According to a recent article on NaturalNews.com, “the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force released new recommendations advising against mammograms for women under 50 (and recommending only bi-annual screenings for women after that).” The risk associated with mammograms is often two-fold, as is its purpose.
The profit-hungry cancer industry has equipped their “preventive” screening process with highly advanced technologies capable of detecting miniscule benign tumors in virtually anyone and everyone. This often leads to false positives, overtreatment and misdiagnosis. You see, “cancer” is a dirty word – and with good reason. It’s important to understand that the cancer industry perpetuates this broiling fear and keeps you at their mercy, using that fear to cause widespread panic and confusion at an exponential rate. Why do you think it is that they can come up with these predictions and projected stats for how many men and women will develop cancer and how many will die from it and how many will see recurring development? It’s because they play a huge role in controlling those numbers. The cancer industry has built their dark empire on fear and lies and lined their pockets with blood money. And how do they make the big bucks? Treatment. Once they have you, hook, line and sinker, they’ll want to bombard your body with chemotherapy, radiation-based drugs and surgery, all of which are seldom justified. Desperate, frightened and confused, you more than willingly accept.
What if I told you that the cancer industry was largely contributing to that in which they claim to be “preventing?” A little hypocritical, right? Well there’s an overwhelming amount of evidence that suggests that the prolonged exposure to ionizing radiation released by screening equipment used in mammograms can cause cancer. That’s right, this “method of prevention” is actually a sleeper assassin. What happens is the body’s cells undergo mutations if exposed to high volumes of radiation. This isn’t the first time that radioactive gadgets have been linked to cancer. In fact, in the 1940’s shoe stores would use x-ray machines to show customers exactly how their foot fit to the contours of the shoe. Although gradually phased out in the 1950’s, these x-ray shoe-fitting machines left a lot of shoe shoppers with serious health conditions such as genetic mutations and cancerous lesions. The point is, it doesn’t make sense to use something to prevent cancer that has been proven to cause cancer. It’s ludicrous!
If I’m under the age of 50, but I still want to take preventive steps towards reducing my risk of developing cancer, what can I do outside of semi-annual mammograms?
We need to disinter ourselves from the fear. Fearful thinking is not clear thinking. It’s important to do a lot of research and find safe and natural alternatives to prevent diseases such as cancer, later on in life. Stress reduction techniques are a great way to ease the body and mind and help reduce inflammation and promote healthy blood flow to the body’s organs, tissues and cells. Two aspects seemingly a given yet widely neglected are fitness and nutrition. The benefits of regular exercise and a nutritious diet are boundless. Another great way to prevent cancer is to rid your body of free radicals by using antioxidants. Antioxidants eliminate free radicals within our blood stream and help to detoxify our system. Other lifestyle changes are necessary as well. Smoking and excessive drinking should be avoided at all costs. Environmental toxins play a large role in our health too. Experts suggest avoiding meats treated with synthetic hormones and antibiotics. Overexposure to harmful vapors and fumes from toxic substances can be damaging, especially when the exposure is frequent or for prolonged periods of time. Another excellent way to reduce your risk of cancer is to check your hormone levels periodically, regardless of age. It’s a great way to “be in the know” with your body. Many men and women are unaware of the body’s delicate interplay of hormones or more importantly the health risks associated with hormonal imbalance. Hormonal imbalance isn’t a disease or a disorder. It’s a part of aging and it affects millions of people each year. It’s also important to remember that hormonal imbalance doesn’t discriminate and isn’t necessarily any result or indicator of health or even aging for that matter. Many believe that our hormones are gradually declining as we age, but the reality is, as our hormones slowly decline, we age in the process – as we’re constantly aging. If your age 35 or older, you should definitely consider having your hormone levels tested. If an imbalance is present, there are steps you can take to naturally correct the issue, using alternative corrective and preventive solutions such as bioidentical hormones that can replace the hormones that your body should be producing naturally. Preventive methods such as these help can enable us to avoid many if not all of the symptoms, while at the same time significantly reducing your risk of the onset of life-threatening diseases such as cancer, heart disease and atherosclerosis.
Comprehensive diagnostic testing based on blood and saliva specimens is the only full-proof method capable of determining whether or not you’re suffering from a hormonal imbalance, but here’s a quick and easy online symptom-checker called The Hormone Balance Test. It’s 10 questions, it won’t take more than a few minutes of your time and the results speak for themselves. Based on your results you can decide for yourself if further testing is necessary.
