Mammograms and Breast Cancer – Part 2 Radiation Risks Many critics of mammography cite the hazardous health effects of radiation. In 1976, the controversy over radiation and mammography reached a saturation point. At that time mammographic technology delivered five to 10 rads (radiation-absorbed doses) per screening, as compared to 1 rad in current screening methods. In women between the ages of 35 and 50, each rad of exposure increased the risk of breast cancer by one percent, according to Dr. Frank Rauscher, then-director of the NCI. According to Russell L. Blaylock, MD, one estimate is... (Read More ...)

Mammograms and Breast Cancer – Part 1 Breast cancer is the leading cause of death among American women between the ages of 44 and 55. Dr. Gofinan, in his book, Preventing Breast Cancer, cites this startling statistic along with an in-depth look at mammographic screening, an early-detection practice that agencies like the American Cancer Society recommend to women of all age groups. According to most health experts, catching a tumor in its early stages increases a woman’s chances of survival by at least 17 percent. The most common method for early detection is mammography. A mammogram... (Read More ...)

Be Aware – Are You Taking Fosamax? A growing body of evidence suggests that a popular family of osteoporosis drugs may actually lead the weakening of bones, increasing the risk of fractures. Use of bisphosphonates such as Merck’s Fosamax for more than five years may predispose women to break their femurs (thigh bones), yet neither Merck nor the FDA has made any effort to warn doctors of this fact. “We are seeing [thigh fractures in] people just walking, walking down the steps, patients who are doing low-energy exercise,” said Dr. Kenneth Egol of New York University. The... (Read More ...)

Importance of Hormones If you’re a woman over the age of 50, your risk of heart disease, osteoporosis, and dementia goes up significantly. Fortunately, the reason is easy to explain. And, more importantly, it’s easy to fix. What’s more, this is strictly a female issue. Unless it is his wife who has it, and then it can become a distinct issue, men don’t have to worry about this cause. That’s because the obvious reason for this increased risk is menopause. When menopause hits, a woman’s body slows way down in its production of hormones, particularly estrogen. Fortunately,... (Read More ...)

Pushing Mammograms on Women With Alzheimer’s Disease Here’s a story about the mammography industry that sounds almost too crazy — and too greedy — to be true. But the facts are documented in a new study by University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) researchers. It turns out that unneeded, expensive mammograms are being pushed on elderly women who are incapacitated from Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia, especially if the women have savings or assets of $100,000 or more, . The study, which was just published in the January edition of American Journal... (Read More ...)

New Evidence – Mammograms May Not be the Best Answer (NaturalNews) Ever since the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force took a look, finally, at the scientific evidence and announced new recommendations earlier this month for routine mammograms — specifically that women under 50 should avoid them and women over 50 should only get them every other year — the reactions from many women, doctors and the mainstream media have reached the point of near hysteria. Not getting annual mammograms, some say, means countless women will receive a virtual death sentence because their breast tumors... (Read More ...)

(NaturalNews) She is One of the Top Researchers For These Vaccines One of the key researchers involved in the clinical trials for both Gardasil and Cevarix cervical cancer vaccines has gone public with warnings about their safety and effectiveness. This highly unusual warning against these vaccines by one of Big Pharma’s own researchers surfaced in an exclusive interview with the Sunday Express in the UK over the last few days. There, Dr. Diane Harper openly admitted the vaccine doesn’t even prevent cervical cancer, stating, “[The vaccine] will not decrease cervical cancer rates... (Read More ...)

Natalie Morton Dies at School (NaturalNews) Natalie Morton is dead. One week ago, she was an energetic and lively 14-year-old student who was just following doctor’s orders. Like all her other classmates, she believed she was dutifully protecting her health by submitting to a cervical cancer vaccine jab. But a few minutes after receiving her vaccine shot, things began to go wrong. As one of her classmates said in a report published in the Daily Mail: “About an hour after having the jab Natalie went really pale and wasn’t breathing. I think it was around lunchtime. She fainted... (Read More ...)

The Gardasil Vaccine When the Gardasil vaccine was approved back in November of 2006, Dr Christiane Northrup was advising mother’s against having themelves and their daughters vaccinated for this the human papilloma virus (HPV) . Merck, the makers of Gardasil set up a media campaign using fear (what else do they use?) with a focus to have every female in America, from the ages of 9 to 26 be vaccinated. They claimed it would prevent cervical cancer. Some states even mandated every girl entering middle school (even those not sexually active) to be vaccinated. This does not make sense, since... (Read More ...)
