Is X-ray mammography accelerating the epidemic of breast cancer?

Abstract


While a growing body of research now suggests that X-ray mammography is causing more harm than good in the millions of women who subject themselves to breast screenings, annually, without knowledge of their true health risks, the primary focus has been on the harms associated with over-diagnosis and over-treatment and not the radiobiological dangers of the procedure itself. In 2006, a paper published in the British Journal of Radiobiology, revealed the type of radiation used in X-ray-based breast screenings is much more carcinogenic than previously believed. Recent radiobiological studies have provided compelling evidence that the low energy X-rays as used in mammography are approximately four times, but possibly as much as six times, more effective in causing mutational damage than higher energy X-rays. Since current radiation risk estimates are based on the effects of high energy gamma radiation, this implies that the risks of radiation-induced breast cancers for mammography X-rays are underestimated by the same factor.

Galina Migalko has completed MD from Uzhhorod Medical University, Ukraine in 1988. She has worked for years in wellness clinics and diagnostic medical centers as Practitioner and Administrator. She has pioneered and developed a revolutionary full body comprehensive medical diagnostic non-invasive, painless, non-radioactive scan which includes a full body medical bio-electric scan, interstitial metabolic pH testing, detailed medical reports and consultation to evaluate all physiological, anatomical and functional information about all tissues, glands and organ systems. She is the world’s leader in non-invasive, non-radioactive diagnosis treatment and early detection of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, metabolic acidosis, circulatory and lymphatic issues, infertility and other preventable and treatable health challenges. In 2011 she has received her NMD from the University of Science, Arts and Technology in Montserrat, West Indies and as CEO and President, founded Universal Medical Imaging Group that centers on the importance and principles of wellness and early detection. Currently she is working on her dissertation in quantum medicine showing the benefits of combining the best from the conventional Western medicine with complementary and alternative diagnostic services and therapies.
