ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE - NATURAL CURES

Posted on 10 April, 2015 at 10:39 Comments comments (68)
 
ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE

We all know someone who has suffered with Dementia. Alzheimer's is a build up of proteins in the brain to form structures called 'Plaques' and 'tangles'. This leads to the loss of connections between nerve cells and eventually to the death of nerve cells and loss of brain tissue..

When there is a shortage of them, the signals are not transmitted as effectively. Current treatments for Alzheimer's Disease can help boost the levels of chemical messengers in the brain. These chemical messengers help transmit signals around the brain.

Treatments can help boost the levels of chemical messengers to the brain, which can help with some of the symptoms. Alzheimer's is a progressive disease. This means gradually overtime, more parts of the brain are damaged. As this happens, more symptoms develop. They become more severe.

Symptoms: Alzheimer's disease are generally mild to start with, but they get worse overtime and start to interfere with daily life. It's important to remember everyone's unique, so common symptoms may vary to the individual. Earliest signs - memory lapse..losing items such as keys, glasses, struggle to find the right word in a conversation or forget someone's name, forget about recent conversations or events, get lost in familiar place or on a familiar journey, forget appointments or anniversaries.

These may be affected : language, visuospatial skills, organising, concentrating, planning, orientation. They may become irritable, or depressed. Losing interests in hobbies abd activities. 

It is extremely rare to inherit Alzheimer's.

Here are 5 Herbs for Alzheimer's Disease:

Lemon Balm (Stimulates receptors)

Sage (Inhibits acetylcholinesterase in a similar way to Alzheimer's drug)

Gingko Biloba (Known to support blood flow, and oxygen to the brain, Gingko may promote cognition )

Cat's Claw (It dialates blood vessels, which might make it helpful herb for Alzheimer's diseased patients, who don't get enough blood flow and therefore oxygen in their brain cells)

Ginseng (In addition to diabetes, cancer, colds and flu, ginseng extract reduced cell death in Alzheimer's disease in animal studies, so may be affective for humans)

In addition to consulting an holistic physician and utilizing these key herbs, those with early signs of dementia or Alzheimer's should lower their stress levels, consume more Vit. E and include more raw organic virgin coconut oil into their diets.

CANDIDA

CANDIDA (YEAST)

What is Candida? It is a fungus, which is a form of yeast. 

Very small amounts of it live in your mouth and intestines. It's job is to aid digestion and nutrient absorption but, when overproduced, candida breaks down the wall of the intestine and penetrates the bloodstream releasing toxic by products into your body and causing leaky gut.

This can lead to many health problems ranging from digestive problems to depression.

Thrives and survives on sugar, therefore sugars and sugar-producing carbohydrates must be eliminated from your diet. Limited amounts of sugar that comes from natural foods, such as fruits are allowed.

Yeast free supplements are useful in the diet. Foods containing white vinegar, such as: salad dressings, mustard, should be eliminated from your diet. All forms of alcohol, beers, wines should also be left out of your diet. Carbohydrates found in bread, rolls also should go. 

In addition mold-containing foods such as : cheese should be avoided. Foods that promote mold growth should also be eliminated such as: cured pork, bacon, mushrooms, pickled fish, and meats, soy sauce, malt and foods that contain malt as well as canned tomatoes. 

Fresh tomatoes can be consumed while on the diet. Eliminate ALL processed sugars, including: bottled, canned, frozen fruit juices, dried fruits, honey, brown sugar, maple syrup and anything that contains high-fructose corn syrup. 

Foods that are acceptable on a candida elimination diet include ALL fresh vegetables, proteins found in meats, and eggs. Complex carbohydrates are acceptable, like those found in barley, buckwheat, rice and couscous, whole grain oats and beans but should be limited to 15 grams per meal. Fresh fruits are acceptable but grapes, prunes, raisins, dates and figs should be avoided. 

Individuals who are attempting to cleanse themselves of systemic candida should avoid all processed foods.

All the best on your cleansing journey.

More health tips coming very soon.. stay tuned.
Stay blessed.

'SO-CALLED' MIRACLE CURES: CHEMOTHERAPY

Posted on 13 February, 2015 at 5:29 Comments comments (47)
CHEMOTHERAPY
IF ANTIBIOTICS AND STEROIDS ARE THE SHERMAN TANKS OF MEDICAL CHEMICAL WARFARE, CHEMOTHERAPY FOR CANCER IS ITS NUCLEAR HEAD.

NO OTHER ILLNESS IS SUBJECT TO THE SOPHISTICATED COMBINATIONS OF CHEMICALS THAT HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED FOR CANCER TREATMENT.

CHEMOTHERAPY WAS FIRST PROPOSED AS A TREATMENT FOR CANCER DIRECTLY AFTER WORLD WAR 2, WHEN RESEARCH ON MUSTARD GAS DEMONSTRATED THAT IT HAS THE ABILITY TO KILL LIVING CELLS, PARTICULARLY THOSE WHICH RAPIDLY DIVIDE , SUCH AS THOSE IN THE INTESTINAL TRACT, BONE MARROW AND LYMPH SYSTEM.

DOCTORS SOON CAME UP WITH THE IDEA THAT THEY COULD USE MUSTARD GAS TO POISON CANCER, WHICH CONSTITUTES THE MOST RAPIDLY DIVIDING OF CELLS OF ALL. IN FACT, MANY OF THE DRUGS WE USE TODAY ARE CLOSE COUSINS OF MUSTARD GAS - ONE REASON WE FIND THEM SO TOXIC.

IN THE EARLY 70'S, MEDICINE DISCOVERED THAT CERTAIN RARE CANCERS WOULD RESPOND TO CHEMOTHERAPY AND RESULT IN A PERSON LIVING LONGER.

THESE INCLUDE COMBINATIONS OF DRUGS FOR HODGKIN'S DISEASE, CERTAIN NON-HODGKIN LYMPHOMA'S SOME GERM CELL TUMOURS, TESTICULAR CANCER AND CERTAIN CANCERS IN CHILDREN, SUCH AS WILM'S TUMOUR, ACUTE LYMPHOCYCTIC, LEUKAEMIA AND CHORIOCARCINOMA, IN WHICH FOETAL CELLS TRANSFORM INTO CANCER AND THREATEN THE MOTHER'S LIFE.

HOWEVER, 25 YEARS LATER IT IS SAFE TO SAY THAT VIRTUALLY NO PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE SINCE THEN-US PRESIDENT RICHARD NIXON DECLARED THE ;WAR ON CANCER' IN 1971. NO CANCER INCURABLE THEN IS CURABLE TODAY.

