A radiographer demonstrates the use of a new 3D X-ray machine at Hong Kong’s Chinese University that can cut radiation exposure for patients by more than half. The latest study by Chinese scientists suggests that controlled dosages of radiation could potentially be used to ward off degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. Photo: SCMP Pictures

‘X-rays can be a double-edged sword’: Radiation also found to have beneficial effect of boosting cell’s batteries to slow ageing
