It's Time to End Mammograms, Some Experts Say
My mammogram missed my breast cancer
Ben Johnson: I wrote a book for women, The Secret of Health Breast Wisdom because we, as a medical society, are giving women breast cancer with our demanding that they get mammograms. Mammograms cause breast cancer. So mammograms are not healthy for women. And yet today, if a woman went to her gynaecologist or family doc, she would have this shoved down her throat, extreme coercion to go get this mammogram that is causing breast cancer. That means 52 is pretty close to 50, right? Ben Johnson: So about half. That means that half the women that have breast cancer, it would not detect their cancer.
Young women are facing breast cancer diagnosis before mammograms are recommended
During a mammogram, you stand in front of an X-ray machine designed for mammography. A technician places your breast on a platform and positions the platform to match your height. The technician helps you position your head, arms and torso to allow an unobstructed view of your breast.
