Dr. Veronique Desaulniers on mammogram dangers

Now that it's breast cancer awareness month, my feed is blowing up with mammogram reminders. Here's why I'm gonna do a hard pass on that and go for a thermogram instead.

❌ Mammograms emit LOTS of radiation.... which causes cancer. ❌ Mammograms are known to produce "false positives"... causing you to have additional and unnecessary mammograms & biopsies. ❌ Mammograms don't detect lumps until they're about 5-8 years old. ❌ Mammograms are uncomfortable and even painful for some and can cause traumatic breast injury. ❌ Studies have shown mammograms to be as effective as a self breast exam. ✔ Thermograms don't emit radiation. ✔ Thermograms provide early detection and are much more accurate. ✔ Thermograms don't have uncomfortable compression like mammograms.

Recap: Thermograms are more effective, comfortable and don't emit harmful radiation. And there are local places that offer this.
