Mainstream doctors have convinced many women that the best detection for Breast Cancer is Mammograms. This information couldn’t be farther from the truth!
As I wrote about in, Thermograms vs. Mammograms, Mammograms can cause more harm than good. Mammograms emit a high level of radiation, can increase your risk of radiation inducted cancers, and can produce false positive results.
In 2009, a government advisory group conducted a breast cancer study involving 170,000 women between the ages of 40 and 59. During this study they found that 61% of women getting annual screens were likely to receive false positive results.
61%! That’s over half.
One of the scariest things a woman can hear is that her mammogram shows a suspicious mass in her breast. Can you imagine going for an annual check up and being told you might have breast cancer? Our mind is a very powerful thing and news like this can be very physically and psychologically harmful.
Treat your body (and boobs!) with respect.
