X-rays are a type of radiation called electromagnetic waves, that have a slight chance of causing cancer and low risk of side effects with low exposure. High exposure can cause unpleasant things like vomiting, hair loss bleeding or fainting.
That being said, if I ever get any sort of xrays, like a dental exam or the time I stepped on a nail, I have a bowl of miso soup with wakame seaweed after. It’s more than just a side piece to sushi. It’s said to help remove the radiation from the body. There have been studies done in Japan that have proven this theory as well as regular miso consumption helping to make you a little more resistant to the radiation. I’m into it. What about you? .
