EARLY DETECTION, EARLY DEATH: Mammograms linked to 84% higher breast cancer death rate

•, Ethan Huff

Because of the very high rate of false positives they produce, mammograms end up killing, it would seem, many more women than would otherwise die from breast cancer had they never participated in the mammography racket.

Mammograms produce trauma in patients, both physically in breast tissue and also psychologically, emotionally and even spiritually in women who end up being told that they must undergo even more invasive "treatments" in order to survive.

The pressure that mammography puts on breast tissue can be a cause of cancer in and of itself, not to mention all the chemotherapy, radiation and surgery that typically ensues. It is a horrifically traumatic experience for women that leaves many of them scarred for life, assuming they even survive.

(Related: Back in 2016, some surgeons published a study showing that mammography is neither safe nor effective, and that women should opt out of participating in the "outdated" practice.)

Cancer is a for-profit industry
Mammography is also dangerous in that the primary modality utilized is x-ray technology, which radiates breast tissue on top of the machine physically pressing it down. The gamma rays alone are a known breast carcinogen that is especially concerning for women with so-called BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene "mutations."

The official recommendation from the U.S. Preventive Services Guidelines pushes women to start getting screened through mammography every other year starting at age 40.

"These guidelines put millions more healthy women at risk of radiation-induced adverse breast changes, as well as the psychobiological harms addressed in this article," contends Sayer Ji of GreenMedInfo.

Pretty much across the board, the medical establishment tries to pretend as though mammography is risk-free, ignoring many known risks such as x-ray radiation exposure, false positive diagnoses, overdiagnosis, and of course all the invasive "treatments" that follow.
