Radiation and chemotherapy are normalized treatment protocols that are believed by many to cause cancer and age cells:
Laurie McGinley. December 25, 2016. A new urgency to protect survivors of childhood cancer. The Washington Post, https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/a-new-urgency-to-protect-survivors-of-childhood-cancer/2016/12/25/f29abb92-c0a8-11e6-afd9-f038f753dc29_story.html?utm_term=.a9d181b75141&wpisrc=nl_headlines&wpmm=1Many years ago I mentored someone who developed breast cancer from working at a semiconductor plant in southern California without adequate protection. The radiation and chemo treatment she received for the breast cancer later caused uterine cancer. She also developed a brain tumor that had to be removed.
One of medicine’s greatest successes is the sharp rise in survival rates for children with cancer. But the flip side of that success is that many of those children are turning up years or even decades later with serious and sometimes life-threatening complications, including second cancers, heart disorders, cognitive problems and infertility.
“These treatments seem to accelerate the aging process,” said Greg Aune, a researcher and pediatric oncologist who works at a clinic for childhood cancer survivors at University Hospital in San Antonio, where Galan gets her care.
… By age 50, 1 in 3 women who received chest radiation for Hodgkin’s lymphoma will develop breast cancer, compared with less than 1 in 20 in the general population, Armstrong said.
She survived all these cancers, somehow, although her bones were too brittle and she was too weak to work outside of her home for years (perhaps even still).
She was a victim of poor occupational health in her workplace and later she was inadvertently victimized by the medicine that tried to save her.
My experience is that most doctors (and dentists) have limited knowledge and understanding of ionizing radiation.
Their understanding of the human body is too often reductionistic and mechanistic.
Until we see the entire body as a system embedded in environments that shape every molecular process we will remain trapped within a paradigm that allows toxins to destroy biological bodies while treating the resulting "disease" with more toxins...
