Why mammography screening is unlikely to be effective today…

Mammography screening is one of the greatest controversies in healthcare, and the extent to which some scientists have sacrificed sound scientific principles in order to arrive at politically acceptable results in their research is extraordinary.

In contrast, neutral observers increasingly find that the benefit has been much oversold and that the harms are much greater than previously believed.

This groundbreaking book takes an evidence-based, critical look at the scientific disputes and the information provided to women by governments and cancer charities. It also explains why mammography screening is unlikely to be effective today. ”

  1. Great book! Another must-read is the recently released (inexpensive) ebook “The Mammogram Myth: The Independent Investigation Of Mammography The Medical Profession Doesn’t Want You To Know About” by Rolf Hefti (you can check out his writing by reading this free article of his :). It’s every woman’s responsibility to have and promote the right information.
