When your Doctor recommends Preventative Testing and Procedures
According to Eustace Mullins, homeopathy was the leading medical methodology in the US before the AMA came into existence and squashed it. AMA highly recommends “preventative” testing and procedures. Today I’m looking closer into one in particular. Since my family is conventional, my sister is going for a colonoscopy tomorrow & I can’t dissuade her and since my brother has has a couple, he’s going with her. (Better him than me.) Here is some excellent info to consider if you are being pressured to go for one:
“Every year, about 15 million Americans undergo a colonoscopy. About
15,000 of them die. Not from the cancer. From the screening.” You have one in a thousand risk of dying of a colonoscopy which is actually
much higher than dying from colon cancer which is one in two thousand for those over 50.
“…. meta-analysis of four randomized trials involving
300,000 people found that tests for bowel cancer did not reduce overall
mortality rates. “…screening 1,000 patients for 10 years will prevent two deaths from the
disease. Meanwhile, colonoscopies lead to “serious medical
complications” in 5 out of every 1,000 patients, according to a 2006
report in the Annals of Internal Medicine.” (And my family thinks I’m the nut!)
