I’m not talking about a hug!
These are some Real Facts! Something every woman gets to learn sooner or later. Why not NOW! Breast thermography and very early detection is a welcome relief for many women since there are clear and present dangers from mammograms. Many women are concerned about the repeated compression and radiation to such a tender and sensitive part of their anatomy.
Although mammograms have been a part of the Cancer Industry’s screening method for years, studies have concluded that routine mammography for women under the age of 50 is totally useless. The reason is because their breast tissue is too dense to get an accurate reading. Many women are given a false positive prognosis and some choose mastectomy immediately because of fear.
Increased Cancer Risk
Many years ago, in1928, Dr. D.T. Quigley warned physicians about the dangers of spreading cancer cells through the compression of the mammogram. It is only logical that if there are small undetected tumors already developing in the breast, that painful compression could easily spread malignant cells through the blood flow and lymphatic system.
Since When is Radiation Safe?
A mammogram is X-ray radiation delivered to very sensitive tissue. A typical mammogram delivers 1000 times more radiation than a chest x-ray. How many people would be willing to stand in front of an x-ray machine for 1000 chest x rays?
Increased Cancer Risk for High Risk Women
A recent study (as reported by Pubmed.gov. 9-20011) conducted in France, highlighted the existence of breakage of DNA strands induced by mammography. It showed if you have a family history of cancer, repeated mammograms may very well increase the possibility of the development of Breast Cancer.
Thermography can detect abnormal breast patterns 5-8 years before it is visible on a mammogram. Thermography is a painless, non invasive clinical test of physiology that should be a part of very early detection.
Thanks Joyce – I had no idea!
I have stayed away from mammograms as I tend to avoid allopathic systems.
Your piece says a lot about how totally off the rails the Cancer Industry is .. which isn’t to say, of course, that western medical interventions don’t save lives too. But at what price!!!
Thanks for your comment Caitriona. I advocate thermography over mammograms.
I’ve heard lots about thermography Joyce. It’s wonderful how women now have a choice!
Yes, I agree. always good to have chaoices.
Very timely posting, I’m seeing more and more information about the many positives of breast thermography. So important to be aware of what we are subjecting our bodies to under the guise of “safe detection”. Thanks for this, Joyce – will share.
Appreciate your positive comments Robine, and your sharing with other women.
I’m so excited to hear that you support thermography instead of mammograms! I first read about thermography on the Mercola website. It created quite a fascinating conversation in the comments around breast health that you might be interested in reading. It really opened my eyes to the problems of mammograms. I still haven’t gone in for either, but it is a good reminder to remind family and clients about the option of thermography. So much healthier and more pleasant! Thanks!
I’ve been working closely with Thermographers across the US since 2007. That is when a thermographer first asked if I could create a breast oil and I said yes, I’d be glad to. Ever since I advocate self breast health with prevention, awareness, and nurture and protect with Healthy Girls Breast Oil and the lymphatic self breast massage.
Very interesting Joyce. I have been put off of thermography for fear of non-specific results, false positives, if you will. The questions of what to do after a scan that shows evidence of early breast cancer, and the emotional fall-out from a false positive feel like very big questions to me. I’m sure you have you come across those as concerns. What does one do as follow-up to a positive scan? I love the idea that there may be something so much healthier and more pleasant than mammograms. I just feel like I need the actual numbers to prove it, and I haven’t seen those.
Joyce, please share that there are other anatomical imaging technologies that provide structural info about the breast. One of them, http://www.sonocine.com Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound is a safe screening and accuracy is not affected by breast density as with mammography. It is not reimbursed by healthcare insurance currently. And sadly Sonocine is not widely available. But since you have a national audience the locater on the website is helpful. Anatomical imaging and physiological imaging will provide a better picture of breast health. More information is empowering. Hope this info helps Dr Dorine.
