In response to an astonishing study in the news indicating rampant over-diagnosis and over-treatment of 1.3 million U.S. women whose early stage breast cancers were identified through 30 years of screening mammograms, host Susan Larison Danz will review the latest news from multiple sources and reflect upon how it could lead to empowering women to make their own informed choices about mammography.
Wellness Coach Edie Summers, host of the Blog Talk Radio show The Wellness Coach, makes a spontaneous appearance later in the show to talk with Susan about this important topic.
Read Susan's latest blog entry on the topic here, an editorial including links to the original report on the study in the New England Journal of Medicine and to numerous news stories:
