The organizations that did these new studies have their heads buried in the sand. I have had 3 friends who had cancer in their late 20's. One had a radical mastectomy and the other two are doing quite well thanks to the mammograms and self-examination. My other friend age 40 had ovarian cancer. My daughter's friend age 39 was just diagnosed with breast cancer by having a mammogram.
I can't believe that any women would believe this new information. I would tell these organizations with their new findings to go pound sand.
Don't we want to live to and have a beautiful healthy life, raise children, see them get married, and see grandchildren?

It's all about rationing health care. It'll be interesting to see what new "study" we'll see next saying we don't need some vital health screening. Maybe physicals. Yeah, physicals. Think of all the money saved if people didn't undergo physicals!

We have the swine flu vaccination debacle thanks to our government. The government run post office is billions of dollars in debt. The stimulus that provided all these so-called jobs that it really didn't provide - well, just another government bungle. And people want the government to take over health care. I just don't get it. Oh, yeah, and Medicare, the gov. run program with all the billions in fraud and waste. Out government is known for fraud and waste and yet some people want gov run health care.
