Background, in case you didn't hear it:

A government panel said this week that mamograms should not start until 50, and should only be done every 2 years after that. In addition, they said that self tests are not effective and should not be done/taught.

Last night on the news, they were interviewing doctors who had patients previously diagnosed with breast cancer, who cancelled their treatment appointments saying "The government said I don't need it. That positive test I had must have been a mistake. I'm sure I'm fine."


Does anybody else see that as being really fucking retarded?
