A renowned medical practitioner Dr. Ben Johnson has suggested that women told to go through a mammogram by their doctors is not sage and can actually be responsible for an increasing risk of cancer.
Cancer is on the rise worldwide due to several reasons, one of which is the conventional testing methods deployed. Mammograms is the usual recommended method for testing for breast cancer but this doctors says it’s flawed and should be avoided by all means.
Dr. Ben Johnson stated this in his book – “The Secret Of Health Breast Wisdom”. He said that women are unaware of the risks involved when they do a mammogram test and that they stand the chance of increasing their risk of cancer by as much as 4% each time they go through with the mammogram test.
Mammogram testing makes use of radiation in testing a woman to see if she has cancer or not, but this radiation can actually cause cancer.
Furthermore the mammograms are very ineffective as studies have shown that more than half of the women that make use of mammograms actually do not get their cancer detected.
Dr. Ben Johnson is an advocate for ultrasound or thermography testing rather than the use of mammograms as these methods are much safer than the latter.
These testing methods will detect cancerous cells in a woman’s breast better and safer than mammograms.
Mammograms on the other hand will stimulate cancerous cells to become more active and grow rapidly as they feed off the radiation energy used in the test.
Detecting breast cancer early is good for quick and effective treatment, however next time your doctor tells you to go for a mammogram team him to advice you on other testing methods because of its health risks.
