Interesting News in the World of Breast Health...
Switzerland is recommending abolishing routine mammography screening
 
In February 2014, after the Swiss Medical Board examined all of the current evidence, they released a report concluding that there was a lack of benefit as well as potential harm with the mass-screening mammography program presently offered.

They stated that the evidence does not support the common belief that mammography is safe and is capable of saving lives and therefore recommended re-evaluating this routine screening. Citing many recent studies and important factors, including the perception of value, they also advised that women be informed in a 'balanced' manner of the benefits and harms of screening.
 
You may have heard of these two powerful documentary series online in the past year and a half:
 
The Truth About Cancer: The Quest for the Cures 
The Truth About Cancer:  A Global Quest
 
There are hours of interviews and valuable health information from doctors, scientists and survivors from all around the world. 
 
Of note, there is a lot of talk about breast testing and the role of thermography throughout, especially in episode 7 of The Quest for the Cures, and in episode 2 of A Global Quest.
 
THIS JUST IN....
Breast thermography has caught the attention of a huge player in technology, XEROX.  They are looking at developing a thermal camera to do screening for breast cancer.  Perhaps this is one step toward making thermography mainstream?
 
We will definitely be keeping up with these developments!
