Deadly Mammograms

Why Mammograms are so deadly.

Mammograms are a medical procedure whereby a woman places a perfectly healthy breast on a cold metal plate. Then a technician adds another cold metal plate on top of the breast and squishes the breast hard, between the two metal plates. Then the technician shoots radiation at point blank range at your breast. Can you imagine a guy allowing this to happen to his testicles? That would never happen, but women allow this insanity to happen.  I remember a woman who was told to get a mammogram every six months after the age of 50. She did this for five years. After all of her hair fell out she kept asking her doctor if the radiation could be the cause. Her doctor didn’t think so. The woman eventually got breast cancer.

Health Freedom Alliance put out an article directly linking the rise of breast cancer to the use of mammograms. This link is stunning in its indictment of these terrible, financially lucrative procedures. Consider this Norwegian study:

“The annual incidence of localized breast cancer among women aged 50–69 years rose from 63.9 per 100 000 before the introduction of screening to 141.2 afterwards, corresponding to a ratio of 2.21 (95% confidence interval: 2.10; 2.32).The incidence of more advanced cancers increased from 86.9 to 117.3 per 100 000 afterwards, corresponding to a 1.35 (1.29; 1.42)-fold increase. Advanced cancers also increased among younger women not eligible for screening, whereas their incidence of localized cancers remained nearly constant.” (1)

Mammograms are now being directly linked to a prohibitive rise in breast cancer.

And the doctors and the drug companies are making money all the way to the bank.

From Mercola’s Newsletter:

Mammograms use ionizing radiation at a relatively high dose, which can contribute to the mutations that can lead to breast cancer. You can get as much radiation from one mammogram as you would from 1,000 chest X-rays. Mammography also compresses your breasts tightly, which can lead to a dangerous spread of cancerous cells, should they exist. Dr. Samuel Epstein, one of the world’s top cancer experts, has stated:

“The premenopausal breast is highly sensitive to radiation, each 1 rad exposure increasing breast cancer risk by about 1 percent, with a cumulative 10 percent increased risk for each breast over a decade’s screening.

Don't let breast cancer sunset your life.

Don’t let mammograms sunset your life.

Thermography

Thermography does not harm your breasts and can detect any abnormality far earlier than mammograms. It is non-invasive, provides far better detail about what is happening inside your body and is worth considering before you subject your body to ionizing radiation.

 

Just Say No

What would happen if all women just said not to mammograms? What if they focused on their health, and used thermography? Perhaps the incidence of cancer among women in all categories would fall. What a concept!
