NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine - https://archive.org/web/.

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.”
