Let's see if Joe Simitian also tells the women of his district that mammograms might not be all that healthy--
Mammograms may lead to breast cancer "overdiagnosis" for some women:

There ought to be a law that requires physicians to notify men when they have dense brain tissue.
I'm all for the government supporting women's health options ans funding real care. But,why are women and specifically our breasts being singled out for legislation that has lawyers making medical decisions for physicians?

There is an irrational focus upon breast cancer-and a very dangerous obsession with potentially toxic screening and interventions.
Many, many more women die prematurely and painful from
1/ Smoking related diseases-lung,head and neck cancers-etc
2/ Obesity related diseases-diabetes, heart disease-etc
Than die from breast cancer.
Male prostate cancer is a much greater public health problem than breast cancer.
The focus upon breast cancer is a matter of fashion, money and politics
-rather than science and evidence based medicine
Enough is enough
