Dr. Edward Golembe, who directs a hyperbaric oxygen chamber at Brookdale University Hospital in Brooklyn, said he had treated serious radiation injuries to the jaw and called them “a horrible, horrible thing to see.When we deal with radiation we deal with death for it is the death principle that doctors are trying to harness with terrible results. Most people who employ radiation in their treatments for cancer suffer horribly but some worse than others.

Just being alive today is to walk through the valley and shadow of death in terms of radiation exposure. Background radiation on earth has increased in the nuclear age coming from all the above ground testing of the last century, nuclear plants, nuclear waste, uranium mining, and from depleted uranium weapons that are commonly used in the American, British and Israeli armies and navies and air forces. In addition there is constant and increasing exposure to other forms of radiation from microwave towers, cell phones, wireless phones and computer systems.

And if that were not enough the medical establishment throws all caution to the wind and subjects more and more people to higher and higher levels of radiation with medical testing. The late Dr. John W. Gofman, former Professor Emeritus of Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of California, Berkeley, estimated that about three-quarters of all breast cancer cases in the United States are induced by radiation — including medical X-rays, and including mammograms to detect breast cancer.[1]

It’s a medical fact that X-rays cause cancer. This is very well known and accepted. It’s not controversial. Those painless, invisible rays that doctors aim at your chest or a broken bone or an arthritic joint are dangerous. That doctor or dentist is pointing a death ray right at you or your child and they have their reasons and habits that justify the whole experience. X-rays cause healthy cells to mutate, and mutated cells are ones well-known cause of cancer. It is not the only cause but it is one of the principle causes along with heavy metals, heavy chemical exposure as well as nutritional deficiencies, surgery and biopsies and even heavy emotional upset.

Medical radiation, received even at very low doses, is an important
cause of death from Ischemic Heart Disease; the probable mechanism
is radiation-induction of mutations in the coronary arteries,
resulting in dysfunctional clones (mini-tumors) of smooth muscle cells.
– Dr. John W. Gofman

And about half of all people with cancer are treated with radiation therapy, either alone or in combination with other types of cancer treatment.  Radiation therapy uses ionizing radiation to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. Unfortunately it can kill you. We certainly do not see doctors running for this kind of treatment when they have cancer themselves and the majority of doctors are smart enough to avoid chemotherapy as well. The nadir of medical intelligence that oncologists display, is their use of treatments and diagnostic procedures to test and treat cancer with tests and treatments that cause cancer!

Many patients experience the brutality of radiation. Doctors believe radiation is helpful for both the diagnosis and treatment of cancer even though it inflicts unspeakable pain. According to the Times, “Americans today receive far more medical radiation than ever before. The average lifetime dose of diagnostic radiation has increased sevenfold since 1980, and more than half of all cancer patients receive radiation therapy.”[2]

CT scans can deliver the radiation equivalent of 400 chest X-rays. An estimated 70 million CT (for computed tomography) scans are performed in the United States every year, up from three million in the early 1980s, and at least 29,000 cases of cancer and 14,500 deaths in the United States every year, according to a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine. A second study published in the same issue and conducted by researchers from the University of California-San Francisco suggests that the reality is even worse. When doctors play around with death, which is what they are doing with these machines, one would expect to see a lot of people dying from cancer.


Recently the New York Times reported on Scott Jerome-Parks who lay dying from a fatal radiation overdose — “which left him deaf, struggling to see, unable to swallow, burned, with his teeth falling out, with ulcers in his mouth and throat, nauseated, in severe pain and finally unable to breathe. A New York City hospital treating him for tongue cancer had failed to detect a computer error that directed a linear accelerator to blast his brain stem and neck with errant beams of radiation. Not once, but on three consecutive days.”[3]

Radiation exposure became a major concern in October 2009 after the FDA said it was investigating 206 cases of patients being exposed to toxic doses of radiation during CT scans of the brain at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. High doses of radiation can cause skin burns, cataracts and other injuries — and, in extreme cases, cancer and death. The FDA said it received 1,182 medical device reports about problems between December 31, 1999, and Feb. 18, 2010. A review of the reports showed that linear accelerators — machines that deliver a concentrated beam of electron radiation directly to the tumors — accounted for 74 percent of the complaints.

Urgent warnings by government experts about the risks of
routinely using powerful CT scans to screen patients for colon
cancer were brushed aside by the Food and Drug Administration,
according to agency documents and interviews with agency scientists.

Those who receive radiation harm can experience many discomforts including skin sores in areas of treatments. The skin can break out and peal to the point of exposing the flesh. When treating lung cancer with radiation there is risk of injury to the chest wall, the skin, muscle, bone and the lung tissue itself. Dr. John Gofman, M.D., Ph.D., was a nuclear physicist and author of Radiation from Medical Procedures in the Pathogenesis of Cancer and Ischemic Heart Disease.  His findings strongly indicate that over 50% of the death-rate from Cancer today, and over 60% of the death-rate from Ischemic Heart Disease today, are x-ray-induced.

During the 1985-1990 period, the number of diagnostic medical x-ray examinations performed per year in the USA was approximately 200 million, excluding 100 million dental x-ray examinations and 6.8 million diagnostic nuclear medicine examinations. The source of these estimates warns that 200 million could be an underestimate by up to sixty percent. Any x-ray photon may be the one which sets in motion the high-speed high-energy electron which causes a carcinogenic or atherogenic mutation. The x-ray is a proven mutagen and a proven cause of Cancer.[4]

The fact that ionizing radiation is a uniquely potent mutagen, and the finding that radiation from medical procedures is a major cause of both Cancer and Ischemic Heart clearly indicate that it would be appropriate for doctors to stop using it for the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Since they are not going to do that we need to learn how to protect ourselves from the harm of radiation as much as possible.

[4]x rays are capable of causing virtually every known kind of mutation — – from the very common types to the very complex types, from deletions of single nucleotides, to chromosomal deletions of every size and position, and chromosomal rearrangements of every type.  When such mutations are not cell-lethal, they endure and accumulate with each additional exposure to x-rays or other ionizing radiation
