medical exam. They say 300 x-ray scans means you get a 1% better chance of developing cancer, so the risk is too minimum to worry. Anonymous

    As long as there is a risk..we can not ascertain that the small risk can be ignored in medical examination. Especially when you are not sure about the machine emitting those x-ray. Can only have an x-ray when its very very necessary to avoid the possible risk that exist. Anonymous

    I don't have any scientific proof, but I had my lungs x-rayed 3 times in 3 weeks, and a bunch of my hair fell out a few weeks later. I believe it was the xrays that caused that. Anonymous

    High levels of radiation.  We receive radiation from the sun & from flying in airplanes.  Frequent x-rays and CT scans (pronounced cat scans) can increase the level of radiation in our body to toxic levels...if this occurs certain cancers can form.  An occasional X-Ray, or CT scan (if needed) is usually ok.

    I do believe x ray are not good for you, the less you get expose the better especially during pregnancy.
