A new study suggests people who had certain kinds of dental X-rays in the past may be at an increased risk for meningioma, the most commonly diagnosed brain tumor in the U.S.

The findings cannot prove that radiation from the imaging caused the tumors, and the results are based on people who were likely exposed to higher levels of radiation during dental X-rays than most are today.

"It's likely that the exposure association we're seeing here is past exposure, and past exposure levels were much higher," said Doctor Elizabeth Claus, the study's lead author and a professor at the Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut.

My dentist,from when I was a little kid,had been my moms dentist for years.
He didn't even leave the room when he took a patients xrays.
He died very young,with cancers all through his body,when I was a teenager.

Miss me?

I have seen that in my local newspaper as well.

Not so surprizing. I mean, x-rays are x-rays no matter what.

Bartender says: "Sorry, we don't serve faster-than-light neutrinos here."

So you have these two faster-than-light neutrinos walking into a bar...
