Got your lucky pink ribbon handy?? All the money and PR pushing women to get mammograms as a form of early detection....so they can save their lives by getting the essential surgery and Chemo....GOOD NEWS.... May not be the best advice after all. It appears that the human body may be dealing with some cancers with out intervention. A Norwegian study reported by JAMA says
..."Breast cancer rates increased significantly in four Norwegian counties after women there began undergoing mammography every two years, according to a report in the November 24 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine, one of the JAMA/Archives journals. Rates among regularly screened women remained higher than rates among women of the same age who were screened only once after six years, suggesting that some of the cancers detected by mammography may have spontaneously regressed had they not been discovered and treated."
Those fringe medical professionals and quacks have been warning us for some time that mammograms may not only agravate breast cancer calls, but may cause cancer. Turns out that this study shows some breast cancers may go away on their own....here is what the Journal said
...."The findings do not answer the question of whether mammograms prevent deaths from breast cancer, the authors note. "Instead, our findings simply provide new insight on what is arguably the major harm associated with mammographic screening, namely, the detection and treatment of cancers that would otherwise regress," they conclude."
Sherry Baker writing for Natural News says..."Simply put, it appears that some invasive breast cancers simply go away on their own, healed by the body's own immune system."
Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death for women in the USA, this does not mean we stop treating but gives us hopefull insight into the nature of this type of cancer
JAMA also said.....
..."This does not mean breast cancer should be ignored or not treated. After all, breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among American women. But the extraordinarily good and hopeful news is that it appears invasive breast cancer sometimes can be destroyed naturally -- at least in some people -- by the body's own innate defenses."
