More on medical screening

Randi Rhodes and Debbie Wasserman Schultz are discussing breast cancer screening, and explicitly accusing Bush appointees on the task force of ‘politicizing breast cancer’.

Interestingly, Representative Schultz explicitly gave the downside, in entire, as ‘an unnecessary biopsy’. No mention of the radiation. No mention of complications of biopsy; no one ever gets infected, or has a complication of anesthesia, or has fibromyalgia triggered. No mention of the occasional needless mutilation such as Montel Williams had when he was a young man. Only the rosy scenarios.

(Yes, men get breast cancer, and, no Williams didn’t have it, but, yes, he did have a double mastectomy. He shouldn’t have, but so what? It happened and happens. Discounting the possibility is self-delusion.)
