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' worth of data on mammography and found that nearly 1.5 million women have been needlessly treated for cancers that were not at all harmful or that technically did not even exist.
The cancer industry has apparently become so desperate to recruit new customers that it is now resorting to what can only be described as a type of medical date rape. A number of hospitals and cancer centers across the country are reportedly now holding community-driven "mammogram parties," a deceptive cancer marketing scheme that basically entails deliberately getting women tipsy or drunk on alcohol with their friends and neighbors in order to entice them into getting medically molested via mammograms.
In a finding that has researchers vexed, researchers are discovering that both female and male members of the U.S. armed forces are experiencing a rise in breast cancer.
If you or a woman close to you were advised to have a double mastectomy performed in order to prevent breast cancer, shouldn't another option be available? Medical mutilations have been performed lately on women told they are genetically predisposed to getting breast cancer.
There is nothing sexy about a woman with breast cancer having to have one or both of her breasts surgically removed as part of a humiliating mastectomy, or having to undergo toxic chemotherapy and radiation treatments that leave her bald and severely immuno-compromised, not to mention potentially even dead. But this is the message being sent by the cancer industry these days with its numerous sexualization of breast cancer campaigns, which crudely reference breasts using all sorts of erotic terms and off-color imagery.
Every year October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we find the country awash in a sea of pink from shore to shore – from pink ribbons and donation boxes to pink products, charity promotions, celebrities by the score and even pink cleats on NFL players. Tragically, few people are aware of the dark history of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) and the players past and present who have misused it to direct people and funds away from finding a true cure while covering up their own roles in causing and profiting from cancer.
Researchers have been working for years to determine whether genetic glitches are driving high rates of especially deadly breast cancer in black women in the United States. Now, the most comprehensive genetic study yet found that one in five black women already diagnosed with breast cancer and referred for genetic counseling had at least one of 18 genetic mutations known to increase the risk of the disease.
Revealing new data from the charity Cancer Research UK reports that a record number of women under the age of 50 are being diagnosed with breast cancer.
