Exposure to X-rays or other radiation over and above a certain cumulative tolerance limit can be damaging to the human body. This fact is thoroughly explained in Mr. Humphrey's article on Radiation in this issue of this law review. But a person thus injured by x-ray radiation from so-called fluoroscopic fitting machines in shoe stores will find it virtually impossible to make out a cause of action in negligence against the owners and operators of the machines. Yet, use of such machines now is known to be seriously harmful, unless that use is closely controlled.
