Only one thing has reduced deaths from breast cancer — and it isn't mammography
Last week, we saw new guidelines come out for mammography. I discussed those guidelines in my last health alert. As I said in that alert, the new guidelines don't go far enough. In the upcoming December issue of Second Opinion, I show you strong evidence that mammograms can increase your risk of breast cancer by 57%. So I say any routine screening with mammography is wrong.
Amazingly, many claim the old screening guidelines reduced the death rate of breast cancer. But this is a farce. Yes, the death rate from breast cancer has declined sharply. In fact, its decline accounts for the 37% of the 650,000 reduction in the overall death rate in the U.S. between 1990 and 2005.
But there's only one thing that's reduced breast cancer death rates. It's not more screening. It's not better surgical methods. And it's not drugs. Well, actually, it has to do with drugs — but not in the way you might think. Let me explain.
Decades ago, and without any evidence, Big Pharma went on a blitz promoting hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Were a vitamin company to promote a true claim, but not to the FDA's despotic specifications, it would be closed up immediately.

The result of the huge media push from Big Pharma? Millions of women started using the drugs. And within just a few years, HRT was responsible for hundreds of thousands of needless breast cancer cases. The proof was incontrovertible — HRT caused breast cancer. And it killed women.
Once the news was out, women stopped taking the drugs. And the rate of death from breast cancer dropped rapidly.
So don't believe what you're hearing about mammography screening saving millions of lives. While it may have saved some, it's caused far more damage across the board. So don't believe what you're hearing. And don't submit to routine mammography screening.
Yours for better health and medical freedom,
