Overdiagnosed cancers...
#1
Well most of us knew this already, but it's nice to see someone trying to point it out.

Patients suffer invasive treatments for harmless cancers

https://medicalxpress.com/news/2020-01-p...ncers.html

"The figures suggest that in 2012 24 percent of cancers or carcinomas in men were overdiagnosed. These included 42 percent of prostate cancers, 42 percent of renal cancers, 73 percent of thyroid cancers and 58 percent of melanomas.

For women, 18 percent of cancers or carcinomas were overdiagnosed, including 22 percent of breast cancers, 58 percent of renal cancers, 73 percent of thyroid cancers and 58 percent of melanomas.

The figures are significant because of the harm that can occur from cancer treatment of patients who would never have had symptoms in their lifetime.

"Cancer treatments such as surgery, radiotherapy, endocrine and chemotherapy carry risks of physical harms," the authors of the study reported."

Figured I'd mention it since it's a very significant aspect of the modern psyche regarding health and cancer racketeering, as well as involving nuclear crap and other toxins, general corruption, misguided "healthcare", etc. Unfortunate that damage from cancer screening itself (rather than just damage as a result of overdiagnoses) isn't studied/mentioned.
