During the study, researchers found that the mortality rate was identical in all women, those who received mammography and those who did not, and even 22% of cancers detected by screening invasive breast were over-diagnosed, leading to unnecessary treatment. Therefore, he concluded that “The data suggest that the value of screening mammography should be reevaluated.”
The same conclusion, that mammography screening does not affect overall mortality was brought by researchers at the Cochrane Collaboration. Therefore, there is serious concern that this screening does not really benefit women.
The recommendations of public health agencies are updated too slowly. The American Cancer Society suggests annual mammograms for women at average risk beginning at the age of 40 years and the Working Group Preventive Services of the United States recommends a mammogram every year after 50.
because of all this, women are confused whether mammography is harmful or not, so this year, the Medical Board of Switzerland made a clear recommendation :. Mammogram no more systematic
Numerous physicians are manipulated therefore on cancer prevention, as well as propaganda of the media and the cancer industry think of the financial profit, and ignore research results.
Therefore, you should know before your next mammogram or fist:
- Mammograms offer fewer benefits than you may think
a survey showed that women believe that reduced the risk of death from breast cancer half at least, and prevented more than 80 deaths per 1,000 women screened. Actually, mammography offers the best risk reduction of 20% and in absolute to prevent a single death from breast cancer per 10,000 women terms.
- Mammography may increase the risk of breast cancer in women with BRCA 1/2 mutation
The British Medical Journal (BMJ) published the findings indicate that in the case of a specific gene mutation called BRCA1 / 2 (related to breast cancer), women are prone to radiation-induced cancer.
Women with this mutation who were exposed to radiation diagnosis before age 30 had twice the risk of developing breast cancer, compared with those without the mutated gene. The researchers also found that radiation-induced cancer dose-response, so that the risk increases with dose.
- frequent false positives
In the United States, the possibility of getting a test false positive over 10 mammograms is an alarming 58 percent to 77 percent! These results lead to stress, anxiety and psychological distress, as well as the most unnecessary tests, surgery, biopsy.
- mammograms may be ineffective in the case of dense breasts
More than half of women have dense breast tissue, so the mammography is facing difficulty in deciphering. As X-rays show the dense breast tissue and cancer target, a radiologist can miss cancer.
The law for the density of the breast has been adopted in New York, California, Virginia, Connecticut, and Texas, so that radiologists should inform patients with this type of tissue that is likely to provide absolutely no effect of the projection. In addition, also it considered this law to be approved at the federal level.
- Other screening options
You have the right to choose between other testing options as well, each with its own advantages and disadvantages . However, remember that cancer can be confirmed by biopsy only.
The waist size is related to the risk of breast cancer
Mammography is not the same as prevention, so if you are trying to prevent this deadly disease, which should focus on prevention of fact, it is not early detection. One way to avoid this is to maintain a healthy body weight, especially a healthy size of your waist.
Research has been conducted on 93,000 women mostly overweight after menopause, showed that, although the researchers measured their overall health and status of the cancer, its size skirt (which serves as an indicator of waist size) was strongly related to breast cancer risk.
-Reduce protein intake.
Researchers have noted the importance of mTOR pathways, which if activated, accelerate cancer growth. It can calm this way by reducing protein intake to one gram of protein per kilogram of lean body mass, or less than half a gram of protein per pound of lean body weight.
In most cases, this is between 40 and 70 grams of protein a day, or 2/3 to the midstream portion. In the case of pregnancy, or if you are exercising regularly, you can consume 25% more.
unfermented soy products -Avoid.
unfermented soy is rich in plant estrogens or phytoestrogens or isoflavones. Studies have shown that soy combined with human estrogen to increase proliferation of breast cells, and thus increasing the risk of mutations, while driving the phenotype associated with cancer.
Improve insulin sensitivity and leptin receptor.
Avoiding sugar and grains, and limit your intake of carbohydrates and replacing them with vegetable fibers. Moreover, regular exercise is of great benefit.
Exercise reduces cancer risk as it boosts insulin levels down, and regulates insulin levels. Also it triggers apoptosis (programmed cell death), leading to the death of cancer cells. The decrease in body fat leads to a decrease in the number of tumors, such as exercise reduces levels of estrogen, and thus prevents breast cancer.
In addition to exercise, try to limit their time sitting three hours a day while taking 10,000 steps a day during their hours of non-exercise.
Maintain a healthy body weight.
Proper diet and regular exercise will provide great results. The loss of excess body fat will help as fat produces estrogen.
-Avoid estrogen-like compounds such as BPA, phthalates and other xenoestrogens because they increase the risk of breast cancer.
replacement therapy -Avoid synthetic hormones , which are fed by estrogen numerous forms of breast cancer, and the Journal of the National Cancer Institute published a study he indicated that breast cancer rates fell along decreased use of hormone replacement therapy.
In the case of the symptoms of excessive menopause, you can try therapy bioidentical hormone replacement instead that includes identical hormones molecularly that occur in the body, and do not cause destruction in the system.
Curcumin is the active ingredient of turmeric, which has proved extremely beneficial in the case of cancer. Moreover, research has discovered that it has powerful therapeutic properties in preventing metastasis of breast cancer. However, note that it is not easily absorbed by the body, it must be combined with other ingredients such as black pepper.
‘You should drink half a liter to a liter of juice organic green vegetable every day. Thus, it should introduce numerous anti-cancer nutrients in the body.
-You must consume a lot of high quality omega-3 fats of animal origin, such as krill oil. One of the most important factors in cancer incidence is, in fact, deficiency of Omega-3.
-Avoid or limit alcohol intake to one drink a day.
-Avoid charring your meats.
coal or flame grilled meat is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer, such as baking, broiling or frying starchy foods have been found to lead to the creation of a carcinogen called acrylamide, which also increases the risk of cancer.
-Iodine deficiency is associated with certain cancers According to Dr. David Brownstein the author of the book iodine :. Why You Need It, Why you can not live without it, suggests iodine in the case of breast cancer because it has strong anti-cancer properties and leads to cell death in cells of breast and thyroid cancer.
-Avoid electromagnetic fields since they raise the risk of cancer.
