Re: Changing of mammogram guidelines

I don't think this is stupid. You have to consider all the factors: Younger women have dense breasts. Mammograms are worth next to nothing in finding tumors in dense breasts. One mammogram is equal to 1,000 chest xrays in radiation dosage. I could go on with more reasons but the point is you do yourself a big favor eating right and having a healthy immune system. Cancer is caused by an impaired immune system. Abnormal cells are not recognized and destroyed by am impaired immune system. Daily doses of Vit D and a rainbow diet, plus trying to decrease your level of exposure to toxic chemicals in the environment will greatly decrease your risk of getting bc. Mammograms are very ineffective in finding bc in women under 50 and increase your risk of cancer by exposing you to excess radiation. We need to learn to look at both sides of the issue before we label things stupid. Just sayin'
