High doses of radiation can cure cancer but low doses can prevent it.  New research indicates that low doses of radiation Reduce the natural risks of cancer and birth defects. 

Most cancers and birth defects occur for natural reasons, and it is widely believed that any exposure to radiation increases that risk.  However, there is no scientific evidence that this is true for the low doses that most people might receive from the environment, medical tests or the workplace.  On the contrary, surprising new research indicates that low doses of radiation are actually beneficial and reduce these natural risks.
