How Often To Do Routine (ultrasound) Scans Against Cancer To Be Safe ?

Postby Maxfield » Wed Sep 06, 2017 5:20 am

my grandmother died of thyroid anaplastic cancer. it killed her in 3 months. If she was undergoing screening ultrasound scans each year, it still would kill her, as this developed within few months. so we should do these scans each 2 weeks to discover this crap as soon as poss?

this question applies to other cancer types that develop similarly quick and and can not be cure when give symptoms and that you are not safe doing routine scans say yearly....

How Often To Do Routine (ultrasound) Scans Against Cancer To Be Safe ?

Postby Cordell » Wed Sep 06, 2017 5:23 am

The WHO says here http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs297/en/index.html that 40 % of all cancers can be prevented with a healthy diet, physical activity and avoiding tobacco.

And you want to be careful with radiation-based screening like mammograms, because radiation is well known to cause cancerous mutations.
See my post at http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AjV9Ka7LLXeR04C21Yc_FQHty6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20071129094034AAKWBlY&show=7#profile-info-AA10770017 .

The key is to not just await your fate, but to do something about it.
They key is diet and lifestyle the WHO tells us here http://www.who.int/dietphysicalactivity/publications/facts/cancer/en/ .
They say that diet alone accounts for 30% of all cancers, and many say that's an extremely conservative number (for more on that, see my other posts).
There are some who say it's as high as 90%.
You need to educate yourself in the risk factors that cause cancer.

In my opinion, you should ignore clinical studies as they are clearly conflicting in the data they gather.
Others don't do enough and try to mislead you into thinking that diet changes won't help, when nothing is further from the truth.
I'm not the only one saying that, see Dr. Dean Ornish at this site - http://www.rd.com/content/dr-dean-ornish-column/ .
He said that JAMA published the Women's Health Initiative study involving 49,000 women.
But it was useless.
He said, "Given how small the changes in diet were, it's not surprising that there were little effects. If you don't change much, you don't improve much.
By analogy, it's as though the women in one group reduced the number of cigarettes they smoked each day from 60 to 57 and in the other group from 60 to 55. You wouldn't expect to see much difference in the rates of lung cancer in these two groups. In other words, they didn't test the hypothesis."

That's the kind of conflicting (engineered to fail?) studies and trials I'm talking about.
He says "the more people changed their diet and lifestyle, the more improvement we measured. In order to reverse disease, people needed to make much bigger changes than most doctors had been recommending." That's right, not just prevent, but reverse disease through diet.
Dr. Ornish's organization does their own studies because of the conflicting and just plain wrong information gathered from other studies that only further coerce and confuse people into accepting there's nothing they can do about their health.
There's clearly a movement to get people to think they are powerless when it comes to disease, but that's just not right.
The WHO and many other MDs, not just alternative medicine practitioners, are saying there's adequate evidence to definitively determine that diet and lifestyle are major causes of disease.

Your tax dollars paid for Dr. T. Colin Campbell's studies on nutrition as he worked with the NIH, ACS and AICR for more than 40 years.
He used the scientific method to determine the findings written in his book, The China Study.
He says things like "a good diet is the most powerful weapon we have against disease and sickness" on page 3.
He says on page 7, "people who ate the most animal-based foods got the most chronic disease.
Even relatively small intakes of animal-based food were associated with adverse effects.
People who ate the most plant-based foods were the healthiest and tended to avoid chronic disease." And, one of my favorites is on page 3, "[cancer and disease] all come down to three things: breakfast, lunch and dinner."

"Cancer is a degenerative disease and as such can be reversed." - page 45 of A Cancer Battle Plan.
"Cancer is, after all, a disease of a weak immune system." - page 53 of the same book.
Also see more information from my post at http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AsVDsQ5CGwkzhx56UqlGDR7sy6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20071202171527AA5YcLt&show=7#profile-info-hDiqbJF7aa .

There's many that will tell you they ate well and still developed cancer.
But just remember what Anne Frahm said on page 45 of A Cancer Battle Plan - "I had always thought I was eating a good, healthy diet." I'm not telling you if you eat well you won't get cancer, but I am telling you that you can dramatically reduce your risk of disease.
Ann Fonfa at http://www.annieappleseedproject.com said that it took both diet and herbs.
I know people that reversed leukemia and pancreatic cancer with diet and strong, potent supplments (not the drug store variety).
Both were given 3 months to live by the medical community.
The one with leukemia, when originally diagnosed, had a lymphocyte count of 56.2% on 11/19/98, and after the diet and supplments, on 9/22/99 her lymphocytes dropped to 28%.
She started eating fish and cheating on her diet because she was doing so well, and she started getting sick and her lymphocytes went back up to 61%.
After a quick diet change, she dropped them back down and is doing great.
Her MD told her, "whatever you're doing is working." But they won't publish this kind of data.

So the question is, do you care about conflicting clinical trials or do you care about results?

You should undergo complete medical checkup every year. If there are abnormal signs and symptoms, then the doctor will conduct further tests including ultrasound scan.
