Pro Mammogram advocates scramble to discredit and shut down study findings

The pro mammogram industry is scrambling to shut this study down and get women back to "Business and Usual":

Twenty five year follow-up for breast cancer incidence and mortality of the Canadian National Breast Screening Study: randomised screening trial

BMJ 2014; 348 doi: http://dx.doi.org/10.1136/bmj.g366 (Published 11 February 2014)
Cite this as: BMJ 2014;348:g366
Conclusion Annual mammography in women aged 40-59 does not reduce mortality from breast cancer beyond that of physical examination or usual care when adjuvant therapy for breast cancer is freely available. Overall, 22% (106/484) of screen detected invasive breast cancers were over-diagnosed, representing one over-diagnosed breast cancer for every 424 women who received mammography screening in the trial.

The conclusions of the researchers are not good for the breast screening industry: Mammograms are no more effective than physical examinations and there is over-diagnosis and consequent over-treatment of those undergoing mammograms.

These findings would be much worse if they were to take account the increased lifetime risk of developing cancer as a consequence of exposure to harmful xrays from mammograms.

As I said, the breast screening industry and health officials are scrambling to shut this study down.  Who is right?  Well, what I suggest you do is take some time to carefully read the study, as reported in the BMJ and pay particular attention to the "Related Content" and "Read Responses" tabs and then make up your own mind as to the safety and effectiveness of mammogram screening programmes.

Here is the link to the BMJ article: http://www.bmj.com/content/348/bmj.g366

I urge you to read this e-book by Rolf Hefti about the Myth of Mammograms.

My position on this matter is clear:  I do not advocate mass screening of women using xrays.  I advocate breast thermogram screening which is totally safe while being effective.
