 Regarding "massive amounts of radiation" to heart attack patients:

Last year I had blockage of my right and my circumflex arteries of the
heart. Felt just like they teach in CPR - like a bad case of indigestion
that would not clear with antiacids. I crunched on three aspirins, then
scooped up all my meds and made it to the hospital. A couple hours later
the tests showed I was for sure having a heart attack. I watched as very
competent doctors put in four stents in my arteries. I was asking what I
was watching on the screens and was cautioned to lie back down. Hey, I
am a nosey teacher!  I was back at work in a couple weeks. I have just
had my year and a half checkup. I will gladly take the 1.45 rem! It
saved my life. Nothing like trying to scare folks out of treatment they
