Do You Think We Are Idiots?
What is the deal with the Preventive Services Task Force? Mammograms and self-examinations are a key to early detection for breast cancer. You've probably seen a bumper sticker or something like that with "Save the Tatas". Well the Preventive Services Task Force is now saying the opposite.
FoxNews, CNN, and MSNBC...take your pick of news source, all have articles on this nonsense.
"New guidelines from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force say that women age 40 to 49 don't need to have routine mammograms anymore and that breast self-exams aren't recommended in general." (This is from the CNN story.)
If this is what is in store by the powers-that-be who would be a major force in a "Public Option", then that is pretty scary.
