Scientist Reveals Shocking Dangers of Mammography Overtreatment

Dr. Gilbert Welch discusses the findings of the November 22, 2012 New England Journal of Medicine article “Effect of Three Decades of Screening Mammography on Breast Cancer Incidence” that he co-authored.

A disturbing new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine has brought mainstream attention to the fact that mammography screenings have caused millions of US women to suffer unnecessary surgeries and chemotherapy and radiation treatments over the past 30 years.
A growing body of research suggests that x-ray mammography is planting the seeds of radiation-induced cancer within the breasts of thousands of women who subject themselves to them, annually, without knowledge of their true health risks.
A new study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute has found that more frequent mammography results in dramatically increased rates of false positives and unnecessary biopsies.

Many of the drugs used to treat breast cancer today are probable or known cancer-causing agents. Tamoxifen, for instance, is classified by the World Health Organization as a “human carcinogen,” but recent news headlines praised extended use of this drug for “saving lives.” It is obvious that the mainstream media has swallowed the tamoxifen-flavored Kool-Aid … will you?
