But the changing room, really just a closet off the stark windowless space that houses the mammogram machine, contains something far worse, I notice for the first time now an assumption about who I am, where I am going, and what I will need when I get there. Almost all of the eye-level space has been filled with photocopied bits of cuteness and sentimentality:
To see any graphs, charts, graphics, images, and quotes to which Dr. Greger may be referring, watch the above video. What was the impact of the shift in recommendation to delay routine screening until age 50?
Ironically, mammography rates of women in their 40s may have actually gone up. Inthe American Cancer Society split the difference, and recommended starting at 45 annually, and then switching to every other year at 55—suggesting this would decrease the lifetime risk of dying from breast cancer from 2.
From an ethical perspective, a public health program that does not clearly produce more benefits than harms is hard to justify.
But, in reality, the numbers appear to look like this. First of all, the risk of dying from breast cancer regardless is smaller than most women think, and the reduction in risk—the differences in size of the orange boxes—is much smaller, maybe only one in a thousand women benefits.
Imagine if you were in that one in a thousand family whose mom was saved.
But, that may not be true. How does that make sense? And so, had they not been picked up, the women would have been none the wiser: How common is that, though? Harms can include death. Imagine being in the family whose mom was killed. Radiation treatments to the chest increase the risk of dying from heart disease and lung cancer.
Now, those may be acceptable risks, if you actually have breast cancer that would otherwise kill you. Treatments that are beneficial for real patients can be lethal for those who never should have been treated in the first place.
I mean, if you catch a tumor early, maybe you can avoid a mastectomy? The opposite may actually be true.Shop Pink Ribbon Paper & Pads at Staples.
