Mammograms Again Found to Have No Impact on Mortality

Do annual mammograms save lives? Several studies over the past few years have concluded that mammograms do not save lives, and may actually harm more women than they help, courtesy of false positives, overtreatment, and radiation-induced cancers. According to research1 published in 2010, the reduction in mortality as a result of mammographic screening was so […]
