What scientists say about the myth that bras cause breast cancer

It seems almost preposterous that a study like this one had to be conducted. But apparently the belief that wearing a bra for long periods of time can cause breast cancer persists, and it turns out the issue hadn't really been studied in scientific fashion.

Last week, the woman who discovered BRCA1, a gene that in a mutated form increases vulnerability to breast cancer, received a Lasker Award for her achievements in medical science. Mary-Claire King of the University of Washington, who simultaneously published an article in JAMA about population-based screening for cancer-related genetic mutations , took the opportunity to call for much wider use of genetic screening for breast and ovarian cancer than currently exists.

Screening All Women Up to Age 75 for Breast Cancer "May Lead to Overdiagnosis"

Increasing the upper limit for breast cancer screening from age 69 to 75 in the Netherlands resulted in a slight decrease in diagnoses of advanced breast cancer, while early-stage cancer incidence increased, according to a BMJ study. Using Dutch cancer registries, researchers assessed incident breast cancer rates among 25,000 women aged 70 to 75 before and after a mass screening program began to include women up to age 75. The incidence rates of early-stage tumors increased after the screening change, from 248.7 to 369.9 cases per 100,000 women before screening.

Buying physician practices does not equate to clinical integration

I read an article recently that implied the practice of hospitals acquiring physician groups encouraged "clinical integration and multidisciplinary team-based health care." The American Hospital Association has a particularly cogent one, which is: "[A practice] needed to facilitate the coordination of patient care across conditions, providers, settings, and time in order to achieve care that is safe, timely, effective, efficient, equitable, and patient-focused.
