New Mammogram Guidelines Worry Some Doctors
Health Related

Most women should wait until age 50 to get mammograms and then have one every two years, a government task force said Monday in a major reversal that conflicts with the American Cancer Society's long-standing recommendation of annual screening starting at 40.

After listening to Dr. Love (a leading breast cancer doctor) I think the new guidelines are more in tune with the rest of the world and more in line with what experts have really wanted. Leave it up to congress meddling to have really goofed it all up in the past few years.

I hear of more and more women in their 30s getting breast cancer. Perhaps it should be recomended for women at 30 but mandatory after forty.

The new guidelines say 50 unless you have a history of it in your family. Then they recommend exams sooner. I believe that is how Dr. Love said it.

American Cancer Society Continues Defending Planned Parenthood Grants

The American Cancer Society's grants to Planned Parenthood 'to improve the health of the unborn fetus" is about as practical as the Susan G. Komen Foundation's hundreds of thousands of dollars" worth of grants to the abortion giant for the imaginary mammograms Planned Parenthood offers.

Yes, Planned Parenthood does deliver babies"¦about 330,000 every year. The catch is these babies are delivered through a vacuum piece by piece, sucked into a jar, and thrown out as medical waste in the name of "choice." Ref. Source 1

Colon and rectal cancers surge among millennials and Generation X

Colon and rectal cancers have increased dramatically and steadily in millennials and Generation X adults in the United States over the past four decades, researchers from the American Cancer Society report in a study published Tuesday in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Someone born in 1990 has double the risk of early colon cancer and quadruple the risk of early rectal cancer as someone born in 1950. While scientists have not pinpointed an exact cause, prime suspects include obesity, inactivity and poor diets. Ref. USAToday.

Colon and rectal cancer screenings should start at an earlier age, new guidelines say. If you're in your mid-40s and haven't had your colon checked, it might be time.

The American Cancer Society's newly updated guidelines for colon and rectal cancer screening recommend that adults at average risk get screened starting at age 45 instead of 50, as previously advised.

The updated guidelines come on the heels of what seems to be a rise in colorectal cancer among younger adults. Ref. CNN.
