You Have Spoken! Poll Results

 You have spoken! 

 
Over 97 % of you who took our web site poll disagree with the proposed new mammogram guidelines that would push examinations off from the recommended 40 years old to the proposed 50 years of age. The new guidelines also suggest eliminating breast self examinations.
I think both new proposed guidelines are another example of the weakness in government controlled health care. Health is a private personal matter that does not belong as a discussion point for legislators. Most women are perfectly capable of making their own health decisions. They need the support of their insurers. It should not be an adversarial relationship. The current attitude among many in the health care reform movement is that we are too dumb to be trusted with our decisions. This attitude only jeopardizeswomen’s health.
Reach out to your elected senators and make sure they understand your point of view on health care reform. Go to their website at::
