For Breast Cancer Care, Radiation of Whole Breast May Be Best
TUESDAY, May 1 -- Women who receive a type of partial-breast radiation called brachytherapy may go on to have higher rates of breast cancer recurrence and side effects such as breast pain and infection than women receiving whole-breast radiation, a new study indicates.

For Brest Cancer Care, radiation of any kind may be hazardous to your good health.
Doctors and Scientists have pointed out the significant cumulative risks of radiation from routine mammography and its promotion of breast cancer.
Science has proven Radiation Risks from routine mammography poses significant cumulative risks of initiating and promoting breast cancer. Doctors or scientists, who promote Radiation as a means of early detection of breast cancer do not support those facts. Science has also proven there are False Positives and False Negatives, with twenty percent of women who receive negative results, suggesting they do not have breast cancer, actually do have breast cancer, which Radiation failed to detect.
In July1995, the Medical Journal Lancet wrote, the benefit of Mammograms is marginal, the harm caused is substantial and the costs incurred are enormous.
Many experts warn that the radiation in mammography actually increases the risk of breast cancer. Dr. Russell Blaylock, MD, suggests annual mammography increases the risk of breast cancer by 2% each year. We also have the National Cancer Institute (NCI) suggesting mammography is especially dangerous for younger women, which could cause 75 cases of breast cancer for every 15 it identifies. With those statistics its easy to see why the U.S. Government has called for a reduction in mammography, which has increased medical care costs in the U.S. Even Dr. Charles Simone, a former clinical associate in immunology and pharmacology at the NCI, says,Mammograms increase the risk for developing breast cancer and raise the risk of spreading or metastasizing (the spread of a disease from one organ or part to another non-adjacent organ or part) an existing growth".
To continue to promote Radiation, or Mammograms, when the facts are all too clear the procedure is a hazard to womens good health, is to continue to seek profits at all costs.
To all of the women afraid of this monster, Breast Cancer, learn as much as you can about your Lymphatic System and how it works. Be mindful that when a Lymph Node is clogged, that clogged lump could be a false positive and the clogged Lymph Node could be unclogged with proper diet. Just because its a lump doesnt mean its cancer.
