Ya, those pesky mammograms, who needs them? Is this the government getting us ready for the future when universal health is the law of the land?
What tests will the government let us have and at what age will we be allowed to have them?
Like myself, I know of women who are alive today because they had a mammogram on request of their doctor and not of a government official.
For most of the past two decades, the American Cancer Society has been recommending annual mammograms beginning at 40, and it reiterated that position on Monday. "This is one screening test I recommend unequivocally, and would recommend to any woman 40 and over," the society's chief medical officer, Dr. Otis Brawley, said in a statement.
