“The Mammogram Myth”, the result of an independent investigation by Rolf Hefti, dismantles -error by error- the official medical claims about the value of mammograms, such as that they are very safe and greatly reduce breast cancer mortality.
This (e)book describes the “inconvenient” research data that has been dismissed and disregarded by the traditional medical profession. It is the largely ignored but factual scientific evidence against the use of mammograms.
The official medical claims made by orthodox medicine about mammography appear convincing to both doctors and the public at large. Yet, the theory and claims promoting the screening practice are based on flawed research data and sustained by omitting and discounting relevant dissenting scientific evidence. Mammography is a case of “dogma over science” says the author of “The Mammogram Myth”.
In the foreword to “The Mammogram Myth”, Ray Peat, PhD stated, “Women concerned about the risk of breast cancer will obviously want to read it, and if doctors who regularly advise their patients to have mammograms decide to read it looking for justification of their policy, they will encounter information about cancer in general and health in general that should change their life.”
“The Mammogram Myth” also explores how politics and sociological-economical factors keep the true facts about mammography hidden from the public at large and most “well-meaning” orthodox doctors alike. And the real truth is, by any reasonable standard: mammograms do more harm than good.
