In this video clip, Prof. Peter Gøtzsche, MD, author of the book Mammography Screening: Truth, Lies and Controversy notes that…
“We found out in just four weeks, 15 years ago, that mammography screening might NOT work.”
“We have done research on that ever since.”
“We can now substantiate that – it likely doesn’t work.”
Later in the video, Prof. Gøtzsche, MD goes on to say…
“So, if you look at total mortality, we can’t see any effect of [breast cancer] screening.
“If you look at total cancer mortality, remembering that radiotherapy causes cancer in healthy women, you can’t see any effect whatsoever.
“So my conclusion is that [breast cancer] screening should be stopped because it’s harmful.
“Also because one-quarter of women will get a false positive diagnosis, they will get a suspicion of a cancer that is rejected…
“A Danish study has shown that [women] are very worried even three years after they were declared free from cancer.
“The United States sees much more [misdiagnosis of breast cancer].
“It’s about double as many women get a false positive diagnosis because you are more aggressive here in the United States.
“So if you factor in this loss of quality of life in these women, you get a very negative results of [breast cancer] screening since it does not affect your mortality.
“So it is unequivocally harmful.
“We must stop this [screening for breast cancer]…
“Just as we don’t recommend prostate cancer screening in Europe.”
(A new study in the US found the same thing, that comparing counties in the US with the highest amount of women given screening mammography compared to the counties with the lowest amount of mammography screening, there was NO difference in breast cancer deaths over time.)
