It’s a well known fact that x-rays are causing cancer, even diagnostic use. An Australian radiologist estimated that about 270 Australians die each year from cancer, caused by such tests. Also the electromagnetic radiation from powerlines and household appliances may contribute slightly carcinogenic effects.
