Mammograms and Breast Cancer

Do annual mammograms save lives? Recent studies have concluded that they do not and may actually harm more than they help, due to false positives, overtreatment, and radiation-induced cancers. Additionally, the mortality rate from breast cancer is virtually identical whether one receives an annual mammogram or annual physical breast exam.

In one study, researchers found “no evident correlation between the extent of screening and 10-year breast cancer mortality” and concluded that mammograms primarily find small, typically harmless, or non-lethal tumors. Moreover, higher screening rates were associated with higher incidence of breast cancer.

About Well Being Journal

This is our 25th anniversary year, and with our new January/February 2016 issue we present a seminal piece by Amy Berger, MS, NTP, that presents clear research showing how Alzheimer’s disease starts with consumption of too many sugars; this impairs glucose metabolism and leads to plaque in the brain. Next Katrina Blair extols the virtues of the edible “weed” purslane. Bruce Weinstein, PhD, in “Patience,” shows the remarkable benefits patience reaps. Mike Dow’s feature, “Digital Distraction & Mindfulness,” suggests that constant connection to digital devices has an overall deleterious impact, and he offers delicious mindfulness practices to help improve quality of life. Ann and Ross Rosen discuss the importance of moderate exercise in daily life, and Shannon McRae explains how energy medicine as nature’s assistant is much more powerful when the receiver’s intention is in alignment with that of the healer’s. Finally, Laura Coffey tells the story of a special nursing home companion, a loving golden retriever named Rocky, and his positive impact on the residents. We present all of this in our first issue of the year, and more than we can mention, including a plethora of scintillating research notes.
