Thank you for sharing the Mother Jones article, I re-read it as well because it’s a lot to take in. I felt it turned most things I had been learned on their heads.

The 6 month mammograms have been going on for the better part of 15 years now with small reprieves of “see you next year” here & there. My apologies for lack of clarity. But she does end up on the 6 month rotation most years. & yes we that is a long time too.

I first read the Mother Jones article shortly after my mother had her most recent mammogram. I thought long & hard about even if I was going to discuss it with her. I found the information disturbing & frustrating.

I hope the information can help someone make the best decision for them.
