The Business of Breast Reconstructions

Posted by Pam on October 09, 2002 at 14:17:39:

Dr. Stoll:

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, when the cancer establishment's machinery goes into high gear.

They want to find every flaw they can in women's breasts, then they scream "Cancer!"

Women are terrified. The medical establishment plays on these fears. They are predators in search of a weaker prey.

The plastic surgeons circle like vultures around cancer centers. They are waiting for the next victim.

The oncologists will tell the women that they need their breasts cut off. That's when the plastic surgeons go into action.

The oncologists and plastic surgeons work to bring in millions of dollars from the insurance money of women.

A 1990 memo proves that the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive
Surgeons targeted breast cancer patients for marketing purposes.

This memo document number is DCCKKA038329 and is located at the Breast Implant Depository in Birmingham, Alabama.

Plastic surgeons knew they would lose money because of the ban on Silicone Implants in 1992, and so they moved from augmentation to reconstruction sales.

Plastic surgeons pushed the U.S. Congress to approve the Women's Health & Cancer Rights Act of 1998. This act requires insurance companies to pay for reconstructive surgeries, after mastectomy.

It is no surprise that the American Society of Plastic Surgeons recorded a 180 percent increase in breast reconstructions between 1992 and 1999.

Breast reconstructions involve Silicone or Saline Implants or Tissue Transfers.

Silicone was banned for augmentation in healthy women, but the FDA approves them for breast cancer patients!

With all the bad publicity about breast implants, the plastic surgeons moved onto tissue flaps, which the FDA could not regulate.

Two forms of tissue flaps are the TRAM Flap and the Latissimus Dorsi Flap.

During the TRAM Flap the abdominal rectus muscles are severed from the pelvic bone. The Latissimus Dorsi Flap requires the removal of the back muscle.

Now that women have been disabled by both these operations, the plastic surgeons have moved onto the DIEP Flap.

This operation does not sacrifice muscles, but carries equal consequences of flap death, herniation, necrosis, etc.

Do you wonder why women are confused? The whole thing becomes a hunting game. Women are the target and the cancer establishment is the hunter.

They want to diagnose as many breasts flaws as possible. Then they sell mastectomies, which are often unnecessary.

The women don't want to be left ugly and mutilated, so the plastic surgeons sell breast reconstructions. These breast reconstructions leave many women poisoned and disabled.

There are no long-term government studies to prove the safety of breast implants or tissue flaps for breast cancer patients.

The oncologists and plastic surgeons are using women to make millions of dollars, while ignoring the Hippocratic Oath.

The breast implant manufacturers and plastic surgeons are in business to sell more and more breast implants. This keeps the stock prices up for Mentor and Inamed Corporations.

The cancer establishment has only the "cut, burn & poison" treatments for women diagnosed with breast cancer. It's a one-size-fits-all medicine.

In alternative medicine, there are many options that can be individualized for each person.

It's important to refocus and stop this hunt to find flaws in women's breasts.

We need to focus on health and wellness.
Prevention and education are the answers.

Thanks,
Pam



The Female Body Is Abherrent?

http://www.criticalmethods.org/jo.htm
Excerpt --

The widespread use of hysterectomy, caesarean section and mastectomy today may be the natural successor to the overtly hostile and damaging surgery of the nineteenth century.

* radical mastectomy
* prophylactic mastectomy
* breast implants

The invisibility of women in the development of the body of knowledge we call medicine has been enforced by the burning of the witches, the exclusion of women from formal medical training until this century, and
the military model on which it is based. It has profound consequences.

One of these consequences is the assumption that the male body and experience is the norm, and the female is the other, is abherrent.

Within medicine there is a secret understanding that the normal body, in fact the normal person, is male, and a white, middle class male at that.

This is not articulated, which makes it difficult to challenge, but is a hidden assumption behind the construction of the medical curriculum, the
definition of illness, the setting of research priorities, and behind therapy.

Do you suppose you can stop posting obvious stuff and go back to posting those more obscure but helpful articles? You post this stuff that people with half a brain can figure our for themselves because you have a bug up your azz about it.
You're a good resource but this fixation of yours invalidated your better work time and time again...

Thanks, Radar.

I agree that Pam's tragic history tends to get her to repeat herself.

However, this is NOT so obious to the public or they would not go so willingly as "sheep to the slaughter" and support the current system so heavily.

