The previous Great NEWS post asked Is High Fructose Corn Syrup a Health Hazard and today we ask Are Mammograms Health Hazards? This post is mostly for women and it is important for men to read and share with the women they love. How many times have we heard the warning that ionizing radiation is harmful to humans? Yet many of us are receiving excess ionizing radiation from CT scans, flying, mammograms, PET scans and x-rays. Over time ionizing radiation exposure can cause damage. This post will answer: Are Mammograms Health Hazards and reveal how to avoid and minimize excess ionizing radiation.
The Great NEWS Coach Health Hazards series is designed to alert us to risks that rob us of our happiness and health. Mammograms are a major contributor to excess ionizing radiation as well as super stressful. Ionizing radiation can cause damage to cells, DNA, glands, immune system and tissue.
Doctors, researchers and scientists have known for many decades that the more ionizing radiation we are exposed to, the greater our risk for advanced: aging, cancer, disease, DNA, genetic issues, hormone issues, immune dysfunction, skin damage and tissue damage. I am not a doctor and never offer medical advice so read to the end to learn more from well respected doctors.
Common sense tells us to play it safe and eliminate and reduce excess ionizing radiation from our life. Unfortunately many women have misplaced their trust in people pushing money making mammograms and replaced their common sense with compliance.
Are Mammograms Safe?
While the majority in the medical industry will tell you that mammograms are safe there are many reasons and many resources that indicate they may not be as safe as reported. Here are some of the main concerns to consider carefully before undergoing mammograms:
- Ionizing radiation is known to cause cellular and genetic damage and over time this can lead to disease and health problems.
- Excess ionizing radiation has been identified as a major health hazard so it is important to minimize our exposure and look for safer alternatives.
- Radiation has a cumulative effect and can increase our risk over time.
- Radiation can cause our cells to mutate.
- Radiation can damage our DNA.
- Radiation can cause cancer.
- Radiation can damage our endocrine glands which disrupt our hormone production.
- Radiation can cause free radical damage.
Remember diagnostic centers, doctors, hospitals and medical equipment companies make billions of dollars from breast diagnosis and disease each year. Biopsies, cancer treatment, chemotherapy, consultations, exams, lab work, hospital stays, medical diagnosis, oncology, plastic surgery, prescription drugs, radiation therapy and tumor surgery generate big bucks and are big business for all providers involved.
The healthcare or more accurately the sickcare industry is probably the largest sector of the economy driving billions if not trillions of dollars annually. It would require a person to dig deep to extract and extrapolate the full dollar value buried in other sectors like: construction, finance, insurance, manufacturing, professional, retail trade, services, scientific and wholesale trade that could be traced back to costs associated for administration, doctors, hospitals, labs, medical equipment, pharmaceuticals and staffing directed towards health care.
The western medical model is primarily designed around a constant stream of income from women coming in for baby, body and breast exams. These companies depend on regular annual and monthly visits in order to sell their consumable products and services regardless of the consequences and costs to you. They make money when you are healthy and they make even more money when you are unhealthy.
They make many thousands of dollars as they run a checklist of diagnostic procedures and tests chasing the effects rather than focusing on the real cause which is normally centered on behaviors, emotions, lifestyle, nutrition, stress and toxins. Therefore the system is a fear based model that keeps you coming back regularly in order to stay healthy while always on the look out for what could go wrong next. The system is rigged to keep you in a constant state of fear and stress which is the exact opposite of a happy and healthy life.
It is up to us and our diligent health advocate to be on guard and vigilant in order to educate and empower ourselves with the latest developments in health and well being. Your health advocate is a trusted person (other than your doctor or medical provider) who has the commitment, confidence and conviction to ask the tough questions and champion your best interest. We all deserve and need a health advocate during our time of medical intervention don’t we?
Many women feel conflicted and confused about self administered breast exams, medical exams and mammograms. Lifestyle and self exam is the key to early detection. Women are also suggested to get regular mammograms because they may miss something. The stress usually increases greatly if you find something suspicious and go to the doctor who may really scare you with the possibilities, probabilities, procedures and protocols to follow next. Once you are caught in the trap of: if this happens then you must do that, it is easy to feel confused, over whelmed and worried about cancer and the need for a mammogram to learn more. From that point on it can be extremely difficult dealing with the allopathic medical matrix.
We must be ready to ask better questions and demand better options to prevent harmful products and toxic procedures from being used that may damage our body and wreck havoc with our health. This requires us to do our homework and research in advance so we make informed choices and decisions. When we drop our guard we open our self up to health hazards that harm our health and well being.
While our body does need maintenance and monitoring on a regular basis we must be careful to choose the best resources and sources to assist us with sustaining optimal health and peak performance. Unfortunately many women feel too backlogged and busy to do the reading and research necessary to be current on medical procedures and protocols. As a result it is easier to keep doing what they have been doing and trusting that things will work out. Unfortunately the times and things are changing at a faster rate than we feel able to keep up with. Mammograms are part of the old medical model and thermography is part of the updated and upgraded modern medical model that many doctors are reluctant to embrace and endorse for many reasons.
Unfortunately most women are too accommodating and compliant when it comes to mammograms. As a result they are exposing themselves to many dangerous and harmful side effects from the ionizing radiation, mashing and smashing that occur. Not to mention the fear and stress that happens before, during and after the exam while your mind imagines the worse possible scenario of the “Big C” diagnosis. They compound the fear in our minds by: showing bald women and wigs, discussing mastectomies and plastic surgery, showing survival statistics, talking about motherless children while offering surgery, chemotherapy and radiation recommendations as the only options to prevent women from dying of breast cancer. BTW and FYI there are many other alternative, complementary and holistic options to consider and it is up to you to do so. Ask and you will find.
To understand why mammograms are so harmful we must first look at the entire process. Mammograms are tough on the body, mind and spirit because they are: Expensive, Fear based, Ionizing radiation, Intimidating, Inaccurate, Non conclusive, Non-educational and non-empowering, Painful, Stressful, Uncomfortable, Unnatural, Unreliable, Vulnerable to misinterpretation
