USPSTF Breast Cancer Epidemiology Nonsense, Part 3

Yesterday Health and Human Services Director, Kathleen Sebelius, tried to do some damage control in regard to the the public response to the new United States Preventive Services Task Force guidelines regarding screening mammography. She said to women "keep doing what you've been doing for years" and indicated that the task force " does not set federal policy and they don't determine what services are covered by the federal government".

One of the task force members, Dr. Timothy Wilt, indicated that he stuck by the new recommendations.

I don't have anything new to say about this. I am just providing updates for those who are following this issue.

Thought for the day

Keep it simple.
