Question by Frasier C.: How can you get rid of radiation from a cat scan?
Today I got my first cat scan and no one told me how much radiation this puts out. Should I be worried? Please help. Plus is there such a way to detox the radiation out of my body?

There is not way to detox your body of radiation. The harmful effects come from the impact it has on your cells at a molecular level but the radiation does not stay in your body so to speak. Having a CT is like having 400 quite a few x-rays depending on what kind of scan you had. I would not say freak out by any means but it is definitely something to be aware of in the future when your doctor wants you to undergo a CT scan.

    Radiation?? A CT scan is an x-ray imaging device. If someone mentioned radiation in some other form of scan, the radiation doesn’t remain long enough to make any difference.,

    I don’t think it is much to worry about or anything you can do other than eat a very healthy diet. Read up on natural blood purifiers and I’ve read that cilantro has heavy-metal cleansing properties. I’m curious about your respiratory condition, I’ve improved my health from a serious industrial lung problem. Email if you wish.

    Another good thing to do is have your blood drawn regularly, whether you donate it or not.
