Chicago, IL (PressExposure) October 05, 2009 -- On Saturday, October 24, 2009 at 3:30, Ravenswood Chiropractic and Wellness Center will host guest speaker Dr. Nicholas LeRoy, D.C., Dipl.Ac., director of the Illinois Center for Progressive Medicine. Dr. LeRoy will discuss breast cancer prevention, genetics, mammography and breast thermography. Dr. LeRoy has been featured on NBC and CBS news, and local radio as a holistic medicine expert and lecturer at Gildaâs Club of Chicago on breast cancer prevention and treatment.
The American Cancer Society estimates that over 200,000 women will die from breast cancer every year. Currently, physical examination and mammography are the standard-of-care in breast cancer detection; however, mortality rates have not changed appreciably for forty years. Dr. LeRoyâs presentation will focus on breast thermography. According to Dr. LeRoy, âResearch has proven that infrared breast thermography identifies cancers not detected by mammography, assists in earlier detection, and improves survival rates by up to 61%. Because thermography does not use radiation or breast compression, it will not promote breast cancer.â There have been 800 research studies on breast thermography.
