(NaturalNews) If you read Natural News long enough, you'll notice a familiar pattern: The things we proclaim in any given year are immediately attacked... but within five years or less the exact thing we said is confirmed by scientists or medical authorities!

Case in point: We've been warning for years about the medical hoax called "preventive double mastectomies" which have been aggressively pushed onto women by cancer surgeons who profit from the useless procedures. Now a scientific study conducted at the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor and led by researcher Sarah Hawley has found that most women who undergo double mastectomies are driven by FEAR, not actual risk, into undergoing the procedures.

To conduct the study, researchers examined data on 1,447 women who were diagnosed with breast cancer (in one breast) and who were given the option of having both breasts surgically removed. The study found that "20 percent of all women in our sample reported that they strongly considered having [double mastectomies]" and that about 8 percent ultimately agreed to do so.

This is on top of another study from 2013 that also found 70 percent of double mastectomies are medically unjustified and pointless.

The truly fascinating finding in this new study is that women who underwent genetic testing for the so-called "breast cancer gene" were 10 times more likely to agree to a double mastectomy regardless of the findings of the genetic test! The mere act of undergoing the test, it turns out, put these women on a path of extreme fear that often led to them caving in to the high-pressure sales tactics of cancer surgeons (who, let's face it, make more money from performing more surgeries regardless of whether they are medically necessary).

Fear still the best marketing tool for cancer surgeons

As I have repeatedly warned about here on Natural News, cancer doctors routinely exploit fear as a marketing tactic. While they claim their clinics and hospitals are rooted in "science," in reality their marketing campaigns are rooted in irrational fear. If the science shows a risk, they'll invoke the science. But if the science shows no risk, they'll toss the science out the window and resort to emotional exploitation and fear tactics (because that's what sells!).

Oncologists know if they can scare a woman into a state of panic, she will agree to almost anything, regardless of what the genetic tests say or the lack of cancer risk in their family history.

"Women who were very worried were very likely to get the procedure, compared to those who were less worried," said Hawley.

Cancer surgeons, it turns out, are preying upon the medical ignorance of their patients, hoping their lack of medical knowledge will result in them saying "YES" to an unnecessary procedure that does nothing to reduce cancer risk. As the NY Daily News writes: (1)

Women may have misunderstandings about their risks and an urge to do everything in their control to lessen the risk, said Dr. Ann Partridge of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.

For example, women may think the biggest risk is cancer spreading to their other breast, but the bigger risk is that it will spread to other parts of the body, Partridge, who co-wrote a commentary accompanying the new study, said.


Total abandonment of medical ethics

So why aren't cancer surgeons refusing to operate when there's no evidence of risk? An ethical surgeon would obviously say no to the procedure. But that's rarely what happens in reality.

Surgeons need the business of conducting surgery, so even when they medically know the procedure is useless, they'll do it anyway!

How's that for a total abandonment of the Hippocratic Oath? To pad their own pockets, cancer surgeons will permanently maim women and cause immense pain, suffering and disfigurement.

The state medical boards, by the way, fully endorse this unethical practice because it means more money for "the business of medicine!"

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, the internet's No. 1 natural health news website, now reaching 7 million unique readers a month.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource now featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released ten popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
