Aren't mammograms life saving for women over
excerpt from Chapter Five of Breast Cancer? Breast Health!

In several studies, yearly mammograms of women aged 55 and older reduced
breast cancer mortality by one-third. But this doesn't mean any one
woman's risk is reduced by one-third according to Dr. Peter Skrabenek,
a critic of mass screening. Furthermore, the women enrolled in these
very successful mammographic studies received regular physical examination
of their breasts, which-by itself, without risk-reduces breast cancer
mortality. The vast majority of breast cancers found in older women
are slow-growing, non-metastasizing, and not life-threatening, no matter
when they're found.
