My parents, senior citizens, have become convinced, after reading a study by the prestigious-seeming Cochrane Institute, and the campaigns of its leader Dr. Peter Gotzsche, that mammography causes more harm than good and should be avoided, not just for screening but for diagnosing any potential lump. It has them afraid of radiation, and convinced there is a growing realization that mammography is too dangerous. Is it right to draw this conclusion from this study, and what does it all mean?
