In 1956, a British doctor named Alice Stewart made an alarming discovery. Pregnant women who were exposed to X-rays, she found, were more likely to have children who would die from cancer. 

We know now that the radiation from X-rays is indeed harmful. But at the time, Stewart’s finding flew in the face of the accepted narrative about X-rays—that they were the paragon of modern scientific achievement, and that their use would improve lives, not harm them.

Activist Tamika Mallory had sharp words for Kentucky’s Attorney General Daniel Cameron Friday for failing to indict the police officers involved in the killing of Breonna Taylor.

Cameron announced last Wednesday that only one of the three officers who fired shots into Taylor’s home would be charged. Former officer Brett Hankison has been charged with three counts of wanton endangerment for shooting into the apartments of Taylor’s … Read the rest