CHEMOTHERAPY'S MODEST SUCCESSES ARE ALMOST IDENTICAL TO WHAT THEY WERE THEN. SINCE THEN, ALL THE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF RESEARCH WE'VE THROWN AT CANCER HAVEN'T INFLUENCED SURVIVAL ONE LITTLE BIT. FOR MOST OF TODAY'S COMMON SOLID CANCERS, THE ONES THAT CAUSE 90 PER CENT OF THE CANCER DEATHS EVERY YEAR - BREAST, MOST LUNG, COLON AND RECTAL, SKIN CANCER, LIVER AND PANCREATIC AND BLADDER - CHEMOTHERAPY HAS NEVER BEEN PROVED TO DO ANY GOOD AT ALL.

'SO-CALLED' MIRACLE CURES: ANTIBIOTICS

Posted on 13 February, 2015 at 5:21 Comments comments (54)
HERE IS SOME MORE FASCINATING EXCERPTS FROM LYN MCTAGGART'S BOOK ' WHAT DOCTORS DON'T TELL YOU..'ENJOY THE READ!
 
"I OWE MY LIFE TO ANTIBIOTICS. IN 1942, WHEN MY MOTHER WAS 24, HER DENTIST UNWISELY EXTRACTED A TOOTH WHILE SHE HAD THE FLU. WITHIN DAYS HER NECK BALLOONED WITH A STREPTOCOCCUS INFECTION, AND SHE WAS RUSHED TO HOSPITAL. MY FATHER, THEN HER FIANCE, WEPT HELPLESSLY AT HER BEDSIDE WHILE PRIESTS FILED PAST HIM AFTER ADMINISTERING THE LAST RITES.
 
AND THEN THE WONDER DRUG ARRIVED. AS A LAST RESORT, MY MOTHER WAS GIVEN PENICILLIN, STILL IN EXPERIENTIAL USE THEN. WITHIN A DAY OR TWO THE SWELLING THAT HAD ALMOST OBSCURED HER FACE SIMPLY MELTED AWAY. MY ORDINARILY DOUBTING FATHER RUSHED OFF TO CHURCH AND HUMBLY KNELT BEFORE THE ALTER, CONVINCED THAT HE HAD WITNESSED A MIRACLE.
 
IN THOSE DAYS, ANTIBIOITCS WERE BEING TESTED TO COMBAT DEADLY BACTERIAL INFECTIONS. AS A RESULT OF THE WORK OF ALEXANDER FLEMING AND OTHERS, PENICILLIN BEGAN TO BE USED GINGERLY DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR, AGAINST SUCH LIFE-THREATENING ILLNESSES AS SEPTICAEMIA, MENINGITIS OR PNEUMONIA. THERE IS PERHAPS NO OTHER FAMILY OF DRUGS THAT HAS SO REVOLUTIONALISED - INDEED DEFINED - MODERN MEDICINE.
 
NEVERTHELESS, 50 YEARS ON THIS CENTURY'S WONDER DRUG HAS BECOME ONE OF THE MOST ABUSED SUBSTANCES IN MODERN MEDICINE. WHAT WAS ONCE RESERVED FOR LIFE-THREATENING ILLNESSES SUCH AS LOBAR PNEUMONIA IS NOW ROUTINELY HANDED OUT AT THE SURGERY FOR ATHLETE'S FOOT AND COLDS - ANYTIME A BENIGN INFECTION IS SUSPECTED, OR EVEN SUSPECTED OF DEVELOPING ONE DAY.
 
UP UNTIL NOW, AN UNNECESSARY ANTI-BIOITIC WAS ONLY THOUGHT TO CAUSE A TUMMY UPSET OR A REACTION IN THE APPROXIMATELY 5 PER CENT OF THOSE TRULY ALLERGIC TO THEM. BUT A GROWING BODY OF OPINION BELIEVES THAT REPEATED COURSES OF ANTIBIOTICS CAN SO DISTURB A PERSON'S INTERNAL ECOLOGY THAT IT BEGINS A PROCESS OF DISEASE THAT COULD END M.E, DIABETES OR EVEN CANCER.
 
WITH THE NOTABLE EXCEPTION OF ANTIBIOTICS (SO LONG AS THEY ARE USED VERY JUDICIOUSLY), THE FACT IS THAT DRUGS DO NOT MAKE YOU BETTER. AT YOUR NEXT DINNER PARTY, TRY PLAYING THE FOLLOWING GAME. CHALLENGE EVERYONE AROUND THE TABLE TO PRODUCE A SINGLE DRUG THAT CAN CURE PEOPLE OF AN ILLNESS, OTHER THAN ANTIBIOITCS. IF YOU COME UP WITH ANYTHING, STOP WHATEVER YOU'RE DOING AND CALL ME.
 
AFTER MANY YEARS OF WRACKING MY BRAIN, TRAWLING THROUGH THE INFORMATION ON THOUSANDS OF DRUGS ON THE MARKET, I CANNOT THINK OF A SINGLE CATEGORY OF DRUG COMPANIES CALL 'MAINTENANCE' - THAT IS, MAKING THE PATIENT MORE COMFORTABLE WITH HIS ILLNESS, OR TRYING TO PREVENT THE DISEASE FROM GETTING WORSE, OFTEN AT THE RISK OF DEVELOPING A NUMBER OF OTHER CONDITIONS POTENTIALLY FAR WORSE THAN THE ONE BEING TREATED."

STAY POSTED FOR MORE UP DATES ON THESE VERY INTERESTING TOPICS..AGAIN ALL THANKS TO MR GREEN FOR GIVING ME THIS BOOK THAT WAS WRITTEN BY LYN MCTAGGART.

GIVE THANKS FOR MANY BLESSINGS
 
 
 

MYTH NO.1: POLIO

Posted on 6 December, 2014 at 11:07 Comments comments (43)
PLEASE READ THIS ARTICLE FROM LYN MCTAGGART'S BOOK: WHAT DOCTORS DON'T TELL..AND ENJOY THE READ..
 
'POLIO..
MORE THAN ANY OTHER, THE POLIO VACCINE IS POINTED TO WITH PRIDE BY EVERY GOVERNMENT AS DEFINITIVE PROOF THAT MASS VACCINATION PROGRAMMES WORK.
 
