Research indicates that out of all children who undergo abdominal or head CAT scans every year, five hundred may ultimately die from cancer developed due to the radiation from the scan.
Luckily, foods rich with antioxidants and vitamin C, such as citrus, nuts, seeds, pumpkins, peppers, kale, spinach, etc., can combat these negative effects of radiation and offer some protection.
Generally speaking, eating herbs and spices will increase the amount of salicylic acid in your bloodstream. Salicylic acid is known to have anti-cancer properties, and can reduce your risk of developing cancer.
Know the risks of radiation.
Radiation (such as from CAT scans) can cause cancer in children. To combat these negative side effects, feed your children more fruits rich in vitamin C and antioxidants.
Eat more herbs and spices.
This includes chili powder, paprika, turmeric, and cumin.
