Everytime I turned on the TV this past week, the topic was the new mammogram suggestions from the Feds...

A government task force said Monday that most women don't need mammograms in their 40s and should get one every two years starting at 50 -- a stunning reversal and a break with the American Cancer Society's long-standing position. What's more, the panel said breast self-exams do no good, and women shouldn't be taught to do them More (http://bulletin.aarp.org/yourhealth/diseases/articles/new_mammogram_advice_raises_questions_concerns.htm l?CMP=KNC-360I-YAHOO-BULL&HBX_OU=51&HBX_PK=mammogram)

Is this to be taken seriously? Is this what we can expect with national healthcare? Obama has already said that "less" healthcare is better. Is this part of the plan?