THE US GOVERNMENT IS QUICK TO NOTE THAT DURING THE PLAGUE YEARS OF POLIO, 20,000-30,000 CASES PER YEAR OCCURED IN AMERICA, COMPARED TO 20-30 CASES A YEAR TODAY.
 
NEVERTHELESS, DR BERNARD GREENBURG, HEAD OF DEPARTMENT OF BIOSTATISTICS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH OF CAROLINA SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH, HAS GONE ON  RECORD TO SAY THAT CASES OF POLIO INCREASED BY 50 PER CENT BETWEEN 1957 AND 1958, AND BY 80 PER CENT FROM 1958 TO 1959, AFTER THE INTRODUCTION OF MASS IMMUNIZATION.
 
 
IN FIVE NEW ENGLAND STATES - MASSACHUSETTS, CONNETICUT, NEW HAMPSHIRE, RHODE ISLAND, AND VERMONT - CASES OF POLIO ROUGHLY DOUBLED IN 1954-1955, AFTER THE POLIO VACCINE WAS INTRODUCED. NEVERTHELESS, IN THE MIDST OF THE POLIO PANIC OF THE 1950'S, WITH THE PRESSURE ON TO FIND A MAGIC BULLET, STATISTICS WERE MANIPULATED BY HEALTH AUTHORITIES TO GIVE THE OPPOSITE IMPRESSION.
 
ONE SUCH WAY WAS TO GIVE THE OLD DISEASE A NEW NAME- 'VIRAL OR ASEPTIC MENINGITIS' OR 'COCKSACKIE VIRUS'. ACCORDING TO THE STATISTICS FROM THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY HEALTH INDEX, FOR INSTANCE, IN JULY 1955 THERE WERE 273 REPORTED CASES OF POLIO AND 50 CASES OF ASEPTIC MENINGITIS, COMPARED WITH FIVE CASES OF POLIO AND 256 CASES OF ASEPTIC MENINGITIS A DECADE LATER.
 
IN THE EARLY PART OF THIS CENTURY, OVER 3,000 DEATHS WERE ATTRIBUTED TO 'CHICKENPOX', AND ONLY SOME 500 TO SMALLPOX, EVEN THOUGH AUTHORITIES AGREE THAT CHICKENPOX IS ONLY VERY RARELY A FATAL DISEASE.
 
MARTHA, FROM SHEFFIELD, RECENTLY EXPERIENCED THIS SORT OF FAST SHUFFLE NAME-CHANGE WITH WHOOPING COUGH:
 
NOT LONG AGO, AFTER TWO YEAR OLD DEVELOPED FULL-BLOWN WHOOPING COUGH, I TOOK HER TO OUR GP, PREPARED TO FACE A REPRIMAND FOR NEGLECTING TO HAVE HER VACCINATED. HOWEVER, THE DOCTOR DIAGNOSED ASTHMA AND PRESCRIBED VENTOLIN. I WAS SO UNCONVINCED BY THIS DIAGNOSIS THAT I CONSULTED ANOTHER GP WITHIN THE PRACTICE. TO MY AMAZEMENT HE INSISTED THAT WHOOPING COUGH NO LONGER EXISTS (DUE TO MASS VACCINATION) AND CONFIRMED THE DIAGNOSIS OF ASTHMA. I THEN PRESSED FOR A SPUTUM TEST TO PROVE OR DISPROVE THE EXISTENCE OF WHOOPING COUGH.'
 
I LATER RECEIVED A PATRONIZING PHONE CALL, FOLLOWING MY DOCTOR'S DISCUSSION WITH OUR LOCAL CONSULTANT MICOROBIOLOGIST. 'THEY DO NOT TEST FOR WHOOPING COUGH BECAUSE IT DOES NOT EXIST.' I WAS TOLD. I THEN ASKED, SHOULD THIS CONDITION CLEAR UP IN A FEW WEEKS, PRESUMABLY ASTHMA WOULD HAVE BEEN AN UNLIKELY DIAGNOSIS? TO WHICH HE REPLIED: 'WE NOW HAVE A NEW CONDITION CALLED VIRAL ASTHMA WHICH IS SIMILAR TO WHOOPING COUGH'. HE SAID THEY SEE MANY CHILDREN WITH THIS CONDITION. HE ADDED, 'SINCE THEY STOPPED TESTING FOR WHOOPING COUGH THERE HAVE BEEN NO RECORDED CASES IN OUR AREA.'
 
DISEASES SUCH AS POLIO OPERATE CYCLICALLY. THE GREAT POLIO EPIDEMICS OCCURRED IN THE 1910'S, THE 1930'S AND THE 1950'S: THEN CASES SHARPLY DROPPED OFF DOWN TO NEARLY ZERO. BUT AT THE HEIGHT OF THE FIFTIES EPIDEMICS, AFTER THE VACCINE WAS INTRODUCED, AS AUTHOR WELENE JAMES SAYS, QUOTING ANOTHER WRITER, 'THE VACCINE TOOK CREDIT INSTEAD OF NATURE.'
 
AMERICAN MEDICAL CRITIC DR ROBERT MENDELSOHN ONCE NOTED: ' DISEASES ARE LIKE FASHION, THEY COME AND GO.' MANY VACCINE PROGRAMMES CLAIM THE CREDIT FOR WHAT IS SIMPLY THE TENDENCY OF ILLNESSES TO WAX AND WANE. FAR FROM SCIENCE HAVING ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT FINALLY STAMPING OUT POLIO OR TUBERCULOSIS, BOTH DISEASES DECIDED, A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO, TO TAKE A BREATHER AND ARE NOW MAKING A COMEBACK - TUBERCULOSIS IN MANY WESTERN  COUNTRIES, POLIO IN MANY PARTS OF CANADA, AND DIPTHERIA IN RUSSIA AND IN THE EAST.'
 
I SHALL POST MORE FROM LYN'S BOOK VERY,VERY SOON..SAY POSTED!
 
STAY BLESSED.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

MYTH NO.1: DISEASE HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED PURELY AS A RESULT OF VACCINES

Posted on 6 December, 2014 at 9:32 Comments comments (34)
 
HERE WE SHOW YET ANOTHER SET OF INTERESTING FACTS, TAKEN FROM LYN MCTAGGART'S BRILLIANT BOOK: 'WHAT DOCTORS DON'T TELL YOU' THE TRUTH ABOUT THE DANGERS OF MODERN MEDICINE...
 
