Here’s the problem: Women believe that mammograms prevent breast cancer. They don’t.
Why do women think that mammograms prevent breast cancer? Because the race for a cure is backed by a profit-driven healthcare system that is geared up for early diagnosis and treatment, which generates a great deal of money, and mammograms are the cornerstone of that initiative. In order to convince women that prevention is a high priority when it is not – less than 2% of all breast cancer research dollars go to primary prevention of the disease – the breast cancer industry and the philanthropies that answer to it have cleverly retooled the meaning of prevention to trick women into thinking that mammograms are a means of prevention. I repeat, they are not.
Here’s a solution to the conniving, a way that you can actually prevent breast cancer: you can exercise regularly for 30 minutes four times a week. In study after study involving hundreds of thousands of women, time and again researchers have found that exercise reduces the risk for breast cancer substantially – 30-50%!
But there’s more. If you are one of the 3 million women in this country who have already been diagnosed with breast cancer you will be more than happy to know that exercise decreases breast cancer mortality by 50%!
Now my personal trainer, Charlene Circele (featured in the photo) is fantastically skilled at working with women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. She’s also great with those who want to keep from getting it. Charlene is so committed to the Pure Cure – prevention – that she offers a free one-hour exercise consultation for any woman who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. What’s not to love about that?
