Note to our followers: Our nearly 13-year run of daily publication of new content on HealthNewsReview.org came to a close at the end of 2018. Publisher Gary Schwitzer and other contributors may post new articles periodically. But all of the 6,000+ articles we have published contain lessons to help you improve your critical thinking about health care interventions. And those will be still be alive on the site for a couple of years.

This is what breast cancer awareness looks like in many corners of our country this month.

Alternatively, you could read the rare column like this: “I’m just saying no to mammography: Why the numbers are in my favor, in the Washington Post by journalist Christie Aschwanden (who recently won a National Association of Science Writers Science in Society Award for a piece entitled, “The real scandal: science denialism at Susan G. Komen for the Cure®“).

Addendum on October 15:  Jennifer Lunden sent me a link to the article she had published in the current issue of Orion magazine, “Exposed: The Mammogram Myth and the Pinkwashing of America.”
