I think if you had a tumor, the last thing you want to do is crush that tumor between two plates, because that spread it. – Dr. Sarah Mybill, General Practitioner (taken from documentary trailer below)
I think that if a woman age 50 has a mammogram every year or every two years, she will have breast cancer as a direct result of that – Dr. Patrick Kingsley, Environmentalist Clinic (later making the documentary trailer)
breast exam, also known as a mammogram, is a regular breast exam in order to detect breast cancer in its early stages. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), which is the most effective way to detect breast cancer compared with breast self-examination examines how – where your own breasts is checked for lumps – or examination clinical breast where a doctor or nurse examine a breast lump.
In 2011 (the latest year with available data) women and 2,078 men 220.097 in the United States were diagnosed with breast cancer and 443 women and 40.931 men in the United States died of breast cancer. It has become the most common type of cancer among women.
Here is a trailer for a documentary entitled shown, “ The promise .” The film interviews several researchers, scientists, doctors (and more), all of whom are hoping to shed light on a practice that is proving to be not only useless but harmful to the participants. More information under the video, but strongly recommend watching the documentary.
Science and research
There is a lot of scientific data concluded that mammograms are not, as the claims of CDC, the most effective way to detect breast cancer form. In fact, having a mammogram is probably the last thing you want to do if you have breast cancer.
Let’s take a look at some research that has many scientists, policy makers, and members of the medical community question the practice of breast exams.
Based on recent research, a study of 2014 published in The European Journal of Public Health entitled “Trends in the distribution stage breast cancer before, during and after the introduction of a screening program in Norway “found that breast exams actually increase the incidence of cancers localized stage without reducing the incidence of advanced cancers.
The study, which uses a large sample population of 1.8 million Norwegian women diagnosed with breast cancer from 1987 to 2010 found that:
“The annual incidence of localized among women 50-69 years breast cancer increased from 100,000 63.9 before the introduction of 141.2 after detection, corresponding to a ratio of 2.21 confidence interval (95%: 2,10; 2,32) the incidence of the most advanced cancers increased from 86.9 to 117.3 per 100 000 later, corresponding to 1.35 (1.29 -fold increase ;. 1:42). advanced cancers also increased among younger women who are not eligible for screening, whereas the incidence of localized cancers remained almost constant “.
This study describes how the screening program for breast Norway has actually increased the chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer at an early stage by more than 200%, and contribute to greater probability of being diagnosed advanced stage of breast cancer by 35%. This is the opposite of what is supposed to do mammograms; if they would be useful then the incidence of cancers would be smaller and not higher.
The study concluded that:
The incidence of localized breast cancer has increased significantly among women aged 50-69 years later the introduction of screening, whereas the incidence of the most advanced cancers was not reduced in the same period, compared with the younger age group unshielded.
Importantly, “ although the study did measure the impact of the screening program for breast Norway, a comparison of trends between participants and non-participants group eligible for screening new research age. You also need the causal link between the distribution stage and mortality to be investigated in the context of screening “.
In an article published in 2011 in British Medical Journal set out to show that breast screening by mammography is associated with a more pronounced decline in cancer mortality compared with other countries that did not offer this service. They did not expect to find the opposite; they found a drop in mortality from breast cancer among women who were not selected. They concluded that the recent downward trend in mortality from breast cancer had nothing to do with detecting and everything to do with improvements in treatment and services. ( 2 )
New data published in the British Medical Journal now suggests that none of the rewarding falls in breast cancer can be attributed to selection and that the existence a NHSBSP same (national breast screening program) should be questioned. Unless there is public pressure for an independent inquiry to challenge the status quo, it will be as usual for the screening program. Moreover, the Health Department has gotten into a corner and is no longer a matter of scientific debate – the issue has become too politicized by those who like to avoid changes of direction at all costs. – Michael Baum, Emeritus Professor of Surgery and visiting professor of Medical Humanities at University College London, is a leading surgeon British oncologist who specializes in breast cancer management ( source )
This would be an asymptomatic woman walking along the main street, which has a mammogram, and then two weeks later he says he has to have a mastectomy. This is so cruel that should make you mourn. (Quote taken from documentary trailer above)
As Sayer Ji, founder of Greenmedinfo.com points out, a National Cancer Institute commissioned expert panel concluded that “the early stages of cancer “are not cancer, which are benign or indolent growths. This means that millions of women were misdiagnosed with breast cancer over the last decades and have been subjected to detrimental treatment when would have been better left untreated or diagnosed; terribly, it is not uncommon for a misdiagnosis of breast cancer to occur.
Another study that was recently published in British Medical Journal concluded that regular mammograms do not reduce mortality rates from breast cancer. They found no evidence to suggest that mammograms are more effective than personal breast exams in detecting cancer in the age group designated. The study involved 90, 000 Canadian women and the incidence of breast cancer and mortality up to 25 years in women 40-59 years of age was compared.
The study was conducted over a period of 25 years.
many studies showing the same thing
The large number of studies that have been published in mammography screening for breast and failure to produce a profit in populations subjected to screening is overwhelming. What is even more worrying is the fact that these types of tests has also been shown that increase risk of breast cancer, and have negative consequences for physical and mental health.
U-turns not embarrass clinical scientists, unlike politicians: if the evidence changes then our minds must change. As the national program began to take its course, two disturbing observations made me start questioning my original support. First, some 10 years after the initiation of service, date of the original data set by independent groups in Europe and the US analysis They found that the initial estimate of benefit in reducing mortality from breast cancer was greatly exaggerated. – Michael Baum, Emeritus Professor of Surgery and visiting professor of Medical Humanities at University College London, is a leading British surgeon oncologist who specializes in breast cancer management
