A disturbing new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine has brought mainstream attention to the fact that mammography screenings have caused millions of US women to suffer unnecessary surgeries and chemotherapy and radiation treatments over the past 30 years.
Flaxseed has remarkable therapeutic properties, with over 50 potential applications in the prevention and treatment of disease, as documented in the peer-reviewed biomedical literature itself* Flaxseed's role in breast cancer is one of the more compelling areas of research, considering this is the #1 form of cancer afflicting women today, and that most women still equate "prevention" with subjecting themselves to annual breast screenings involving highly carcinogenic 30 kVp...
The concept of a breast cancer that has no symptoms, which can not be diagnosed through manual palpation of the breast and does not become invasive in the vast majority of cases, might sound unbelievable to most women. However, there does exist a rather mysterious clinical anomaly known as Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS), which is, in fact, one of the most commonly diagnosed and unnecessarily treated forms of "breast cancer" today.
Millions of asymptomatic women undergo breast screening annually because their doctors tell them to do so. Not only are these women's presumably healthy breasts being exposed to highly carcinogenic x-rays, but thousands have received a diagnosis of 'breast cancer' for entirely benign lesions that when left untreated would have caused no harm to them whatsoever.
Despite what millions still believe, mammography does not "save lives." To the contrary, it increases total mortality.
A quarter century old practice: X-ray based breast screening, has now been confirmed (twice in 3 years) to cause more harm than good, and by what is perhaps the most respected research institution within "evidence-based medicine": The Cochrane Collaboration.
Frankincense oil may receive most of the fame and glory, but the humble boswellia tree from which it is derived, can also create another powerful natural medicine. Oil and extracts of boswellia have been used for thousands of years to treat numerous health conditions.
A growing body of research suggests that x-ray mammography is planting the seeds of radiation-induced cancer within the breasts of thousands of women who subject themselves to them, annually, without knowledge of their true health risks.
