AN ALTERNATIVE TO MAMMOGRAMS
There's an alternative to mammograms that appears to be able to detect breast cancer tumors two to three years earlier than any other method. It uses infrared technology that was developed for the space shuttle as a way to test the integrity of materials used in the construction of the shuttle. It's called Thermal Image Processing (TIP) and was developed by Maurice Bales. The system eliminates the pain, as well as, emotional and physical trauma from false positives and has no side effects.
You can get a list of locations that conduct TIP from his company's website at www.balesscientific.com . While the system is not widely available (radiologists would rather not have to buy another piece of expensive equipment), the more people ask their doctors for it the more pressure there will be to get it.
