New study questions mammograms / Rob Stein | September 23, 2010 / Washington Post / Mammograms can come at price.

Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: Starting late May, 2009 I posted a new site: http://www.BreastHealing.info to get out the verifiable scientific truth about mammograms and that chemotherapy causes much more serious side effects than positive results.

Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: It is disturbing to me that Bill Gates who has made $billions from so many people around the World could stump to this level of activity. How can anyone have a right to decide who should or should not have offspring?

Just following guidelines spelled out at this site will show you why: Many doctors are good people, that simply have to get re-educated later, when they find out natural, organic and nutrient rich foods from non-animal sources will often reverse the effects of severe illness better than drugs, chemicals, radiation or by surgically removing body parts.