 
THE SUCCESS OF VACCINATION IS BASED ENTIRELY ON ASSUMPTION. BECAUSE THE INCIDENCE AND DEATH RATE OF MANY INFECTIOUS DISEASES HAVE RADICALLY DECLINED,
 
WITHIMPROVED SANITATION AND HYGIENE, HOUSING, BETTER NUTRITION AND ISOLATION PROCEDURES, AT COINCIDENTALLY THE SAME TIME THAT VACCINES HAVE BEEN INTRODUCED, MEDICINE HAS ASSUMED THAT VACCINATION IS ENTIRELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ERADICATION OF DISEASES.
 
MANY MEDICAL TEXTBOOKS LEAD OFF WITH THE BOAST THAT ONE OF MEDICINE'S GREAT ACHIEVEMENTS IS THE ERADICATION OF SMALLPOX THROUGH VACCINATION.
 
 
HOWEVER, IF YOU ACTUALLY EXAMINE THE EPIDEMIOLOGICAL STATISTICS, YOU DISCOVER THAT BETWEEN 1870 AND 1872, 18 YEARS AFTER COMPULSORY VACCINATION WAS INTRODUCED, FOUR YEARS AFTER A COERCIVE FOUR -YEAR EFFORT TO VACCINATE ALL MEMBERS OF THE POPULATION WAS IN PLACE (WITH STIFF PENALTIES FOR OFFENDERS), AND AT THE POINT WHERE
97.5PER CENT OF THE POPULATION HAD BEEN VACCINATED, ENGLAND EXPERIENCED  WORST SMALLPOX EPIDEMIC OF THE CENTURY, WHICH CLAIMED MORE THAN 44,000 LIVES.
 
IN FACT, THREE TIMES AS MANY PEOPLE DIED OF SMALLPOX AT THAT TIME AS HAD IN AN EARLIER EPIDEMIC, WHEN FEWER PEOPLE WERE VACCINATED.
 
AFTER 1871, THE TOWN OF LEICESTER REFUSED TO VACCINATION, LARGELY BECAUSE THE HIGH INCIDENCE OF SMALLPOX AND DEATH RATES DURING THE 1870 EPIDEMIC CONVINCED THE POPULATION IT DIDN'T WORK.
 
IN THE NEXT EPIDEMIC OF 1892, LEICESTER RELIED SOLELY ON IMPROVED SANITATION AND QUARANTINES. THE TOWN ONLY SUFFERED 19 CASES AND 1 DEATH PER 100,000 POPULATION, COMPARED WITH THE TOWN OF WARRINGTON, WHICH HAD SIX TIMES THE NUMBER OF CASES AND 11 TIMES THE DEATH RATE OF LEICESTER, EVEN THOUGH INCIDENT OF IT'S POPULATION WHO HAD BEEN VACCINATED.
 
THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION WAS POINTED OUT THAT THE KEY TO ERADICATION OF THE DISEASE IN MANY PARTS OF WEST AND CENTRAL AFRICA WAS SWITCHING FROM MASS IMMUNIZATION, WHICH WAS NOT WORKING VERY WELL, TO A CAMPAIGN OF SURVEILLENCE, CONTAINING THE DISEASE THROUGH ISOLATION PROCEDURES.
 
SIERRA LEONE'S EXPERIENCE ALSO DEMONSTRATES THAT VACCINNATION WASN'T RESPONISBLE FOR THE END OF SMALLPOX. IN THE LATE SIXTIES, SIERRA LEONE HAD THE HIGHEST RATE OF SMALLPOX IN THE WORLD. IN JANUARY 1968 THE COUNTRY BEGAN IT'S ERADICATION CAMPAIGN, AND THREE OF THE FOUR LARGEST OUTBREAKS WERE CONTROLLED BY IDENTIFYING AND ISOLATING CASES ALONE, WITHOUT IMMUNIZATION. FIFTEEN MONTHS LATER, THE AREA RECORDED IT'S LAST CASE OF SMALLPOX.
 
THIS ISN'T SOMETHING YOUR DOCTOR EVER TOLD YOU, IS IT? MAKES YOU WONDER, WHAT ELSE YOUR DOCTOR DIDN'T EVER TELL, DOESN'T IT?
 
PLEASE CONTINUE TO READ OUR UPDATED BLOGS, COMING VERY SOON.
 
THANK YOU

'WHAT DOCTORS DON'T TELL YOU' THE TRUTH ABOUT THE HAZARDS OF MODERN MEDICINE

Posted on 8 November, 2014 at 10:55 Comments comments (90)
VACCINATION IS A BLUNT AND HIGHLY IMPERFECT INSTRUMENT. THE MAIN PROBLEM ISN'T SO MUCH THAT VACCINES DON'T WORK, BUT THAT THEY WORK HAPHAZARDLY.
 
THE PREMISE OF VACCINATION RESTS ON THE ASSUMPTION THAT INJECTING AN INDIVIDUAL WITH WEAKENED LIVE OR KILLED VIRUS WILL 'TRICK' HIS BODY INTO DEVELOPING ANTIBODIES TO THE DISEASE, AS IT DOES WHEN IT CONTRACTS AN ILLNESS NATURALLY.
 
BUT MEDICINE DOESN'T REALLY KNOW WHETHER VACCINES WORK FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME. ALL THAT THE USUAL SCIENTIFIC STUDIES CAN DEMONSTRATE (AS THEY ARE ONLY CONDUCTED OVER THE SHORT TERM) IS THAT VACCINES MAY CREATE ANTIBODIES IN THE BLOOD.
 
WHAT MAY HAPPEN IS THAT A NUMBER OF VACCINES ARE CAPABLE OF MEASURABLY RAISING
ANTIBODIES TO A PARTICULAR INFECTIOUS ILLNESS, BUT ONLY FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.
 
OR EVEN IF THEY DO RAISE ANTIBODIES INDEFINATELY, THIS MAY HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH PROTECTING AN INDIVIDUAL FROM CONTRACTING THE DISEASE OVER THE LONG (OR EVEN SHORT TERM). IN FACT, HAVING ANTIBODIES IN THE BLOOD MAY NOT BE THE ONLY WAY THE BODY RECOGNISES AND DEFENDS ITSELF FROM DISEASE.
 
FOR INSTANCE, LARGE NUMBERS OF PEOPLE WHO HAD ILLNESSES SUCH AS DIPHTHERIA NEVER PRODUCE ANTIBODIES TO THE DISEASE.
 
