The US Preventive Services Task Force recently made the suggestion that women don't need to get mammograms until they're 50 years old, instead of 40 like previously thought. They also recommend getting tested every other year instead of annually. Can you guess which breast cancer survivor said this in response?
"We have gotten ourselves into a big, deep hole in the way that we look at health care. We are in a system where they get money when we're sick. That's never going to work for us. So when someone says, 'You don't need a mammogram until you're 50,' you take charge of that. I don't trust any of that."
