I recently had a health journalist interview me about the new guidelines for mammography under 50.
You may recall a storm of controversy was touched off in December 2009, when the US Preventive Services Task Force recommended that mammography begin at 50. Sarah Palin went so far as to compare these recommendations to "death panels" under health care reform. The controversy died down, and health care reform legislation was rewritten to ensure access to mammographic screening.