If you know of a better way to get the information out to the public, than constant repetition, I would be very interested in hearing it because, currently, I am ashamed of my profession's participation in such a travesty.

A better way

Well Walt,

The better way would require a commitment from the public to
*want* to take a part in their own recovery. It would take a
chancge of consciousness, and it would take a change in our
current society and the "esteem" in which they hold doctors.
The problem isn't totally of the public, and yet it is.
The public supports the medical complex because of their
collective weakness of wanting instant the gratification of
relief from pain & worry, and at the same time totally
believing and buying into the dependence on the medical
complex and doctor-as-god.
Very few people will take responsibility for their own part
as the architect of their ailments (either recent or from a
past life) and give that "power" over to a doctor. From
there, it is a relatively short leap to closing oneself down
to being informed about what is happening to them, why, and
how to repair it. That is part of the reason why the archives
are ignored so much.
The better way requires a change in consciousness on a large scale, and a counter-societal movement (which is occuring)
that values the individual over alligence to authority.

The reason why the people who come here largely think that
you are rude and uncaring is because they are still
imbuded with the alligence-to-authority vibration, and have
not yet made the chance to individual-as-supreme-architect
vibration in their lives.

Good post Pam, thankyou. I know most doctors in the 'medical' world are totally ignorant about and don't look into herbal, natural cures, I've seen it many times.

Thanks, Radar.

You are absolutely right! There was even a one page editorial in Newsweek within the past month about exactly this.

This is one reason it is so paranoid of the AMA to be so panicked about the Complementary Movement that they seek out and revoke the licenses of any MD found practicing it.

The % of patients who will actually help themselves is so small as to be nearly insignificant. However the policy of the AMA is that ANY loss of income is intolerable and they want it ALL.

Seeing Past The Veil of Illusion

Dr. Stoll:

Wouldn't it be great if people would take charge of their health? But, people are not educated to do that.

Many children grow up with their parents taking them them to the doctor for everything. There is no training or education to learn to take charge of their own health.

Naturopaths are suppose to teach people how to help themselves, but naturopaths have been suppressed, so people have not been educated.

In school, students are not taught to take charge of their own health. American public schools are very unhealthy because of all the soda/pop machines, poor lunches, etc.

It seems that everything comes down to money. People will sell out other people to make money. Doctors will sell out their patients to the pharmaceutical companies, and so on.

The media is constantly helping to sell pharmaceuticals and plastic surgeries. Even when people contact the media with true stories, the media refuses to publish the truth.

Congress and State Representatives are the same. They are influenced by those with big money. Women have fought for years to change things with breast implants, but the FDA still allows Silicone Implants for breast cancer patients.

There is a veil of illusion in this world that only a few may see past. I believe that Nicholas Regush is one of those people who are looking past the veil.

Dr. Mercola and Doug Kaufmann are looking past the veil of illusion, along with Dr. Ralph Moss and Shirley at Shirley's Wellness Cafe.

Education is a very big part of teaching people how to take charge of their health, and this bulletin board is teaching us each day how to take charge.

Thanks,
Pam

Thank You. I know there are people who would like for me to stop posting information. But, I am growing and learning each day and I believe all of us are gaining a clearer picture of what is going on.

Seeing Past The Veil of Illusion -OR- Creating More Illusion

Posted by Radar Reader on October 12, 2002 at 06:18:17:

In Reply to: Re: Seeing Past The Veil of Illusion posted by Pam on October 11, 2002 at 23:09:10:

Not stop post. Just stop posting the same stuff. You know, the stuff about TRAM flaps and breast reconstructions.
Posting is NOT therapy, and no matter how much you post about it, it isn't going to help you get over what happened to you.
You continue to post every little article you can find as it relates what happened to you, and of course it is quite evident that this is your pain & your cross to bear but it hardly qualifies as "news." Your first 30 posts probably covered everything anyone ever wanted to know about

1. Plastic Surgery
2. The Horror Of Tram Flap Procedures (complete with pictures)
3. Failed Attempts At Breast Reconstruction (complete with pictures)
4. How Doctos Get Rich From These Procedures

I don't think that repeatedly posting the same thing over and over is going to get you the attention and subsequent
cartharsis you need. Perhaps you should *SERIOUSLY* consider writing a book if you are as concerned as you claim in getting the word out to other women as you say.

Thanks, Pam.

Im MY opinion, ALL of this is correct.

Can you think of anything else either of us could be doing to get the word out?

Namaste`
