bOObs: The War on Women’s Breasts investigates the controversy swirling around the breast cancer screening test mammography. Over a 30-year period, mammogram’s use led to over-diagnosing 1.3 million U.S. women, resulting in needless treatments for breast cancers that otherwise may not have spread.
Women share heart-breaking stories of how this test tragically left them permanently maimed following questionable diagnoses. One woman describes how her cancer exponentially worsened following the physical trauma from mammograms to her biopsied tumor.
Medical experts scientifically debunk the mammography myths of “early detection” and “low radiation,” which are amplified by cancer associations, women’s health groups, and governmental agencies worldwide. Requiring more mammographic scans, large- and dense-breasted women are left uninformed about the increased risk for radiation-induced cancers.
Non-conventional medical doctors reveal that the two painless tests of thermography and ultrasound are together a preferred protocol: the former is capable of detecting cancer precursors years before a tumor forms, and neither test contains radiation. Yet the 20-billion-dollar mammography industry — facilitated by insurance companies and governmental agencies — prevents the wide-spread use of these two tools for breast cancer screening.
Finally, experts break down how questionable science in medical journals and self-interests of big corporations are largely responsible for sending women down this frightful path.
The first feature documentary undertaken by WayMark Productions, “bOObs: The War on Women’s Breasts” (Oct. 6, 2020 target release date), investigates the world of mammography and a possible new breast cancer screening protocol used side-by-side: thermography and ultrasound. A short documentary by the same name won numerous film festival awards, and was written, produced and directed by Megan S. Smith, M.S. It will be distributed worldwide by Los Angeles-based Cinema Libre Studio.
WayMark Productions investigates areas otherwise overlooked or underreported by mainstream media. Currently concentrating on health issues such as cancer and Lyme disease, WayMark intends to broaden its mission in upcoming years to include other topics having an adverse effect on the world and its people.
WayMark Productions, LLC, was founded by Megan S. Smith, a screenwriter of 13 years and now documentary filmmaker.
Having carried out thesis work in molecular genetics for her master’s in biology, in addition to an undergrad pre-med curriculum, Smith is uniquely qualified for investigating areas in health fields, carrying WayMark’s vision forward. Smith has written several investigative journalism pieces as a freelance writer on Lyme disease, one for The Washington Post.
