Mammograms news, articles and information:
|2/27/2014 - Mammograms are so widely used and promoted for breast cancer diagnosis that you would think it is very reliable. That, unfortunately, is far from the truth.
False-positives This means mammograms suggest women have cancer when in fact they do not.
In a Swedish study published in the British Medical...|
|2/21/2014 - A large and comprehensive study which looked at 90,000 Canadian women aged 40 to 59 for 25 years has cast fresh doubts on the usefulness of mammography. It found that mammograms did not lower the death rate from breast cancer. And it didn't reduce the death rate from all causes, either.
|2/20/2014 - Besides subjecting women unnecessarily to higher doses of radiation, a new study has found that yearly mammograms don't even cut death rates -- which was one of the primary reasons why the medical industry recommends getting one annually.
According to researchers in Canada, the new study confirmed...|
|2/18/2014 - Various researchers and experts have highlighted several issues and limitations with using mammograms as the main method of breast cancer diagnosis. A viable alternative is thermography. Thermograms are safe, nontoxic, highly accurate and inexpensive.
What is thermography? Thermography is carried...|
|2/16/2014 - Mammograms are widely touted as an effective breast cancer screening tool. But some research and experts suggest that it could be causing more harm than good.
Increases cancer risk In undergoing mammograms, women are exposed to radiation. And radiation, as we know, is a cause of cancer.
|5/28/2013 - The studies just keep rolling on in with more and more evidence showing that the breast cancer screening ritual known as mammography is not everything that it is cracked up to be. One of the latest studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), for instance, analyzed more than 30 years'...|
|5/14/2013 - The Susan G. Komen for breast cancer awareness reports on their site that breast cancer will strike more than 1.3 million women annually over the next 20 years. They are proud to report that 70 percent of women 40 and older receive regular mammograms now. What they aren't telling the public is that...|
|1/7/2013 - 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...|
|12/3/2012 - It's a long-simmering question that has now turned into a full-blown controversy: What is the real value of mammograms if 33 percent of the cancers found during the procedure aren't deadly but lead to poisoning chemotherapy or worse, breast removal, anyway?
A new study that examined three decades'...|
|11/27/2012 - Mammography is a cruel medical hoax. As I have described here on Natural News many times, the primary purpose of mammography is not to "save" women from cancer, but to recruit women into false positives that scare them into expensive, toxic treatments like chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.
|10/24/2012 - The annual ritual of radioactive breast poisoning known as mammography has taken a huge hit in the scientific community, as a new study out of Seattle, Washington, recently found that simple ultrasounds, which emit harmless sound waves rather than ionizing radiation, work far better than mammograms...|
|9/10/2012 - Women with a family history of breast cancer are often encouraged to be tested to see if they carry a mutation in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes which control the suppression of breast and ovarian cancer. If they do carry a mutated gene, they are often encouraged to have mammograms at far younger-than-normal...|
|8/20/2012 - The wild claims constantly being made by the breast cancer group Susan G. Komen for the Cure about the supposed benefits of mammogram screenings are patently deceptive and untrue. This is according to two distinguished professors who published a fascinating new review in the British Medical Journal...|
|2/5/2012 - The media is abuzz with chatter about Susan G. Komen for the Cure's flip-flopping on the issue of whether or not to fund Planned Parenthood, the controversial reproductive health services group that provides abortions for women, in order for it to offer breast exams and promote mammograms. But the real...|
|10/18/2011 - According to mainstream medicine, mammograms are the key to surviving breast cancer because they supposedly catch the disease early for quick treatment. What this advice invariably leaves out is evidence that exposure to the radiation used in the tests may actually cause breast cancer in some women.
|10/12/2011 - Treating cancer is BIG business in America -- in fact, it's a $200 billion a year business. Yet 98 percent of conventional cancer treatments not only FAIL miserably, but are also almost guaranteed to make cancer patients sicker.
What's worse: The powers are suppressing natural cancer cures that could...|
|9/19/2011 - Mammograms, long touted as essential to early detection of breast cancer in order to help women avoid surgery, may actually result in unnecessary mastectomies, according to a recent Norwegian study. The study suggests that mastectomy rates rise as the numbers of women who receive the screening procedure...|
|7/7/2011 - With radiation levels increasing accross the entire northern hemisphere the radiation your doctor uses takes on a new dangerous meaning. Physicians know that radiation is dangerous but they cannot help themselves, they love to use radiation both in testing and in treatment. Modifying physician behavior...|
|3/9/2011 - In my experience, it's not often that pro-mammogram literature or textbooks tell the truth about the limitations of mammography so imagine my surprise when I came across this section in the 1,100 page textbook I'm studying called Breast Imaging by Dr. Daniel B. Kopans.
"Because screening does not...|
|12/10/2010 - Millions of U.S. women are apparently ignoring government recommendations and taking breast health into their own hands. A new report presented at the 33rd annual Cancer Therapy & Research Center / American Association for Cancer Research (CTRC-AACR) San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium has found that...|
|10/16/2010 - Mammograms deliver overwhelmingly more false positive results than true positives in women under the age of 40, according to a new study conducted by researchers from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.
In a false positive result,...|
|9/24/2010 - You now have another good reason to skip that next mammogram, based on new research out of Norway. According to findings by Dr. Mette Kalager and his team from Oslo University Hospital, getting a mammogram appears to cut the risk of dying from breast cancer by meager two percent at best -- a percentage...|
|8/12/2010 - The American Cancer Society (ACS) is involved financially with manufacturers of mammography devices, tainting its cancer screenings with conflict of interest, cancer prevention experts Samuel S. Epstein and Rosalie Bertell have charged.
Epstein is a medical doctor and the chairman of the Cancer Prevention...|
|4/7/2010 - A 2005 study concluded that a push in Denmark to screen large numbers of women for breast cancer with mammography had reduced breast cancer deaths in Copenhagen by a whopping 25 percent. Sounds like proof that regular mammograms are truly life-savers, right? Wrong. Scientists from the Nordic Cochrane...|
|2/5/2010 - Here's a story about the mammography industry that sounds almost too crazy -- and too greedy -- to be true. But the facts are documented in a new study by University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) researchers. It turns out that unneeded, expensive mammograms are being pushed on elderly women...|
|12/2/2009 - Ever since the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force took a look, finally, at the scientific evidence and announced new recommendations earlier this month for routine mammograms -- specifically that women under 50 should avoid them and women over 50 should only get them every other year -- the reactions...|
|11/23/2009 - The cancer industry has blatantly abandoned science these past two weeks by insisting women under 50 should receive annual mammograms even though the industry's own scientific task force concluded that such screenings result in too many false positives. Essentially, the U.S. Preventive Services Task...|
|11/20/2009 - There's a lot of talk about mammograms and cancer screenings this week. A U.S. government task force altered its recommendations, saying that women under 50 should receive no mammograms at all because the risk of harm far outweighs any promise of saving lives. This, in turn, led to a very vocal backlash...|
|11/19/2009 - 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...|

