Since Obamacare has come on the scene, I find it interesting how many of these 'studies' have hit the news. Apparently, we have been far too aggressive all this time in treating prostate cancer, liver cancer, and now breast cancer. And let's not forget those pesky annual mammograms! PHOOEY!! Who needs 'em?!! PS - The 'NEW' mammogram guidelines are every other year and no more after 74! My mom is 82 and looks about 50! She has gotten one every year since turning 40 even though there is no family history. This year, they found something, and thank GOD she was still having an annual mammogram or it would have been too late if they'd have waited a year. This is the Obama death panel! Death by non-diagnosis and treatment-lite.
