I have known this for a long time – always refused to allow this barbaric abuse to be done to my body!
A new study on mammography conducted by Peter C Gøtzsche, of the Nordic Cochrane Centre and published in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, shows that the practice of breast irradiation in an attempt to ‘protect’ against breast cancer is not only harmful but should be abandoned.
The study entitled “Mammography screening is harmful and should be abandoned,” shows that decades of screening has done nothing to reduce breast cancer mortality. This is despite the fact that millions of new and supposedly “early stage” or “stage zero” cancers are being diagnosed, which inflate survival rates.
Natural Society reports:
Previous research by the same author has concluded that even up to 52% of women undergoing this form of breast screening as recommended will be over-diagnosed; however it is hoped that as many of these women as possible obtain a second opinion.
Another study, more readily available as it was published in 2012, examined the incidence of breast cancer across a 32-year timespan, of both localized cancers and later-stage disease. They found that the introduction of mammography in the US was associated with an increase in early stage breast cancer, from 112 to 234 cases per 100,000 women.
In addition, the rate of late-stage breast cancer decreased by only about 8%, from 102 to 94 cases per 100,000. Assuming the best of mammography, 8 of the 122 new cases were women who had been saved by screening and not other factors such as a reduction in smoking rates.
