(NaturalNews) The cancer industry is getting so desperate to recruit new customers that it is resorting to cheap gimmicks and bribery to convince women to get screened for breast cancer. It recently came to our attention that numerous hospitals and cancer centers across the country are now advertising "free" gift cards to their members who agree to get mammograms, as if the irradiating medical procedure was some kind of "Black Friday" special just in time for Christmas.

The UCare health group in Minneapolis, for instance, sent out pamphlets to its members notifying them that if they fall between the ages of 50 and 69, they are eligible to receive a $25 gift card if they get a mammogram. Eligible members do not even have to fork over a co-payment -- all they have to do is have their health provider fill out, sign and mail in a voucher, similar to how a mail-in rebate would be redeemed for a discounted television.

The CentraState Healthcare System in New Jersey offers a similar program to members who agree to get a mammogram. According to the health group's website, women who agree to have their breasts blasted with cancer-causing, ionizing radiation will receive not only a $30 gift certificate towards a one-hour health spa session, but also a one-week pass to the CentraState wellness center.

And in Michigan, the Henry Ford Health System entices local women, and particularly minorities, with $20 gift certificates in exchange for getting mammograms. According to the group's website, this carrot-on-a-stick approach to convincing more women to get mammograms is part of an affirmative action-type program to "eliminate [the] racial gap in mammogram screening." (http://www.henryford.com/body.cfm?id=46335&action=detail&ref=753)

And the list goes on and on, with health groups in Illinois (http://thesouthern.com), Wisconsin (http://www.publichealthmdc.com/wwwp/documents/KomenFlyer.pdf), and many other places all offering trifle rewards for compliance with the mammogram agenda. Some hospitals are even encouraging local women to hold so-called "mammogram parties" for the purpose of getting women drunk and persuading them to get irradiated. (http://abcnews.go.com)

Mammogram hysteria a direct result of emerging research on its dangers

Somehow, none of this is surprising, especially when considering the fact that at least a dozen scientific studies published in recent years have identified mammograms as not only highly dangerous (http://www.naturalnews.com/033458_mammography_dangers.html), but also a direct cause of breast cancer (http://www.naturalnews.com/010886_breast_cancer_mammograms.html). A Danish doctor actually published a study in the journal The Lancet back in 2006 that showed mammograms offer absolutely no health benefits at all. (http://www.naturalnews.com/021608_mammograms_cancer_risk.html)

So you can expect to see a whole lot more bait-and-switch marketing, cheesy gimmicks, and other ridiculous shenanigans aimed at the basest instincts of human nature. Free money? You can do whatever you want to my body! In truth, accepting a gift card in exchange for having your breasts medically molested is actually a form of medical prostitution.

It is almost as ridiculous as dangling free flu shots as an incentive to convince people to turn in their guns, which is what the city of Worcester in Massachusetts is currently trying to do (http://www.naturalnews.com). Anything to persuade free individuals to give up their rights, their dignity, and their informed consent is open game to the eugenicists, who want nothing more than to seize all of these things and more from the American people in exchange for a few pieces of silver.
