Studies suggesting that screening tests like mammograms should be used less do not always find receptive audiences. ~ Ed.
Every year, millions of women flock to their doctors to get their annual mammograms, a breast cancer screening procedure that involves pressing a woman’s breasts between two metal platforms to scope out tumors. But surgeons everywhere are starting to question the controversial practice, which studies show isn’t even an effective screening tool, and is actually harmful to the bodies of women who receive it.

NOTE: The following was originally offered as a two-part presentation by the author dealing with both the “losing” and what he believed to be the “winning” side of the issue. We present both sides of the war in a single posting for your education and consideration. ~ Ed.
Part I: Losing the War on Cancer
In 1971, President Richard Nixon announced the War on Cancer and promised a cure by the 1977 bicentennial. In 2009 death rates from cancer are significantly increased and…..no cure is forthcoming! The failure of chemotherapy to control cancer has become apparent even to the oncology establishment. Scientific American featured a recent cover story entitled: “The War on Cancer — it’s Being Lost.” In it, eminent epidemiologist John C. Bailar III, MD, PhD, Chairman of the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at McGill University cited the relentless increase in cancer deaths in the face of growing use of toxic chemotherapy. He concluded that scientists must look in new directions if they are ever to make progress against this unremitting killer.
Cancer incidences have grown from 1 in 500 to nearly 1 in 2 today!
The report recommends that pediatricians take a more active role in explaining to parents the value of childhood play.
Kids need to play. It seems like an obvious statement, as central to childhood as eating peanut butter-and-jelly sandwiches and chasing fireflies. For generations, parents have known that a play-filled childhood is essential for healthy physical and mental development. They didn’t need to read the latest research findings on play. They didn’t need experts to tell them it’s important. They just knew it. Kids are designed by nature to play, and parents have generally let them. Continue reading
Study finds feces is common on toothbrushes in shared bathrooms
It’s enough to put you off brushing your teeth altogether.
According to a new study, there is a 60 per cent chance your toothbrush is covered in poo, regardless of how well you clean it.
And that’s not all. If you share a bathroom, around 80 per cent of that faeces will belong to another person. Continue reading
Maintaining healthy hormone levels can be a challenge but it is possible. Following a diet that supports the thyroid is a good place to start. It should provide certain nutrients, like iodine and selenium, that naturally support normal thyroid health. Additionally, it’s important to be mindful of other types of food that can actually interfere with hormone balance and thyroid function. Let’s take a closer look at how you can use the power of nutrition to support your thyroid and encourage normal hormone balance. Continue reading
Turmeric is one the most thoroughly researched plants in existence today. Its medicinal properties and components (primarily curcumin) have been the subject of over 5,600 peer-reviewed and published biomedical studies.
Given the sheer density of research performed on this remarkable spice, it is no wonder that a growing number of studies have concluded that it compares favorably to a variety of conventional medications, including: Continue reading
The Food and Drug Administration has issued a voluntary recall for a thyroid medication made by a Chinese manufacturer because of potential problems with an ingredient.
In the Aug. 9 statement, the FDA said Levothyroxine and Liothyronine 15 mg, 30 mg, 60 mg, 90 mg, and 120 mg thyroid tablets are being recalled as a precaution. Continue reading
General Mills’ Cheerios are one of the first solid foods many parents feed to their children. They’re small, convenient and easy to chew — and there’s even a section on the Cheerios website for “new parents who have invited … original Cheerios to introduce their children to finger foods.” Continue reading
After all… Dr. William D. Kelley is the reason that this site was started for him back in 2000. We honor his legacy and continue to battle for the victims of this dreaded dis-ease – to this very day. We thank researcher Paul Fassa for his continued efforts. ~ Ed.
During the 1960s, a small town Texas dentist discovered a way to cure his terminal pancreatic cancer; he then proceeded to cure others of all kinds of cancers until the Medical Mafia struck him down. His name was William Donald Kelley, DDS, MS. Continue reading
Your urine color reflects what you eat and drink, and even the medications you take. But it’s a red alert for any shade of red, black, or brown, especially when accompanied by other symptoms.
Pretty much everyone knows his or her normal urine color (or subtle range of urine colors). If the shade changes a great deal, however, we can become a little alarmed.
But hold on. While urine color is a centuries-old diagnostic tool, many shades of yellow can be perfectly normal, even if they vary from nearly colorless to dark yellow. Continue reading
Most of us who are reading this most probably have unhealthy levels of acidity in their bodies. This is as a result of the high tech foods that we put into our bodies every day. These foods have been so processed that there are hardly any nutrients left in the foods. Then as if to deliberately make matters worse, these over-processed foods have been stuffed with all kinds of artificial or lab-created nutrient chemicals that do more harm to our bodies than good. All these are the causative agents of a high acid body that can become a perfect ground for diabetes, obesity, and cancers. Continue reading
NOTE: Ignore the dates and the general commentary (at least the reference to Obama and/or Ready Teddy) – pay attention to the NEED for the attached pdf. ~ Ed.
August 2, 2009 – With all of the ruckus regarding the Obama-Care (he really doesn’t) Bill, or the Kennedy-Legacy HellCare Bill, currently being discussed all over the nation, some, bright individual realized that amongst the first things each and everyone of us should do, is to require our medical Practioners (or is it ‘Practicers‘?) to sign a contract, which will indemnify said doctor for all harm, which comes our way due to his/her diagnosis and prescriptions administered.
And so, as of the date of this repost (July 30, 2018) – what has changed? Nothing – absolutely NOTHING! Thus, the following should be considered BY ALL! Click on….
More evidence from a new study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute that CT scans increase the risk of brain tumors.
The use of computed tomography (CT) scans has increased dramatically over the last two decades and Radiation-induced cancers have tripled in that time. Diagnostic imaging has been already been admitted as a cause by the U.S. government. Continue reading
Americans are breathing enough of a common household chemical to CAUSE Cancer
Interfering with the formaldehyde study is one of several steps Trump’s EPA has taken to side with the businesses the agency is supposed to regulate and undermine the agency’s approach to science, critics say. | Pablo Martinez Monsivais/AP Photo
Burying the formaldehyde study is part of an effort by Pruitt and aides to undermine EPA’s research program, current and former officials tell POLITICO.
The Trump administration is suppressing an Environmental Protection Agency report that warns that most Americans inhale enough formaldehyde vapor in the course of daily life to put them at risk of developing leukemia and other ailments, a current and a former agency official told POLITICO.
