[2016 April] 'Oops... It Wasn't Cancer After All,' Admits The National Cancer Institute/JAMA  When the NCI report was released, it was a sort of vindication for those who had been advocating the position that a commonly diagnosed form of so-called “early breast cancer” known as ductal carcinoma in situ was in fact not inherently malignant and should not have warranted the conventional treatments of lumpectomy, mastectomy, radiation, and chemotherapy....On April 14th, in an article titled “Its Not Cancer: Doctors Reclassify a Thyroid Tumor,” theNew York Times reported on a new study published in JAMA Oncology which should forever change the way we classify, diagnosis and treat a common form of “thyroid cancer”:  An international panel of doctors has decided that a type of tumor that was classified as a cancer is not a cancer at all.  As a result, they have officially downgraded the condition, and thousands of patients will be spared removal of their thyroid, treatment with radioactive iodine and regular checkups for the rest of their lives, all to protect against a tumor that was never a threat.

[2016 Aug] Is PSA Testing for Prostate Cancer a Good Idea? (video)  The founder of the PSA test has come up with a couple of articles recently saying that he didn’t design that test for everybody to get it to diagnose prostate cancer. He thinks it’s a wrong therapy that we’re doing. Eighty percent false positives with the PSA testing and here we have the American Cancer Society and the powers that recommend doing yearly PSA screenings....Anything that causes inflammation. Then they go into the whole cancer industrial complex themselves, where they’re getting ultrasounds, biopsies, chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, and most men with prostate cancer can outlive it. If they don’t do anything, they’ll end up dying of something else....I think the numbers are if you’re over 80 years old, about 88% of men will have prostate cancer at the time of death if they do an autopsy. Three percent will die from it, 8% are affected by it. The rest are dying of something else…We’re treating every man as if it’s the same thing and it’s just a disaster.

[2015 June] Human Studies Condemn Ultrasound

[2015 May] 50 Human Studies, in Utero, Conducted in Modern China, Indicate Extreme Risk for Prenatal Ultrasound: A New Bibliography by Jim West  1) Supports Western critics who have long argued that ultrasound contributes to various neonatal and childhood diseases, and neurological epidemics such as ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) and eye diseases.  2) Supports and revives earlier Western animal studies that are critical of ultrasound, yet had been rejected or ignored.  3) Enables arguments for novel disease causation models, for example, chorioamnionitis, neonatal jaundice, bone and tissue malformation, immune dysfunction, and a wide variety of diseases related to broad-spectrum hormonal dysfunction.

[2012 June] HOW SWINE FLU WAS INVENTED By Jon Rappoport  The test used to diagnose Swine Flu was useless. It was misleading. It was obvious it was misleading. But it was used. Why? Because it would provide cover. It would make it seem as if Swine Flu was everywhere on the planet.

[2011 July] Widely used CAD mammography tool fails to find invasive breast cancer, causes needless tests and stress  "In real-world practice, CAD increases the chances of being unnecessarily called back for further testing because of false-positive results without clear benefits to women,” said Joshua Fenton, assistant professor in the UC Davis Department of Family and Community Medicine. “Breast cancers were detected at a similar stage and size regardless of whether or not radiologists used CAD."

[2010 Nov] MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS: CONFUSION By JON RAPPOPORT

[2010 Nov] Lies, Damned Lies, and Medical Science Tatsioni doesn’t so much fear that someone will carve out the man’s healthy appendix. Rather, she’s concerned that, like many patients, he’ll end up with prescriptions for multiple drugs that will do little to help him, and may well harm him. “Usually what happens is that the doctor will ask for a suite of biochemical tests—liver fat, pancreas function, and so on,” she tells me. “The tests could turn up something, but they’re probably irrelevant. Just having a good talk with the patient and getting a close history is much more likely to tell me what’s wrong.” Of course, the doctors have all been trained to order these tests, she notes, and doing so is a lot quicker than a long bedside chat. They’re also trained to ply the patient with whatever drugs might help whack any errant test numbers back into line. What they’re not trained to do is to go back and look at the research papers that helped make these drugs the standard of care. “When you look the papers up, you often find the drugs didn’t even work better than a placebo. And no one tested how they worked in combination with the other drugs,” she says. “Just taking the patient off everything can improve their health right away.” But not only is checking out the research another time-consuming task, patients often don’t even like it when they’re taken off their drugs, she explains; they find their prescriptions reassuring.

[Pap tests] My Early Experience with the Medical Racket

THE DOWNSIDE OF SCREENING FOR CANCER by Ralph W. Moss, Ph.D.   During a routine colonoscopy, Dr. Casarella's vigilant radiologist observed a suspicious-looking area on one kidney, another on the liver, and several small lung nodules as well.  After undergoing further extensive tests including CT and PET scans, a liver biopsy and thoracoscopy (a visual examination of the interior of the chest cavity, necessitating deliberate collapsing of his right lung), Dr. Casarella, in his own words, "woke up in the recovery room after 5 hours, with a chest tube, a Foley [bladder] catheter, a subclavian central venous catheter, a nasal oxygen catheter, an epidural catheter, and arterial catheter, subcutaneously administered heparin, a constant infusion of prophylactic antibiotics and patient-controlled analgesia with intravenously administered narcotics" (Casarella, 2002).  A further 2 weeks of rest at home were needed before the pain became tolerable. After 5 weeks, Dr. Casarella was able to return to work. The total cost of these procedures exceeded $50,000. And Dr. Casarella's various suspicious lesions all turned out to be entirely benign.
