Early Breast Cancer Screening in women of color is critical, and now there is AngioScan the first non-invasive breast cancer screening device. The AngioScan Early Breastest does not use radiation and is more reliable than mammography in the detection of tumors and identifying where tumors will take place.

This is racist.....blacks shouldn't be given anything that white women don't have. If time frames are changed...then they need to be changed for both. Quit promoting racism

There is early evidence that some breast cancers may be associated with a deficiency of vitamin D. Researchers are exploring the connection. Blacks are more likely to be deficient in vitamin D because it is manufactured when sunlight strikes skin, and this is not as easily accomplished when skin is very dark. Even many whites are deficient in vitamin D during the winter, when sunny days are fewer and people are inside more. At the least, blacks should consider taking a pill containing 800 iu of vitamin D daily. This amount is well within the margin of safety.
