If mammograms saved lives, why would a major medical board ABOLISH this test? Studies from all over the world, including the U.S., show that there is no benefit and no lives saved by mammography! This should drive everyone to watch this video.
Studies that do not control for over-diagnosis and over-treatment of “non-harmful”/ “non-deadly” cancers falsely show a benefit and sadly these studies are used to manipulate populations to pay and get this worthless test.
5-year survival also causes a false appearance of early detection benefit, but yet medical experts, the ones not bought and paid by the pharmaceutical industry have shown time and time again that we are not saving lives.
In fact, mammography has been shown to cause cancer and cause many women to be unnecessarily treated with chemo, radiation, and surgery, all of which can cause cancer. Many of these women who are falsely diagnosed with cancer because of mammography, will sadly die or develop serious health problems because of these testing and treatments.
Like the Swiss Medical Board stated, “women deserve to be told the truth.”
