Every day, we get exposed to various harmful radiations but shockingly, half of radiation exposure in the United States is caused by medical tests such as CT scans and X-rays. Before the radiation exposure can worsen and lead to some serious health problems, how can we do to protect our health and body from radiation exposure?
The answer is that you should eat flax seed. In a study conducted by the University of Pennsylvania, researchers found out that regular flax seed consumption can help to protect the lungs from damage associated with radiation exposure. Other studies have shown that flax seed is really effective in protecting human’s healthy tissues as well as organs from the damage before and after radiation exposure.
According to Melpo Christofidou-Solomidou, the principal investigator and professor of Medicine, Pulmonary, Allergy and Critical Care Division, flax seed-enriched dietary can keep human’s body from radiation exposure because flax seed is known for anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Therefore, we should incorporate flax seed into the daily diet
