Shock study: Mammograms a medical hoax, over one million American women maimed by unnecessary ‘treatment’ for cancer they never had

(NaturalNews) Mammography is a cruel medical hoax. As I have described here on Natural News many times, the primary purpose of mammography is not to “save” women from cancer, but to recruit women into false positives that scare them into expensive, toxic treatments like chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.
The “dirty little secret” of the cancer industry is that the very same oncologists who scare women into falsely believing they have breast cancer are also the ones pocketing huge profits from selling those women chemotherapy drugs. The conflicts of interest and abandonment of ethics across the cancer industry is breathtaking.
Now, a new scientific study has confirmed exactly what I’ve been warning readers about for years: most women “diagnosed” with breast cancer via mammography never had a cancer problem to begin with!
93% of “early detection” has no benefit to the patient
That’s the conclusion of a groundbreaking new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).
“We found that the introduction of screening has been associated with about 1.5 million additional women receiving a diagnosis of early stage breast cancer,” writes study co-author Dr. Gilbert Welch.
Now, at first, you might think that’s a good thing. You might think, “Well, early detection saves lives, just like we’ve been told by Komen and the cancer non-profits.”
But you’d be wrong. As Dr. Welch’s team discovered, there was virtually no reduction in late-stage breast cancer from all this “early” diagnosis, meaning that most women who were told they had breast cancer after a mammogram were being lied to.
As he explains:
We found that there were only around 0.1 million fewer women with a diagnosis of late-stage breast cancer. This discrepancy means there was a lot of overdiagnosis: more than a million women who were told they had early stage cancer — most of whom underwent surgery, chemotherapy or radiation — for a “cancer” that was never going to make them sick. Although it’s impossible to know which women these are, that’s some pretty serious harm.
