Master herbalist David Christopher traveled to speak at a cancer-prevention symposium in India and found out the speakers only had 15 minutes each to talk. He says: "I was devastated. Over 39 hours of travel to speak for 15 minutes? Surely I needed two to four hours to adequately cover this important subject." So he consolidated his material down to diet, lifestyle and mammograms.
"I made reference ot the lack of wisdom in pressing the breast between two metal plates with 35 pounds of pressure and irradiating this delicate tissue with radiation levels higher than chest x-rays, on an annual basis.
