Ever wondered about the safety and accuracy of mammograms? Are you aware of possible alternatives such as breast thermography?
Please pass on the following information on to as many women as possible.
Breast Thermography clinic coming to Dawson Creek to do breast/cranial thermography Sept 21/22, 2014. Call Cindy Peever, R.N. at 250-596-9119 and leave a message or contact her at email@example.com or www.thermographynorthernbc.com.
Breast Thermography is a form of breast screening using digital infrared imaging. No squeezing of breasts required, no radiation yet very reliable in early detection of abnormal breast tissue. It provides the earliest evidence of breast disease with an accuracy of 90%. This means in 90% of the cases the scan accurately indicates presence or absence of dis-ease. It shows the function, physiology and metabolism of breast tissue and gives a picture of the cell activity in breast tissue. Usually, abnormal cells like cancer cells are hotter than normal cells. A breast thermography scan shows the heat (temperature) difference between normal breast tissue and problematic areas.
Breast thermography is a very reliable tool in early detection for abnormal cell development; however a small percentage of cancers are non-hypervascular which means they do not produce extra heat.
Mammograms on the other hand use x-rays to detect a mass. X-rays don?t pass through the mass as easily as through normal breast tissue. Mammograms work best for soft post-menopausal breast tissue and for slow growing tumors. They are not effective for young, dense breast tissue, large breasts, fibro-cystic breasts, breasts with breast implants, pregnant and breast feeding women as well as women on hormone replacement therapy. The rate of false-positive readings with about 25% is high (suggested disease where there is none) as is the false negative rate of about 20% (missed tumors).
Dr. Mercola (www.mercola.com) just posted an article about mammograms providing a wealth of information.
?A 2012 report stated that 38,000 to 43,000 deaths occur annually in Canada in connection with health-care delivery. That is the equivalent of 80 jumbo jets crashing every year – one every five days or so. According to the author William Charney, a veteran health and safety officer in health care and author of numerous books on health-care safety, the actual number of deaths is undoubtedly greater because of the high rates of non-reporting.?
I have come across statistics televised on national television in the US a few years ago that were even higher (1-3 jumbo jets/day). Numbers like this raise many concerns and questions. For example why is the health food industry so unfairly targeted these days with many products being taken away from the consumer?
Even though medicine has lots of positive practices to offer and has been saving many people?s lives it is advisable to be aware of preventative measures a person can take when dependent on the medical profession for health care. The article ?PREVENTIVE MEASURES FOR MEDICAL MISTAKES? HTTP://WWW.HANS.ORG/MAGAZINE  published by HANS (Health Action Network Society) provides some great suggestions.
