Do you request a thyroid guard to protect you from radiation when you go to the dentist or get a mammography?

I'm watching Dr. Oz right now. He's talking about life saving procedures that we need to be aware of.
He's talking about thyroid cancer.
Please watch the show if you can. I'll be requesting a thyroid guard from now on.

  • I had not heard about this until a few days ago (my aunt emailed with a quote from Dr Oz) and I will now be asking for one! It just takes a moment to ask, and if it protects your health I think it would be a poor decision not to.
