(NaturalNews) Any time you threaten to take away repeat customer from the businesses that make up the cancer industry, you're in for a political fight. After the United States Preventive Services Task Force released new recommendations advising against mammograms for women under 50 (and recommending only bi-annual screenings after that), the cancer industry went berserk.

Mammograms, you see, are the bread and butter of the for-profit cancer industry. They serve two very important purposes:

Purpose #1: RECRUIT patients. Mammograms are a clever tool for recruiting patients into a highly-profitable regimen of chemotherapy drugs, radiation and surgery that, nine times out of ten, isn't even medically justified. How's that? Because the detection technology behind mammograms is now so advanced it can detect tiny tumors present in virtually everyone, whether they're dangerous or not. This has lead to a huge increase in "false positives" and dangerous over-treatment of cancers that would be better off just left alone (or treated with anti-cancer nutrients and superfoods).

But mammograms are a great way to scare women into unnecessary cancer treatments. So they're pure genius when it comes to recruiting new patients using the fear tactics the cancer industry has come to rely on.

Purpose #2: CAUSE more cancer. The second purpose of mammograms is to cause cancer by exposing women's breasts (and heart tissues) to ionizing radiation. When subjected to repeated exposure of such radiation, the human body will undergo DNA mutations and inevitably be afflicted with cancer. This is how the cancer industry can make predictions like "one out of every three women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime..." -- they know this to be true because they are the ones causing the cancer in the first place!

If you took your car to a mechanic to have the oil changed, and that mechanic poured corrosive bits of metal into your car's engine that caused long-term engine damage, would you continue to take your car to that same mechanic year after year? And if so, would you PAY that mechanic to repair the damage he actually caused?

That's what women are essentially doing when they receive mammograms. Each year, as they dutifully get their mammograms, they are exposing themselves to the very kind of radiation that causes cancer, practically guaranteeing they will eventually be diagnosed with cancer. (At which point the oncologist will say something like, "See? Good thing we do these mammograms every year, or we wouldn't have caught this tumor!")

The false cancer slogan that "early detection saves lives" would be more accurately modified to read: Repeated exposure to radiation causes cancer.

More destructive than X-raying your feet!

Did you know that in the 1940's, shoe stores used to have their own X-ray machines? Customers would try on a shoe, stick their foot in the X-ray fluoroscope machine, and see on the viewing screen how their bones fit in the shoes.

It seemed like a really neat idea, and it sold a lot of shoes. But at the same time, it also dosed customers' feet with an astonishing 20 - 100+ rems per minute of radiation. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoe-fitting_fl...). As you might suspect, a lot of these shoe store customers developed very serious health problems with their feet, including DNA mutations and cancerous lesions.

Even long after the radiation risk of such shoe-fitting machines was known to be extremely harmful, doctors stayed silent about it. The machines were never banned, either... they were quietly phased out in the 1950's after raising the cancer risks of literally millions of people.

Mammograms are the modern-day version of the X-ray shoe-fitting machine. They're represent a harmful, cancer-causing technology that people mistakenly think offers some benefit for them. But every time you use the machine, your risk of cancer goes up another notch. Meanwhile, just like in the 1940's, most conventional doctors stay silent about the cancer risks resulting from such radiation! (But more and more informed doctors are finally speaking out against mammography...)

If you were an evil genius who wanted to design and manufacture a cancer-causing machine, it would be difficult to beat the present-day mammography machine. It exposes human tissue to high-powered radiation that, if repeated often enough, practically guarantees cancer will eventually develop. In one sense, it's sort of a "slow suicide machine" that takes years (or decades) to complete its work on your body. But before you die, you get to spend your life savings on "treatments" that will leave you bankrupt just before they leave you dead.

That's the whole point of the cancer industry, after all: To maximize profits from cancer. Mammography is a key piece of the puzzle in accomplishing precisely that.

Repeat business

The truth us, mammography offers no net saving in lives at all. In fact, the procedure harms far more women than it helps. (http://www.naturalnews.com/010886_cancer_brs...)

But at the same time, it's a "perfect weapon" for generating lucrative repeat business. If you're an oncologist, the best way to ensure you'll have a cancer patient to treat at age 55 is to start exposing them to radiation at age 40 (or earlier). It's sort of like a diabetes clinic offering free candy to children: At some point, after they eat enough processed sugar, they'll come back as repeat customers suffering from diabetes.

That's why the cancer industry freaked out when a U.S. govt. task force issued its new cancer screening guidelines. All of a sudden, the cancer industry realized it would lose a lot of repeat business if the screenings stopped. So they lobbied hard for some sort of reversal.

And they nearly got it. Today Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius went on the air to announce that the task force announcing the new mammography recommendations, "does not set federal policy and they don't determine what services are covered by the federal government." She went on to explain, "My message to women is simple. Mammograms have always been an important lifesaving tool in the fight against breast cancer and they still are today." (http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/...)

In other words, keep getting your breasts irradiated. It's important for the U.S. economy! The disease industry is counting on your future cancer, didn't you know?

Confused?

The Associated Press says the new mammography recommendations from the government panel have "left women across the country confused about which advice to take."

Confused? Really?

Let's see, there's a machine that smashes your breasts, that hurts like the devil, and that blasts your breasts, heart and lungs with cancer-causing radiation.

All the evidence now points to the fact that the risk of harm caused by the machine is far greater than the risk of have your life saved by early cancer detection -- especially for women under 50.

So what is there to be confused about? The only confusion that exists is caused by the cancer industry itself which has always operated on the principle of keeping women uninformed and confused, knowing full well that people who are confused can be more easily manipulated with fear into surrendering to high-profit treatments like chemotherapy.

That's the whole point of the industry, after all: To make money treating cancer, whether the patient needs it or not.

Big, big money to be made by giving women cancer

The cancer industry likes to hide behind the false idea that it's "helping people" or "saving lives," but in reality, it's a for-profit industry that's out to maximizing profits just like every other business. And as we all know, medical corporations have absolutely no ethics: They will engage in outright criminal fraud, bribery of doctors, falsifying clinical trial data, price-fixing their products and overcharging Medicaid programs, and other similar crimes, all of which have been documented here on NaturalNews.com. (Use the search box, top right, to find articles on any of these topics if you wish.)

For these same corporations to intentionally cause cancer in women as a strategy for future profits is just standard operating procedure. They don't even think about acting with integrity or compassion: It's all about the money. So what if a few million women have to die along the way, right? We've got shareholders to think about!

Cancer is a $200 billion a year business, Suzanne Somers told me yesterday in an exclusive interview with NaturalNews (http://www.naturalnews.com/027526_Suzanne_So...). That gives the industry 200 billion reasons to keep on exposing women to radiation and creating more repeat business. That's why the cancer profiteers will fight these new recommendations tooth and nail -- their livelihoods depend on making sure more women get cancer!

Mammography is, by any honest assessment, pure quackery. It's no more accurate at detecting tumors needing acute treatment than just waving your hand over someone and guessing whether they have a tumor that needs treatment. In fact, waving your hand over someone is a lot less harmful, so it's actually better.

A far better alternative is thermography. It can detect breast cancer tumors using the infrared heat emitted by a tumor's blood supply. It's non-invasive, safe, affordable and doesn't involve deadly radiation.

And remember, even if you're diagnosed with breast cancer, chemotherapy does not work on breast cancer! You'll need a different, more natural approach. Read Suzanne Somers' book "Knockout" to find some answers, or read about Vitamin D here on NaturalNews:
