California Passes Breast Density Bill

September 16, 2011
by Brendon Nafziger, DOTmed News Associate Editor

The California State Legislature passed a bill last Friday requiring doctors to inform women if they have dense breasts after a mammogram, making California the second state this summer and the third state so far to have passed a so-called breast density law.

The bill, SB 791, passed the state Senate 35-1, and is now going before Gov. Jerry Brown to get signed.

When he signs it, starting next year, Calif. radiologists will have to send women with dense breasts, as determined by an American College of Radiology-developed system, this text:
Because your mammogram demonstrates that you have dense breast tissue, which could hide small abnormalities, you might benefit from supplementary screening tests, depending.........Read more

Thermography Detects Breast Cancer "Too Early"

Guess what the flaw in thermograms is? A thermogram detects breast cancer TOO EARLY. That's right. Unless the breast cancer is very advanced, thermograms detect cancers too early for chemo, too early for a lumpectomy, too early for conventional medicine to do the things that are considered "Standard of Care" for breast cancer

Low dose radiation and breast cancer risk

According to the International Journal of Cancer, some forms of low-dose radiation treatment, including chest xrays and for acne treatments, may increase the risk of breast cancer, particularly in genetically susceptible women.

DITI Wikipedia

The US National Cancer Institute states:
“The use of thermography, also known as digital infrared imaging, is based upon the principle that chemical and blood vessel activity in both precancerous and the area surrounding a developing breast cancer is almost always higher than in normal tissues. This activity frequently results in an increase in regional surface temperature of the breast. Thermography uses ultra-sensitive infrared cameras and sophisticated computers to detect, analyze, and produce high-resolution images of these temperature variations, which may be the earliest signs of breast cancer.

Radiation from CT scans done in 2007 will cause 29,000 cancers and kill nearly 15,000 Americans, researchers said Monday. The scans have more radiation than previously thought Reuters reported on Dec 14, 2009

New advice: Wait until 50 for mammograms

A government panel's recommendation is a major reversal that conflicts with the American Cancer Society's long-standing advice. Benefits of screening before age 50 don't outweigh risks, task force says.

"DITI is especially appropriate for younger women between 30 & 50 whose denser breast tissue makes it more difficult for mammography to pick up suspicious lesions. This test can provide a 'clinical marker' to the doctor or mammographer that a specific area of the breast needs particularly close examination.

Breast cancers tend to grow significantly faster in younger women under 50:

Under 50 80 days
Age 50 - 70 157 days
Over age 70 188 days

The faster a malignant tumor grows, the more Infrared radiation it generates. For younger women in particular, results from DITI screening can lead to earlier detection and, ultimately, longer life."
