Na Im be the fact sey confusion breaki bone.....double wahala for deadi boodi and im owner.
Mammograms cause Breast Cancer indeed
Voodoo Science at its best..........
in that case, x ray would cause bone cancer as it is just the same technology.
me i have no faith in american medical journalims as it is always geared towards big profit companies that want to sell drugs.
maybe there is a new screening technology they want to advertise, like the swine flu 419 epidemic
Ijebu garri causes throat cancer and madness.
A bit of cynicism is healthy, but before you defenestrate the idea the website that published this article does not represent 'big profit companies'. As a matter of fact they are anti Big Pharma. And while I do not always agree with 100% of all their articles, especially the methodology of some of their so called research, it does raise some pertinent questions.
Recurrent exposure to any form of radiation is bound to significantly increase the probabilities of getting cancer, which is why I think mammograms are questionable.
depends on recurrent. are you having a mammogram every day?
the radiation from your mobiles constant use, is possibly more than a mammogram would give you in lifetime.
Women under 40 have been advised to abstain from mammograms, while women in their 50's have been advised to only have a mammogram every two years. Previously the USPSTF advised women over 40 to get mammograms every year.
Voodoo science, I think not!
There is no evidence to suggest that regular mobile use causes cancer!
By recurrent exposure to radiation, I meant X-rays... we're talking about X-ray's used in mammograms.
I had previously written that medicine is the art of risk management, that remains the case. There is nothing in this world that does not have risks, but these risks have to be considered along with the possible benefits.
The headline "Mammograms cause breast cancer" can be considered nothing but irresponsible!
Broad levels of risk for common X-ray examinations and isotope scans
This is news to me, may be because we are in different countries. In the UK, screening mammogram is offered to women 50 years and over , not because of higher rate of cancers in "mammogramed" women but because the interpretation of results are more difficult in premenopausal women leading to lots of false positives and invasive procedures in this age group (under 40 asymptomatic and no risk factors).
On the 3 year or one year question, the UK tend to screen 3 yearly because yearly "mams" have not been shown to prolong life, increases the risks from mammograms though it would pick up some interval malignancies.
It would be better advising women (in the screening group) to avail themselves of screening mammography while reducing their consumption of groundnut (which leads to high cholesterol, and may contain the carcinogen aflatoxin)
PS: Abeg where can I buy Naija roast groundnut in London? It is the tastiest G nut known to man!
Bunch, headlines are meant to grab your attention not lull you to sleep.
A friend posted almost a Kilo of Naija roast granut that he re-gifted me, from his loot....boy with garri and ice.it was heaven in a bowl...
aflatoxin gbakwa oku.
