Abnormal Heart Rhythms

submitted by: admin on 02/18/2015
Abnormal heart rhythms may arise because peri-infarction tissues are very irritable and electrically unstable. These rhythms can compromise cardiac output and be lethal. It is very important to take your medicines if you have a problem with abnormal heart rhythms because they can result in a reduction in cardiac output that can be critical. Dr. Saputo recommends...

Atrial Fibrillation

submitted by: admin on 02/19/2015
  Atrial fibrillation occurs when the top part of the heart, called the atria, beats at around 300 beats per minute and leads to ineffective contraction of the atria. This predisposes to clots forming in the left atrium that can break off and travel to the brain and block circulation and result in strokes. Anticoagulation is the treatment of choice but...

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder vs Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

submitted by: admin on 05/24/2016
New research shows that children's risk for learning and behavior problems and obesity rises in correlation to their level of trauma exposure. These findings should encourage physicians to consider diagnosing PTSD rather than ADD/ADHD, which can have similar symptoms to PTSD, but the treatment is very different. A Stanford University study examined kids...

Breast Cancer Before Age 40

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
Preventing breast cancer is best. Mammograms for early detection in women under 40 is very poor. They under & over diagnose far too often as do ultrasounds and MRIs. Breast thermography is far better.          

Breast Cancer Can Spontaneously Disappear

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  Most of us believe that cancer only on rare occasions will disappear on their own, but our first inclination is to get rid of it. However, there is interesting new evidence that refutes this and calls into question what we're doing to deal with breast cancers clinically.        

Breast Cancer Screening

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
Should mammograms be done on women under the age of 50? The BCDDP study published in 1983 is reviewed. Five of six biopsies are not cancers. Older data on breast biopsies that suggests they spread cancer; it was later shown to be false.    

Breast Cancer Screening Premenopausally

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  No mainstgream screening test is reliable and they can lead to widespread overtreatment. A positive mammogram leads to too many biopsies, especially in dense breasts. Breast thermography is superior.            

Canadians Recommend Fewer Mammograms

submitted by: admin on 06/18/2016
  The Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care now recommends mammograms every three years, no self breast examinations, and no clinical breast exams. They believe these procedures cause too many needless biopsies, mental anguish, and over treatment. This also leads to massive overtreatment of DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ) which is only life-threatening...

Dealing With a Diagnosis of Cancer

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
When you find out you have cancer life often becomes very challenging. Most treatments are toxic and have a lot of side effects.

Do Mammograms Do More Harm Than Good?

submitted by: admin on 04/24/2017
Mammograms under age 50 are controversial. The prestigious Cochrane Study Group concluded that they lead to overdiagnosis and overtreatment. Mammograms use x-rays to differentiate tissue density that is normal or cancerous; this is very difficult in women under age 50 because they have dense breast tissue that is similar to that of breast cancers. It takes almost...

Finding Breast Cancer Sooner

submitted by: admin on 09/21/2013
  Breast cancer is the leading cause of death in women between the age of 40-44. We are trying to find breast cancers earlier in hopes of curing more. Yet screening technology is not working. Of the women who had breast cancer 28% had a mammogram and it was missed. Most biopsies are negative; this leads to excess cost and worry.