IN ONE REPORT, FOR INSTANCE, MEASLES ANTIBODIES WERE FOUND IN THE BLOOD OF ONLY ONE OF SEVEN VACCINATED CHILDREN WHO'D GONE ON TO DEVELOP MEASLES - THEY HADN'T DEVELOPED ANTIBODIES FROM EITHER THE SHOT OR THE DISEASE ITSELF.
 
AND LATELY, THE PUBLIC HEALTH LABORATORY IN LONDON HAS DISCOVERED THAT  A QUARTER OF BLOOD DONORS BETWEEN 20 AND 29 HAD INSUFFICIENT IMMUNITY TO DIPTHERIA, EVEN THOUGH MOST WOULD HAVE BEEN VACCINATED AS BABIES. THIS PERCENTAGE DOUBLED AMOUNG THE 50-59 AGE GROUP.

VACCINATIONS: KNEE-JERK JABS

Posted on 3 November, 2014 at 14:03 Comments comments (47)
VACCINATIONS: KNEE-JERK JABS
 
JOSIE MCNALLY THOUGHT SHE WAS DOING RIGHT BY HER BABY SON, WILLIAM. HE WAS A HEALTHY, NORMAL, HAPPY ONE YEAR OLD AND SHE WANTED TO MAKE SURE TO KEEP HIM THAT WAY.
 
ON DECEMBER 1992, HER DOCTOR RECOMMENDED THAT HE COME IN FOR HIS ROUTINE MEASLES/MUMPS/RUBELLA (MMR) JAB TO PROTECT AGAINST THESE DANGEROUS DISEASES. JOSIE THOUGHT NOTHING OF IT: WILLIAM SAILED THROUGH HIS INFANT JABS AND BESIDES, THE DOCTOR KNEW BEST.
 
 
TEN DAYS AFTER WILLIAM'S SHOT, SOMETHING TURNED TERRIBLY WRONG. WILLIAM BEGAN CONVULSING AND JOSIE AND HER HUSBAND HAD TO RUSH HIM IN AN AMBULANCE TO HOSPITAL.
 
WHEN JOSIE SUGGESTED HER SON MIGHT BE REACTING TO THE VACCINATION, THE DOCTOR SHOOK HIS HEAD.
 
THE FIT COMING AFTER THE SHOT COULD BE NOTHING MORE THAN COINCIDENCE: IT PROBABLY WOULDN'T RECUR.
 
THE HOSPITAL CONSULTANT AGREED: THE SHOT APPEARED TO HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH IT.
 
BUT THE FITS DIDN'T STOP, AND BEFORE LONG WILLIAM BECAME GRIPPED BY SEIZURES, SOMETIMES 40 A DAY. HE ALSO DEVELOPED A RARE IMMUNE-SYSTEM REACTION.
 
NOW THREE YEARS OLD, HE'S DIAGNOSED AS EPILEPTIC, CONTINUES TO HAVE CONVULSIONS UNCONTROLLABLE BY MEDICATION, AND HAS THE DEVELOPMENTAL AGE OF AN 18 MONTH OLD.
 
IN HER TRIPS IN AND OUT OF HOSPITAL, JOSIE BEGAN MEETING OTHER MOTHERS WHOSE CHILDREN ALSO HAD SIMILIAR PROBLEMS, WHICH STARTED RIGHT AFTER THEIR MMR SHOT. AND NOT LONG AFTER HE WAS GIVEN IT, THE VACCINE WILLIAM HAD WAS WITHDRAWN.
 
NEVERTHELESS, TO THIS DAY NO ONE IN THE MEDICAL PROFESSION WILL OFFICIALLY ACKNOWLEDGE THE VACCINE HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT. THE MCNALLY FAMILY HAS BEEN GIVEN NO FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE BY ANY GOVERNMENT BODY FOR THE CONSIDERABLE MEDICAL BILLS THEY WILL FACE DURING WILLIAM'S LIFETIME.
 
 
MOST DOCTORS FERVENTLY BELIEVE THAT VACCINES ARE ONE OF MEDICAL SCIENCE'S GREATEST SUCCESS STORIES, RESPONSIBLE FOR WIPING OUT MANY DEADLY INFECTIOUS DISEASES. IN FACT, LURKING INSIDE MOST DOCTORS IS AN ALTRUIST WHO LIKES TO THINK THAT THE ERADICATION OF DISEASE IS NOT ONLY POSSIBLE BUT JUST AROUND THE CORNER.
 
EVERY SO OFTEN, THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION WILL ANNOUNCE AN ACTUAL DATE  WHEN IT FULLY EXPECTS THAT DISEASES SUCH AS POLIO, MEASLES OR DIPHTHERIA WILL BE WIPED OFF THE PLANET FOR EVER.
 
 
THE ARDENCY OF THIS FAITH HAS EMBOLDENED THE PROFESSION TO PRODUCE EVER MORE SHOTS TO COMBAT NOT ONLY MAJOR KILLERS SUCH AS POLIO BUT ALSO A NUMBER OF THE MOSTLY BENIGN CO-PASSENGERS OF CHILDHOOD, SUCH AS MEASLES, MUMPS AND CHICKENPOX.
 
COUNTING ALL MULTIPLE BOOSTERS IN THE ENTIRE SUGGESTED SCHEDULE, AMERICAN CHILDREN CAN RECEIVE SOME 30 VACCINATIONS BY THE TIME THEY GO TO SCHOOL, MOST IN THE FIRST FEW MONTHS OF LIFE, BRITAIN, WITH IT'S TUBERCULOSIS VACCINE OFFERED AT BIRTH BUT NO HEPITITAS B OR CHICKENPOX VACCINE, ENDS UP WITH SLIGHTLY MORE MODEST 25.
 
THE US GOVERNMENT AND THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION HAVE EVEN SPONSORED THE DEVELOPMENT OF WHAT THEY IMAGINE WILL TURN OUT TO BE A  GENETICALLY-ENGINEERED, TIME-RELEASED 'HOLY GRAIL,' A SUPERVACCINE CONTAINING THE RAW DNA OF UP TO 40 DIFFERENT DISEASES AT ONE GO, WHICH WILL BE SQUIRTED INTO A NEWBORN'S MOUTH AT BIRTH AND SEND OUT BOOSTER DOSES AT TIMED INTERVALS THROUGHOUT AN INDIVIDUAL'S LIFE.
 
LATELY, THERE ARE EVEN VACCINES BEING WORKED ON FOR ASTHMA, EARACHES AND RESPIRATORY DISEASES, AIDS, CANCER, AND EVEN TO PREVENT PREGNANCY.
 