|11/18/2009 - Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society, recently participated in an interview with the New York Times concerning a Journal of the American Medical Association analysis of breast and prostate cancer screening. The study questioned the legitimacy of such screenings in saving...|
|10/26/2009 - Ah ... ladies ... can you imagine the freedom of life without mammograms? That yearly dread - the compression, the anxiety, the direct radiation to delicate tissue - may all be a thing of the past.
A new blood test is in development that may prove to be even more effective than mammograms. Mammograms...|
|3/4/2009 - A new report released by the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement reveals that Americans' exposure to radiation has increased more than 600 percent over the last three decades. Most of that increase has come from patients' exposure to radiation through medical imaging scans such...|
|2/8/2009 - What if a diagnostic test actually triggers the life-threatening disease it is supposed to detect?

|11/24/2008 - A report just published in the Journal of the American Medical Association's Archives of Internal Medicine (Arch Intern Med. 2008;168:2302-2303) reaches a startling conclusion. Breast cancer rates increased significantly in four Norwegian counties after women there began getting mammograms every...|
|11/19/2008 - It takes a long wait to get a mammogram these days, sometimes up to a month. The waiting rooms are jammed despite the opening of new mammography centers.

|10/23/2007 - Once in a great while, a report emerges from the medical establishment that's so myopic and devoid of wisdom that it boggles the mind. Today, a new candidate for the "most ignorant medical advice" emerges from none other than the Metropolitan Chicago Breast Cancer Task Force -- a group of over 100 doctors...|
|2/14/2007 - An increasing number of doctors are contesting the claim that annual mammograms decrease women's risk of dying from breast cancer.

|11/23/2003 8:18:25 PM - Mammograms are one of the great myths of modern medicine: they're extremely unreliable and give false positives, especially in the U.S. where intepretation standards vary widely.
