The cancer industry has apparently become so desperate to recruit new
customers that it is now resorting to what can only be described as a
type of medical date rape. A number of hospitals and cancer centers
across the country are reportedly now holding community-driven
“mammogram parties,” a deceptive cancer marketing scheme that basically
entails deliberately getting women tipsy or drunk on alcohol with their
friends and neighbors in order to entice them into getting medically
molested via mammograms.

The horrendous bait and switch tactic is taking place under the guise
of “saving lives,” as it is specifically designed for women who feel
uncomfortable with getting mammograms, and who would otherwise avoid
getting them if it were not for the added pressure of being wined and
dined in a comfortable and relaxing environment. Women are being
encouraged to “grab their girlfriends” for a night out at the local
cancer center, during which time they take turns getting blasted with
ionizing radiation in between munching down fancy cheeses and chocolate
fondue, and sipping down delectable wine.

“It may be a good way to improve compliance and make having a
mammogram more enjoyable,” claimed Dr. Julie Silver, an assistant
professor at Harvard Medical School, to ABC News about the disturbing
mammogram party phenomenon.

 

Are mammogram parties an organized form of medical date rape?

It is interesting that Dr. Silver would use the word “compliance” in
conjunction with mammograms, as the word is generally used in reference
to someone giving an order or command to do something. This, combined
with the fact that cancer centers which hold “mamm” parties are
basically having to induce inebriation in order to convince many women
to get mammograms, shows how slyly coercive the cancer industry is
becoming in its quest to recruit new cancer patients.

With thousands of women waking up to the fact that mammograms are
much more dangerous than we are all being told, and a cause of cancer in
and of themselves, it is hardly surprising that the cancer industry has
sunk to unconscionable new lows. And yet at the very same time, getting
women drunk in order to compress their breasts for a radiation
screening is technically a form of rape, or at the very least,
molestation with alcohol and ambiance representing the date rape drugs
of choice.

Even worse is the fact that many insurance companies are now covering
the costs associated with holding mamm parties, which include not only
food and beverage costs, but also all the massages and other luxurious
spa resort amenities that increasingly characterize many of the
gatherings. Whatever it takes to get women to subject themselves to
radiation blasts is fair game, in other words, and it appears as though
the specious strategy is quite a success.

“I am having fun,” explained one woman attending a recent mamm party
in Nevada to KTVN Channel 2 News in Reno. “Way better than the last time
I came here and had [a mammogram]. This time it didn’t hurt. Maybe it
was the glass of wine I had before I went.”
