PSA SCREENING: MEN NOW WARNED AGAINST IT!

Posted In:
Blog | Health News | Newsletter

By Dr Bruce West

“Based on PSA screenings, twenty men receive prostate cancer diagnoses for every one man who benefits. Since screening does not really affect mortality (death rates), one million men have been treated unnecessarily!1

Health Alert, Vol. 27, No.1

Talk about an about-face…just like Health Alert, the American Cancer Society (ACS) is now backing away from yet another cancer screening scam-the PSA test. They are now actually warning men about the test, saying it is of questionable value and can do men more harm than good. For good measure, they also say that screening doesn’t really save lives, and any benefits come at a high price. In addition, the ACS is warning about the likelihood of false test results and the side effects men suffer due to medical treatment initiated by false PSA findings. Finally, they want to stop community screenings in which hundreds of men line up for free PSA tests.

The new guidelines stir doubts among men and physicians alike. And they should, since they mimic the very same guidelines given here in Health Alert-the very same ones deemed quackery and charlatanism over the 10 years that I have published them. This is just one more example of what the medical establishment does with a basic truth that flies in the face of medical-gold-standard thought. First, that truth is vehemently denied, and the one proclaiming it is branded a charlatan and a quack. Then it is simply ignored for as long as possible. When it won’t go away, and it can no longer be covered up, it is boldly announced, as if it is a new medical discovery.

If I get a PSA test, it is only for sheer curiosity. If I ever had a high PSA level, I would never use it to climb up the medical ladder to further exams and biopsies. And even if I had prostate cancer, I would never, no matter what, submit to the medical gold standard of prostatectomy and radiation. In addition, if I ever had benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH), I would never submit to drug treatment that might offer minimal relief, but that could destroy my bladder in the process.

Instead, I would use Cataplex F (4-6 daily) and Palmettoplex (3-6 daily) along with Blue Ice™ Fermented Cod Liver Oil (3-4 capsules daily). If I had an infected prostate, prostatitis, or even prostate cancer, I would add Arginex (9 daily), Cataplex E (6 daily), and Cyruta-Plus (12 daily) to my protocol. I would then use the PSA test to judge the effectiveness of my program over 3 months and then 6 months time. For more information on these products contact us.

If I could not clear up my BPH, I might consider laser surgery. If I could not control my prostate cancer, I would consider Triple Hormone Blockade Therapy.2 Either way, I would stay on my protocol until I had the prostate problem resolved. That’s how I would maintain a healthy prostate and treat any prostate problems. And I would not rely on the PSA screening for much of anything, except the progress of my own protocol. Just call me crazy!

Pandemonium over New Mammogram Guidelines

Posted In:
Blog | Health News | Newsletter

By Dr. Bruce West

The uproar over the change in recommendations for mammograms has been predictable, unreasonable, political, and financial. It all happened after a well-respected organization, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) broke ranks with the medical establishment and sided with Health Alert and others. They recommend that mammogram screenings begin at age 50, instead of age 40, and that they be done every other year instead of yearly. What followed was shock, horror, anger, resentment, blustery political posturing that used the new guidelines for political gain, and more.

To date, all the women’s groups, mammography groups, most medical groups, (including the American Cancer Society and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists), congressmen, and even the President’s office have distanced themselves from these new meaningful and evidence-based recommendations. Even Rush Limbaugh has ridiculously called the new recommendations an insult to women and the first of the new onslaught of “rationed care.”

The truth is exactly the opposite! The evidence to start mammograms was based on one study back in the 1970s! That study showed that mammograms could result in a 30% reduction in breast cancer deaths in women over age 50, but no benefit for women in their 40s. The clinical trial, for the Health Insurance Plan of Greater New York, followed women for 3 to 5 years, and did not even bother to follow them after that time. These study results were picked up by all the medical groups who sought to lower the age for first mammograms to 35. The American Cancer Society (ACS) agreed, and mammograms were started at age 35! The ACS quietly rescinded the age 35 recommendation in 1992, but the practice continued for 10 years anyway.

Over-treatment

The truth is that mammograms do not save lives. Even The Lancet reported in 2001 that mammography screening resulted in overtreatment without reducing mortality. To date, the Cochrane Collaboration continues to monitor mammography research. According to the Chochrane analysis of all the research, mammograms detect tiny cancers. One in three of these are meaningless and will not cause a problem. But there is no test that can sort out the potentially lethal cancers from those that are meaningless. Therefore, virtually all cancers are treated aggressively with biopsies and radiation, and even chemotherapies, surgeries, and more. Some women have even undergone double mastectomies because of these findings when they didn’t have a real problem at all! In the medical research world, this is simply referred to as over-treatment.

In the end, mammographic screening for breast cancer results in the overtreatment of huge numbers of women-all for no benefit. The screening does not affect overall mortality (deaths from all causes), and the benefit for breast cancer mortality (the number of women who would die from breast cancer) is small to insignificant. And this is for all women who start mammography at either age 50 or 40! In fact, the USPSTF, after examining the real statistics, concluded only 1 in 1,900 women who undergo mammography for 10 years would avoid a breast cancer death!

So a smart group has finally called for a reduction in a procedure that can result in overtreatment that can maim, injure, and even kill women-a procedure that offers little statistical benefit, even when started at age 40. But everyone is horrified, the politicians are distancing themselves because they want to pass “health care reform,” and the doctors and medical groups, who will lose business, are up in arms.

Over the years, women have been sold a bunch of lies-lies for money, politics, power, vanity, paybacks to special interests, and worse. It is all sickening and still going on. The mammography debacle is having a light shined on it. In addition, these same “experts” also caused, at the very least, 20,000 cases of invasive breast cancer a year for 25 years with estrogen prescriptions. This practice continued even though lots of people like myself begged them to quit. Quite frankly, all these medical “experts” owe an apology-on their knees-to the collective female population over the age 35! Instead, women get even more confusion because their doctors and the medical groups in whom they have placed their trust, are “angered,” “shocked” and in “horror” over the new mammography recommendations. In fact, the USPSTF and all non-biased medical scientist agree that these recommendations are the only ones that really make any sense.

Who was that Health Alert guy who was condemned for saying the same thing for years!?
