Warning over dental x-rays

Posted:

A new warning about dental x-rays. A study published in the journal "Cancer" shows a link between frequent x-rays and developing a certain brain tumor.

Researchers found patients who had bite on "bitewing" x-rays at least once a year had a 40-to-90 percent greater risk of the tumor. Researchers say that the new findings don't mean you should stop going to the dentist or does it prove x-rays cause tumors.
