Treat your body well during stressful travel


While most of us associate radiation exposure with having CT scans or x-rays done at either medical or dental visits, unless someone has an accident when they are away, vacation and radiation don’t seem to go together. However, if you are flying the friendly skies, exposure to cosmic rays at very high altitudes can be more than you would imagine. In fact, a cross-country round trip flight can expose you to nearly as much radiation as a chest x-ray. The problem with radiation is that it leads to DNA damage, by way of oxidation or free radical formation. DNA damage raises our risk of developing all different types of cancer. No need to cancel your travel plans though, rest assured that there is something that you can do to protect your cells… eat nutrient-rich food, high in antioxidants.
