Think Beyond Pink – Mammograms-Science Questions the Need

Dr. Veronique Desaulniers, or Dr. V, addresses some eye-opening scientific reviews on the pros and cons of mammography. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month really puts the push towards every woman getting a mammogram yearly after the age of 40. Is there really scientific evidence to back up we hear in the media? Listen carefully for some studies by the Journal of Clinical Oncology, the Radiological Society of North America, the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, the British Medical Journal, JAMA, the Lancet and others. Women need education about our present screening system and Dr. V gives us a mix of ideas including mammograms and thermograms- a safe, painless, radiation free screening.
