How often can x-rays be taken?

Argued that x-rays can not be done too often. However, as a rule, it is not always possible to choose whether to make an x-ray or not. After all, this procedure is applied not only during the determination of fractures and dislocations, but also for the determination of sinusitis, pneumonia, bronchitis, and so on. Let's see how often you can do x-rays.

Nowadays, x-rays are used, as we have mentioned, very often. After all, with the help of an X-ray image, you can not only study the potentially damaged area in detail, but also find out the stage of the disease, distinguish one disease from another, accurately determine the size of the diseased area. But, there is also a reverse side of the coin - the harm from X-rays, namely, radiation. However, you should not panic. If you have an x-ray, say, a tooth, then the radiation dose will be much less than you received in the summer sunbathing on the beach.

An average person is allowed to undergo an x-ray once a year - a dose that is not harmful to health.But if you play sports, eat well and do not have bad habits, then the amount of such exposures may be more, two or three times a year, without causing any harm to the body. After all, exposure to fluorography, for example, is minimal.

Remember also that red wine, walnuts and carrots will certainly help your body cope with any radiation of this kind.
