In the United States, ultrasound is typically associated with expectant parents’ first beautiful image of their unborn child.  But did you know that ultrasound is actually a terrific alternative to mammography in the early detection of breast cancer?  And ultrasound, not mammography, is the standard of care in Europe.

Today, host KC Craichy presents the findings of an important new study that compared the efficacy of mammography versus ultrasound in breast cancer detection. The results of this study and other important information KC discusses may have you rethinking your bi-annual mammogram.  Consider forwarding this message to the women you love today.

CT Scan Radiation Linked To Cancers, Deaths

CT scans deliver far more radiation than has been believed and may contribute to 29,000 new cancers each year, along with 14,500 deaths, suggest two studies in the Archives of Internal Medicine. One study, led by the National Cancer Institute’s Amy Berrington de Gonzalez, used existing exposure data to estimate how many cancers might be caused by CT scans.

Another study in the journal suggests the problem may even be worse. In that study, researchers found that people may be exposed to up to four times as much radiation as estimated by earlier studies. While previous studies relied on dummies equipped with sensors, authors of the new paper studied 1,119 patients at four San Francisco-area hospitals, says author Rebecca-Smith Bindman of the University of California-San Francisco. Based on those higher measurements, a patient could get as much radiation from one CT scan as 74 mammograms or 442 chest X-rays, she says.

(NaturalNews) Any time you threaten to take away repeat customers from the businesses that make up the cancer industry, you’re in for a political fight. After the United States Preventive Services Task Force released new recommendations advising against mammograms for women under 50 (and recommending only bi-annual screenings after that), the cancer industry went berserk. Mammograms, you see, are the bread and butter of the for-profit cancer industry.

Most women don’t need a mammogram in their 40s and should get one every two years starting at 50, a government task force said Monday. It’s a major reversal that conflicts with the American Cancer Society’s long-standing position.
