MAMMOGRAMS: HOAX OF OUR TIME?
NATURAL ONLINE DOCTOR’S SUNDAY BLOG
(AUGUST 17, 2014)
If you as a female see your doctor for routine check, chances are good he may recommend a mammogram. Just to make sure…
While this recommendation shall give you the feeling you are in good hands and ‘on the safe side’, as far as potential breast cancer is concerned, your doctor may still not talk with you about the side effects of mammography. Side effects? Yes, side effects. Which side effects?
First, mammography is radiation, and radiation on your body – regardless which part – is a serious risk factor of getting cancer. Seems schizophrenic – on one side detect cancer, on the other get it if you don’t have it yet? Sorry, that’s how it is, and that’s what your prescribing doctor needs to discuss with you.
Second, it is a hoax and a myth to make you believe that a mammogram is a kind of ‘life insurance’. I.e., the earlier a lump has been detected in your breast with mammography, the greater your chance of survival.
Wrong – as the most recent result of a study by the Department of Public Health of the worldwide renowned University of Oxford in the United Kingdom validated. Based on no less but 40 years of research.
According to this study at length, mammography does not reduce deaths from breast cancer. This result is in line with another study published in world’s most prestigious medical journal Lancet in 2012.
In a nutshell: Your way to avoid premature death due to breast (or any other) cancer is neither radiation or chemotherapy, nor mammographic screening, but to strengthen your body’s self-healing power naturally.