IT IS WITH VACCINES THAT THE BRAVE-NEW-WORLD TECHNOCRATS OF MEDICINE HAVE LOST ALL REASON ABOUT DISEASE AND ITS PREVENTION. SO STEADFAST IS THIS FAITH IN THE RIGHTNESS OF THEIR CAUSE THAT IT PREVENTS DOCTORS FROM ACKNOWLEDGING CLEAR FACTUAL EVIDENCE DEMONSTRATING THE DANGERS AND INEFFECTIVENESS OF CERTAIN VACCINES, OR EVEN CASES OF A DISEASE IN CHILDREN WHO HAVE BEEN VACCINATED AGAINST IT.
 
IT ALSO TURNS OTHERWISE REASONABLE DOCTORS OR SCIENTISTS INTO BULLIES AND HYSTERICS, SHOUTING DOWN DISSENTERS, USING EMOTIONAL BLACKMAIL TO BULLY PARENTS INTO SUBMISSION AND RESORTING TO EMOTIVE APPEALS, RATHER THAN COMMON SENSE OR FACT: TO ARGUE THEIR POINT OF VIEW.
 
TO LAUNCH ITS COUNTRYWIDE CAMPAIGN TO VACCINATE SCHOOL-AGE CHILDREN AGAINST MEASLES, MUMPS AND RUBELLA, THAT BRITISH GOVERNMENT RAN STARK, EMOTIVE BLACK-AND-WHITE TELEVISION ADVERTS SUGGESTING THAT MEASLES STRIKES FATALLY AND AT RANDOM.
 
IN THE US PARENTS ARE THREATENED WITH THE WITHHOLDING OF WELFARE PAYMENTS IF THEY FAIL TO GIVE THEIR KIDS THE LIVE TRIPLE MEASLES/MUMPS/RUBELLA VACCINE.
 
CHICAGO HEALTH AUTHORITIES HAVE TRIED TO GIVE VACCINATION A BIT OF STREET CRED BY EMPLOYING LOUDSPEAKER SALES PITCHES MIXED IN WITH SALSA MUSIC TO ENCOURAGE MOTHERS IN HISPANIC NEIGHBOURHOODS TO BRING THEIR CHILDREN IN TO GET THEIR SHOTS.
 
IN THE RECENT UK CAMPAIGN TO INOCULATE ALL BRITISH CHILDREN FROM 5 TO 16 WITH THE MEASLES/MUMPS/RUBELLA JAB, PARENTS WERE GIVEN FLIMSY PAMPHLETS WITH VIRTUALLY NO MENTION OF THE SIDE-EFFECTS LONG ACCEPTED BY INTERNATIONAL GOVERNMENTAL BODIES.
 
DOCTORS AND HEALTH AUTHORITIES BADGERED PARENTS WHO'D DECIDED AGAINST THE JAB WITH LETTERS AND PHONE CALLS TO TRY AND CHANGE THEIR MIND. AND ALL SORTS OF MEDICAL EXPERTS WERE CONFIDENTLY ANNOUNCING PUBLICLY THAT THIS CAMPAIGN WOULD UNDOUBTEDLY ERADICATE MEASLES FROM THESE SHORES FOR ALL TIME.

NATIVE NUTRITION

Posted on 25 October, 2014 at 2:44 Comments comments (56)
ANOTHER EXCELLENT ARTICLE TAKEN FROM LYN MCTAGGART'S AMAZING BOOK: 'WHAT DOCTOR'S DON'T TELL YOU.'

"BECAUSE MOST DIETARY RECOMMENDATIONS ARE FADDISH, YOUR SAFEST BET IS TO FOLLOW SOME OF THE BASIC DIETARY PRINCIPLES SHARED BY MANY HEALTHY NATIVE POPULATIONS. 

IN HIS BOOK: 'NATIVE NUTRITION ; EATING ACCORDING TO ANCESTRAL WISDOM' (HEALING ARTS PRESS), NATUROPATH RONALD F. SCHMID, EXAMINES STUDIES NATIVE POPULATIONS BY WESTON PRICE AND DR FRANCIS M. POTTENGER: ESKIMOS OF ALASKA, THE SWISS OF THE LOETSCHENTAL VALLEY, NATIVE AMERICANS, AFRICANS, AND SOUTH SEA ISLANDERS. 

ALL THESE POPULATIONS, WHICH LIVED ON FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, GRAINS, WILD GAME AND FISH OR HEALTHY, FREE-ROAMING ANIMALS AND, IN SOME CASES, FRESH, UNPROCESSED DAIRY PRODUCTS, WERE OR ARE IMPRESSIVE FOR THEIR STRONG, HEALTHY BODIES, STRAIGHT PERFECT TEETH AND FREEDOM FROM DEGENERATIVE DISEASES PLAGUING US NOWADAYS IN THE WEST.

ALTHOUGH, THEIR DIETS VARIED ENORMOUSLY (THE AFRICAN MAASAI MAINLY EAT MEAT, MILK AND BLOOD, WHILE TRADITIONAL MAORI OF NEW ZEALAND EAT FISH, KELP AND ROOTS), THEY SHARE SIMILARITIES. ACCORDING TO AMERICAN DIETARY EXPERT ANNEMARIE COLBIN IN HER EXCELLENT BOOK 'FOOD AND HEALING' (BALLANTINE), ALL THESE NATIVE DIETS HAVE IN COMMON FOOD THAT IS FRESH (OR PRESERVED NATURALLY, WHETHER SMOKED, DRIED OR PICKLED): IT IS GROWN LOCALLY AND ORGANICALLY, IN SEASON: AND IT IS COOKED BY TRADITIONAL METHODS.

WHENEVER POSSIBLE, EAT FRESH WHOLE FOODS AND ESCHEW PACKAGED AND PROCESSED FOODS, ANYTHING THAT HAS BEEN ADDED TO, REFINED, ENRICHED OR IN SOME WAY INTERFERED WITH. THIS WOULD INCLUDE MOST PROCESSED BAKED GOODS, CANNED SAUCES, COMMERCIAL PEANUT BUTTER, SWEETS, 'CHEESE' FOODS, CRISPS AND CORN CHIPS.

ESPECIALLY STEER CLEAR OF ANYTHING SUCH AS MARGARINES WHOSE LABELS LIST NON-FOODS SUCH AS PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OILS. THERE IS NO HEALTH REASONS TO CUT OUT OR LIMIT EGGS (SO LONG AS THEY ARE FREE-RANGE), WHICH ARE AN EXCELLENT SOURCE OF PROTEIN.

