Story at-a-glance -

  • There are a significant number of drawbacks to consistent mammograms and recent research demonstrates this test does not reduce your risk of death from the disease
  • Mammograms, used to detect breast cancer, employ ionizing radiation that carries a risk of developing cancer; new 3-D mammography, also called breast tomosynthesis, uses more radiation to achieve sharper images

  • You may be able to prevent 75 to 90 percent of breast cancers through lifestyle changes such as reducing exposure to hazardous toxins, seeking out organic products, severely reducing refined sugar and fructose and limiting protein
