    Radiation and X-Rays

    I have heard some real horror stories on X-Rays and radiation...does anyone have any knowledge (not opinion) on any dangers of having an X-Ray? I know sometimes it can outweigh the problems of not having one, but how much damage do X-rays really do?

    Unless you are having an Xray every day, very little radiation is transmitted....also, they are very careful, the issues with Xrays are infertility and radiologists take every precaution to make sure you are not exposed.

    Even when you go to the dentist, you are covered with a lead blanket to protect you.

    You would honestly need a mimimum of 1 Xray a day or 4 Xrays a week to be concerned.
