Cancer Prevention Coalition: The Breast Cancer Awareness Month Misleads Women
Date:10/16/2007

d by women was admitted in 1985 by the ACS. "We must keep in mind that at least 90% of the women who develop breast cancer discover the tumors themselves." Furthermore, an analysis of several 1993 studies showed that women who regularly performed breast self-examination (BSE) detected their cancers much earlier than women failing to examine themselves. The effectiveness of BSE however depends on training by skilled professionals, enhanced by annual clinical breast examination by a professional. In spite of such evidence, the ACS and radiologists dismiss BSE, and claim that "no studies have clearly shown the benefit of using BSE."

A leading Massachusetts newspaper featured a photograph of two women in their twenties in an ACS advertisement that promised early detection by mammography results in a cure "nearly 100 percent of the time." An ACS communications director, questioned by journalist Kate Dempsey, responded in an article published in the Massachusetts Women's Community's journal Cancer "The ad isn't based on a study. When you make an advertisement, you just say what you can to get women in the door. You exaggerate a point ... Mammography today is a lucrative [and] highly competitive business." She just couldn't be any more correct.

With this background, it is not surprising that the NBCAM neglects to inform women how they can reduce their risks of breast cancer. In fact, we know a great deal about its avoidable causes which are trivialized or ignored by the ACS. These include:

-- Prolonged use of the Pill or estrogen replacement therapy.

-- High consumption of meat which is heavily contaminated with potent

natural or synthetic estrogens, or other sex hormones, implanted in

cattle in feedlots prior to slaughter to increase muscle mass.

-- Prolonged consumption of milk from cows injected with a genetically

engineered growth hormone to increase milk production. This milk is

contaminated with high
