Beware: PSA prostate cancer screening test is a dangerous hoax, warns discoverer of prostate specific antigen

(NaturalNews) Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. By the age of 50, most men have some cancerous prostate cells, although many will never know it unless they are screened, and most will not die from it.

Luckily, it's a slow growing cancer. Although prostate cancer cases increase with age, still, only about 3% of men actually die from it.

The American Cancer Society states that in 2013, approximately 238,590 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed and estimates that about 29,720 men will die from it.

Interestingly, they also state, "Prostate cancer can be a serious disease, but most men found to have prostate cancer do not die from it. In fact, more than 2.5 million men in the United States who have had prostate cancer at some point are still alive today."

PSA screening disaster

The standard PSA (prostate specific antigen) test was approved by the FDA in 1994, and each year millions of men are screened via a blood test for the PSA antigen, which is manufactured exclusively by the prostate gland.

For many men, this is when the serious life threatening trouble begins. Early, aggressive allopathic prostate cancer treatment can and does cause permanent damage, including impotence, heart attacks, incontinence and even death from a disease that is, ironically, statistically unlikely to kill them.

No-Holds-Barred indictment of PSA testing

In 1970, Richard J. Ablin discovered the PSA. In a 2010 N.Y. Times Op-Ed piece titled, "The Great Prostate Mistake," Mr. Ablin sets the record straight.

"As I've been trying to make clear for many years now, PSA testing can't detect prostate cancer and, more important, it can't distinguish between the two types of prostate cancer - the one that will kill you and the one that won't."

Ablin explains that a PSA test merely measures how much PSA or prostate specific antigen is in your blood. Although elevated levels of PSA can be detected, that alone does not necessarily indicate prostate cancer.

Why? Because common over-the-counter medications like Ibuprofen, benign prostate enlargement (an inevitable part of aging) and infections also elevate PSA levels. Men with high PSA readings can be cancer free, while those with low readings can actually have cancer!

Ablin exclaims, "I never dreamed that my discovery four decades ago would lead to such a profit-driven public health disaster. The medical community must confront reality and stop the inappropriate use of PSA screening. Doing so would save billions of dollars and rescue millions of men from unnecessary, debilitating treatments." (Emphasis added)

The respected British medical journal, Lancet, reported on 13 February 1993 early screening often leads to unnecessary treatment and "33% of autopsies show prostate cancer but only 1% die from it."

Dr. Tim O'Shea, a maverick Doctor of Chiropractic, holistic health lecturer, author and founder of the doctorwithin.com website states: "This means that the immune system can hold many problems in check, as long as it is not compromised by powerful [and/or toxic] procedures."

Gina Kolata of the New York Times cited two studies published in the March 2009 edition of the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine that concluded PSA screening increased mortality!