OTHERWISE, EAT A WIDE VARIETY OF FOODS, SORT OUT YOUR FOOD ALLERGIES BEFOREHAND, AND CUT DOWN ON ANIMAL FATS AS THE CENTREPIECE OF YOUR MEALS. IN GENERAL, MOST EUROPEAN OILS ARE LESS REFINED THAN THOSE PRODUCED IN THE US. IN FACT, THE SAFEST COURSE IS TO COOK WITH EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL THAT IS STILL MADE BY TRADITIONAL METHODS."

STAY TUNED IN FOR MORE GREAT EXERTS FROM LYN'S BOOK, COMING VERY SOON...

MAMMOGRAMS

Posted on 22 August, 2014 at 16:58 Comments comments (33)
MAMMOGRAMS -  AN X-RAY OF THE BREAST DESIGNED TO PICK UP EARLY MALIGNANCES - IS THE OTHER SCREENING TEST BEING STEPPED UP SHARPLY.
 
AS THE COMMONEST FEMALE CANCER AND THE MAIN CAUSE OF DEATH IN WOMEN UNDER 55, BREAST CANCER HAS BECOME A POLITICAL FOOTBALL, WITH BREAST CANCER ACTIVISTS ON BOTH SIDES OF ATLANTIC DEMANDING GOVERNMENT ACTION.
 
IN THE US, CONGRESS RESPONDED TO PRESSURE FROM BREAST CANCER ACTIVISTS BY ORDERING THAT NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF HEALTH INCREASE SPENDING ON BREAST CANCER RESEARCH AND TREATMENT BY NEARLY 50 PER CENT - TO SOME $132.7 MILLION.
 
IN THE UK, THE GOVERNMENT LAUNCHED IT'S NATIONAL BREAST SCREENING PROGRAMME IN 1990, OFFERING MAMMOGRAPHY TO WOMEN AGGED 50-64, AND IN IT'S FIRST YEAR EXCEEDED ITS TARGET OF SCREENING 70 PER CENT OF THE MILLION WOMEN INVITED TO PARTICIPATE EVERY THREE YEARS.
 
NEVERTHELESS, IN SOME QUARTERS THIS ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH. ALL THIS ACTIVITY MAY COMFORT THOSE WHO WISH TO SEE MEDICINE DOING SOMETHING ABOUT BREAST CANCER.
 
HOWEVER, NOBODY CAN AGREE ON WHOM SHOULD BE SCREENED AND HOW OFTEN. WIDE VARIATIONS EXIST BETWEEN COUNTRIES (AND EVEN BETWEEN DIFFERENT GOVERNMENTAL BODIES) AS TO WHICH GROUPS OF WOMEN WOULD BENEFIT THE MOST.
 
AND THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT THE LEVEL OF BREAST CANCER MORTALITY REMAINS CONSTANT, DESPITE HUGE EFFORTS TO IMPROVE EARLY DETECTION AND LOCAL TREATMENT.
 
FURTHERMORE, THE FALL IN MORTALITY BEGAN IN 1985, BUT THE FIRST NHS SCREENING UNITS WERE NOT WORKING UNTIL THREE YEARS LATER, AND GREAT BRITAIN AS A WHOLE WASN'T SUFFICIENTLY COVERED UNTIL 1990.
 
AS ROYAL MARSDEN HOSPITAL BREAST CANCER SPECIALIST MICHAEL BAUM WRITES, CLAIMING THAT ANY PART OF THE DROP IN MORTALITY IS DUE TO THE SCREENING PROGRAMME IS 'INTELLECTUALLY DISHONEST.'
 
 
BAUM ESTIMATED THAT, BASED ON CURRENT STATISTICS, THE HEALTH SERVICES WOULD HAVE TO SPEND £2 MILLION ON UNIVERSAL MAMMOGRAM SCREENING TO BENEFIT ONE WOMAN OUT OF 10,000 AMOUNG THE UNDER FIFTIES.
 
 
MICHAEL BAUM AND ISMAIL JATOI, ANOTHER TOP BREAST CANCER SPECIALIST, WROTE A SPECIAL FEATURE LABELLING AMERICAN DOCTORS 'NEGLIGENT' FOR GIVING MAMMOGRAMS TO WOMEN UNDER 50, BECAUSE IT CAN OFTEN DO MORE TO THE CONTRARY, THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY AND THE AMERICAN COLLEGE OF RADIOLOGY HAVE CARRIED ON URGING ALL WOMEN OVER 40 - WHICH OF COURSE INCLUDES THIS LIMBO GROUP BETWEEN THE AGES OF 40 AND 49 - TO HAVE ANNUAL MAMMOGRAMS.
 
THIS '30 PER CENT RISK REDUCTION' HAS BEEN ADOPTED AS A MANTRA BY THE MEDICAL PROFESSION. IT HAS PROVIDED A JUSTIFICATION OF SORTS TO SCREEN MANY GROUPS, SUCH AS WOMEN UNDER 50, WHERE BENEFITS OF SCREENING HAVE NEVER BEEN SHOWN.
 
DESPITE THE NEW RECOMMENDATIONS FROM US NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE, A RESEARCHER FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA DISCOVERED THAT 89 PER CENT OF DOCTORS IN HER REGION WERE STILL SCREENING EVEN MORE THOUGH THEY WERE AWARE OF THE CHANGE IN RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE.
 
AS A PEFECT EXAMPLE OF JUST HOW INGRAINED ROUTINE SCREENING IS, MINERVA, THE PEN NAME OF COLUMIST IN THE BRITISH MEDICAL JOURNAL, CHEERILY ADMITTED THAT THERE IS 'LITTLE HARD EVIDENCE' BUT 'PLENTY OF SOUND REASONS' FOR BELIEVING THAT SCREENING FOR THOSE OVER 65 IS JUST AS IMPORTANT RISK FACTOR FOR THE DISEASE, AND 65 YEAR OLDS MAY GO ON TO LIVE ANOTHER 12 YEARS, SHE ADDED, 'IT'S GOT TO BE GOOD FOR THEM.'
 
