Ignoring the Science on Mammograms

 “Women in the mammogram group were just as likely to die as women in the no-mammogram group.”

“Mammograms increased diagnoses and surgeries, but didn’t save lives.”

“For years now, doctors like myself have known that screening mammography doesn’t save lives, or else saves so few that the harms far outweigh the benefits.”
