I am going to show you a study which will blow your mind. A study that shows, in plain English, that our coveted mammograms just don’t work. I am going to contend that mammograms are a big, for-profit, machine that do nothing to help women evade the dark clutches of cancer.
As many as 60,000 American women each year are told they have a very early stage of breast cancer — Stage 0, as it is commonly known — a possible precursor to what could be a deadly tumor.
Coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10, is an essential nutrient known for its cardio-protective properties and is a substance found in every cell of the body.
After a routine mammogram found that she had stage 0 breast cancer, TV chef and cookbook author Sandra Lee started soapboxing.
In 1966, Otto Warburg, a Nobel Prize-winning doctor from Germany, put the relationship between cancer and oxygen this way: "Cancer cells meet their energy needs by fermentation, not oxidation. Thus, they are dependent upon glucose and a high oxygen environment is toxic to them."

For many breast cancer patients in Brazil, such words ring true, as researchers discovered that providing them with nutritional information may play a role in preventing a recurrence of the disease. In Brazil, where the five-year survival rate is only 58.4 percent, the finding is considered an especially important way of raising health awareness and, ultimately, helping to keep the cancer at bay.(1)
Lead researcher Elaine Hardman, Ph.D., compared the effects of a standard diet and a diet containing walnuts throughout the lifespan of mice. The quantity of walnuts used in the study was the equivalent of 2 ounces of walnuts per day for a human.
