I didn't appreciate being lured into having MAMMOGRAMS from the beginning by my doctor. I now have no trust in doctors and they should all be jailed. Hope all their profits from this MAMMOGRAM scam gets taken away. Where is the justice and why are they able to continue promoting this harmful procedure? President Obama needs to ban this from the U.S.
