On Behalf of Our Breasts: The Dark Side of Screening

Runtime: 52m 34s | Release date: 2016

Breast cancer kills. But are blanket programs that screen all women, rather than those with symptoms, doing more harm than good? Controversially, studies into the effects of these programs show they do not reduce the risk of dying from breast cancer. Healthy women are receiving unnecessary diagnoses of pre-cancerous conditions that are unlikely to develop and many are harmed by unnecessary treatment. We follow four women from around the world who are facing the fear of cancer.

Featuring:

Dr. Philippe Autier
Dr. Gilbert Welch
Dr. Bernard Duperray
Dr. Peter Gøtzsche
Prof Jean-Luc Harousseau
Dr. Daniel Rea

I found this very interesting. I know there are always two sides to every story but the fact that you hear very little from this side concerns me and I am glad it has given me something to consider. I will certainly do more research before making another appointment.

Thank you for this film. I am 46 and just got the call today to go for my first mammogram. After watching this and a number of other documentaries I know it won't be part of my life...

sadly, these women are not informed that breast cancer, as with any other cancer, can be treated by a change in eating habits to a whole food plant based diet...eliminating all processed foods. it has been proven that cancer feeds on sugar and that animal products increase the rate of cancer. check out The China Study by T Colin Campbell PHD. also check out Dr Caldwell Esselstyn, who has reversed heart disease in his patients through a whole foods plant based diet.

Thank you for this film. I have had 2nd thoughts about having these screenings in the past and I once went 4-5 yrs without having it done & was told I needed to go back which I did twice. But in the process I don't feel that I should be worried about NOT having it done. This film puts me completely at ease with my recent decision to NOT have them any more. I have felt the same way as the one woman who sails. If I find a lump, then yes, I'll go in but otherwise NO.

It is so disillusioning to truly know that the Almighty Dollar is what matters to these people who are making decisions about OUR LIVES. That's why this channel matters, and why we should all be advocates of our own health.
