Another way insurance companies are trying to squeeze the cancer out of their pockets....the consumers who pay huge amounts in premiums.

Shame on insurance companies.

Instead of spending so much time and energy discussing DETECTION of breast cancer, let's focus on PREVENTING this disease! How do you reduce the risk or prevent the disease:
Regular exercise, don't smoke, don't drink alcohol, don't become overweight or obese. Eat large amounts of fruits and vegetables and whole grains. Limit meat and dairy products to no more than a few small servings per day. Eliminate processed foods, such as white flour and white sugar. Exercise every single day.
If every American woman did her part and did these things, breast cancer rates would plummet.
I do all of that yet still had stage II breast cancer at age 46. All the doctor would say was "ideopathic." Sometimes you just can't help I guess.