BUT EVEN AMONG THE OVER FIFTIES, THERE IS NO CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE THAT MAMMOGRAPHIC SCREENING IS DOING ANY GOOD. IN THE MUCH QUOTED SWEDISH STUDY, THE RESEARCHERS CAME UP WITH THEIR FIGURE BY POOLING ALL RESULTS OF THREE BANDS OF AGE GROUPS - THE 40-49 YEAR OLDS, 50-69 YEAR OLDS AND 70-74 YEAR OLDS - INTO AN OVERVIEW.
 
 
THE STUDY SHOWED A POSITIVE BENEFIT (29 PER CENT REDUCTION IN MORTALITY) AMONG THE WOMEN IN THEIR FIFTIES, BUT NONE AMONG THE WOMEN IN THEIR FORTIES OR THOSE IN THEIR SEVENTIES.
 
HOWEVER, WHEN YOU ACUTALLY EXAMINE THE SCIENCE BEHIND THESE STATISTICS, THIS IS THE ONLY STUDY TO SHOW CLEAR BENEFIT, EVEN AMONG THE 50 YEAR OLDS.
 
THE 30 PER CENT IMPROVED SURVIVAL FIGURE BEING BANDIED ABOUT DERIVES FROM SEVERAL ARTICLES WHICH EXAMINED ALL OF THE STUDIES OF SCREENING AND ATTEMPTED TO POOL THE RESULTS.
 
ALTHOUGH MOST STUDIES DIDN'T SHOW A CLEAR BENEFIT, THE ARTICLE CONCLUDED THAT THOSE THAT WERE MOST SCIENTIFIC, OR 'RANDOMISED' (THAT IS, WOMEN ASSIGNED RANDOMLY TO EITHER SCREENING  GROUPS OF CONTROLS) ALL PROVED TO BE OF BENEFIT.
 
IT'S ALSO WISE TO KEEP IN MIND WHAT THIS 30 PER CENT SUPPOSED REDUCTION IN MORTALITY ACTUALLY TRANSLATES INTO. AT BEST, IT MAY PREVENT OR POSTPONE ONE CANCER DEATH FOR BETWEEN 7,000 AND 63,000 WOMEN INVITED FOR SCREENING EVERY YEAR.
 
 
THERE HAS BEEN FAR LESS PUBLICITY, THE CANADIAN RESEARCHERS POINT OUT, ABOUT ALL THE STUDIES THAT BEEN DONE SINCE THOSE EARLY DAYS, SHOWING THAT MAMMOGRAPHY DOES NO GOOD FOR ANYONE IN ANY AGE GROUP, BUT DOES GREAT HARM THOUGH FALSE-POSITIVES AND GET-IN-THERE-EARLY INTERVENTION.
 
THE STUDY ATTACKED MAMMOGRAPHY AFTER DISCOVERING THAT ONLY ONE IN 14 WOMEN WITH A POSITIVE MAMMOGRAM RESULT INDICATING BREAST CANCER WILL ACTUALLY HAVE THE CONDITION.
 
'SINCE THE BENEFIT ACHIEVED IS MARGINAL, THE HARM CAUSED IS SUBSTANTIAL, AND THE COSTS INCURRED ARE ENORMOUS, WE SUGGEST THAT PUBLIC FUNDING FOR BREAST CANCER SCREENING IN ANY AGE GROUP IS NOT JUSTIFIABLE,' THESE EPIDEMIOLOGISTS CONCLUDED.
 
BREAST CANCER ISN'T A TIDY DISEASE THAT PROGRESSES IN THE SAME WAY FOR EVERY WOMAN, SOMETIMES IT SPREADS THROUGH OUT THE BODY, OTHER TIMES IT ADVANCES IN THE BREAST ALONE. MUCH OF OUR TREATMENT DOESN'T INFLUENCE THE OUTCOME IN ANY CASE.
 
ONE REASON MAY BE THAT MAMMOGRAMS ACTUALLY INCREASE THE MORTALITY RATES. AMONG THE UNDER-FIFTIES, MORE WOMEN DIE FROM BREAST CANCER AMONG SCREENED GROUPS THAN AMONG THOSE GIVEN MAMMOGRAMS.
 
THAT MORE YOUNGER SCREENED WOMEN DIE MAY REFLECT THE FACT THAT MAMMOGRAPHY IS INDISCRIMINANT, PICKING UP MANY CANCERS WHICH WOULD DO NO HARM IF LEFT ALONE. THE SCATTERGUN NATURE OF THE TECHNOLOGY HAS SEVERAL IMPLICATIONS.
 
THIS ABILITY TO PICK UP ANY SORT OF TUMOUR FALSELY INCREASES THE INCIDENCE OF BREAST CANCER BY A QUARTER TO A HALF. ADDING ALL THESE BENIGN TUMOURS WHICH OF COURSE DON'T LEAD TO DEATH, INTO THE CANCER DATA ALSO HAS THE EFFECT OF MAKING IT LOOK LIKE MORE PEOPLE IN THE SCREENED POPULATION SURVIVE BECAUSE OF EARLY DETECTION.
 
 
THE THIRD EFFECT OF REGULAR AMMOGRAMS IS THAT THEY LEAD TO MASSIVE, UNNECESSARY TREATMENT BECAUSE BENIGN TUMOURS ARE MISTAKEN FOR MALIGNANT ONES.
 
AND OF COURSE AN INAPPROPRIATELY STRONG MAMMOGRAPHY REPORT, WHICH MIGHT INCLUDE STATEMENTS SUCH AS 'MALIGNANCY CANNOT BE EXCLUDED', RAISES THE ANXIETY LEVEL OF THE PATIENT AND REFERRING PHYSICIAN AND OFTEN ENDS UP WITH THE WOMAN ON THE OPERATING TABLE.
 
UP UNTIL NOW, ONLY RELATIVELY HIGH DOSES OF RADiATION HAVE BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH INCREASED RISK OF BREAST CANCER. HOWEVER, NEW EVIDENCE DEMONSTRATES THAT EVEN MODERATE STRENGTHS OF STRONG X-RAYS RAISE THE RISK OF BREAST CANCER FIVE OR SIX TIMES IN WOMEN WHO CARRY A CERTAIN GENE, OCCURING IN ABOUT 1 PER CENT OF THE POPULATION - OR AT LEAST ONE MILLION AMERICAN WOMEN.
 
BESIDES A GENETIC SUSCEPTIBILTY, THE PHYSICAL TRAUMA CAUSED BY THE FORCE OF MAMMOGRAMS USE 200 NEWTONS OF COMPRESSION, THE EQUIVALENT OF 20 1-KG BAGS OF SUGAR PER BREAST.
