This book is a must-read for all women over the age of 50 who are participating in mammograms. It is a book that will make you aware of all the dangers of conventional mammograms and how you can protect yourself against the dangers of radiation and other cancer causes.
According to Renee Pellerin, women are forced into breast screening through mammograms. Women should have a choice of whether or not to have a mammogram. But they are not. Neither are the risks disclosed of having a mammogram–and I have learned that there are many.
Women need to be given the incentive to take a more proactive approach to their healthy and overall well-being. Obviously, by having healthy eating habits and a healthy weight can help women be healthy and will reduce the risk of having breast cancer. However, so can reducing stress in their lives and living a more peaceful life.
Our world and culture makes this very hard. Being unconscious and simply following the health guidelines are very much the norm. However, when it comes to breast screening, this is hindering women more than helping them.
Pellerin suggested that perhaps we can have a kind of PAP test for breast health. This test wouldn’t be as invasive to women. Nor would the test be as dangerous to a woman’s health.
It’s hard to fathom that something that is supposed to help us prevent cancer, such as breast screening, can actually be unhealthy for women. But it is really true. Maybe we could hope for a Pap test equivalent for breast screening. This just may be our only hope along with being proactive for our own health to ensure that we are healthy overall.
