In recent days, a few local voices of reason have managed to rise (faintly) above the din of fear-mongering that has dominated media reports on the new breast cancer screening recommendations issued last week by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF)…
On Monday, Paul Scott, a freelance writer based in Rochester, Minn., (and who wrote this Second Opinion blog while I was on vacation last fall) took the Mayo Clinic to task in the Rochester Post-Bulletin for rejecting the task force’s evidence-based guidelines. “Mayo is hardly the only organization reluctant to stand behind this unpopular but objective science on breast cancer screening,” wrote Scott.
