Dr. Oz on Mammograms and Dental xrays

 Dr. Oz had a show on the fastest growing cancer in women, thyroid cancer.  It was a very interesting program and he mentioned that the increase could possibly be related to the use of dental x-rays and mammograms.  He demonstrated that on the apron the dentist puts on you for your dental x-rays there is a little flap that can be lifted up and wrapped around your neck. Many dentists don't bother to use it.  Also, there is something called a "thyroid guard" for use during mammograms.  By coincidence, I had my yearly mammogram yesterday. I felt a little silly, but I asked about the guard and sure enough, the technician had one in a drawer. I asked why it wasn't routinely used. Answer: "I don't know.  You have to ask for it." Well, if I hadn't seen the show, how would I have known to ask?

Putnam County Spelling Bee
Stagecrafters

This event spans the period from 2011-03-18 to 2011-04-10
Music and Lyrics by William Finn, Book by Rachel Sheinkin Conceived by Rebecca Feldman, Additional Material by Jay Reiss Welcome to Putnam County! Six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. This tuneful, offbeat musical comedy celebrates the mania of competition, and offers audience members the opportunity (strictly voluntary) to become part of the action as on-stage spellers. One of the songs sums it up best: "If you like to laugh, if you like to spell, you'll like this competition very well." Director: Jerry Haines
