Going to the dentist could be bad for your health?

A warning about a routine procedure at the dentist's office.

A new study out of Yale University connects x-rays that you get at the dentist with brain tumors.

The study didn't check health records, of patients with brain tumors, they relied on patients memories of which x-rays they received at the dentist and the results are disturbing.

"Those with the tumors were twice as likely to have had a bite-wing x-ray which goes around your face before they were age 10."

There is no definitive link yet.
