“Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.

“The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.”  HealthFinder.gov

This month, we are reminded to be aware of our risks and take charge of our own personal health.

We live in a world where almost every vital thing is contaminated in some way or another with cancer-causing agents.  Our air, water and food supplies have been compromised (to put it kindly).    It’s reckless to ignore ways that can help prevent disease.  Such as having our breasts periodically “grammed”.

If you’re like me, you would rather subject yourself to the rack rather than have your breasts squeezed to a 1/2-inch flatness between two cold, hard surfaces.  As if that’s not bad enough, this lovely ritual is always followed by a (sometimes unsympathetic) technician zapping you with radiation.

If you’re one of the many women who has fibrous cysts, mammograms are truly torture!

For years and years, I’ve complained and exclaimed, “There has to be a kinder technology for women!!”

Well, guess what!  There is!  

It is painless and can flag a potential problem one to three years earlier than a mammogram*!

How do you rate mammograms in your list of necessary evils.  Are they your favorite?  Your least favorite?  Do you hate being squished down to the width of a heavy piece of paper SO much that you put them off for years? Or do you just grimace and bear it?

Well, guess what, Ladies!  There’s a painless alternative that can flag a potential problem one to three years earlier than a mammogram*!
