22. People can read the links and judge for themselves and mammograms can cause cancer

This is in the news today as well

so...

the sites that I linked do have studies on the comparative risks and exposures


FYI the study publicized today says:

"Among the findings:

High-risk women were two-and-one-half times more likely to develop breast cancer than women in the general population.

High-risk women who had mammograms or chest X-rays before age 20 were two-and-one-half times more likely to develop breast cancer than high-risk women who were not exposed to low-dose radiation.

High-risk women who had mammograms or X-rays after age 20 were one-and-one-half times more likely to develop breast cancer than high-risk women who were not exposed to low-dose radiation, but that finding could have been due to chance."
