All  women invited to mammography screening deserve to know the full facts. They should be offered links to recent papers such as this.

What can you do? Read:

“Breast Beating: one man’s odyssey in the search for an understanding of breast cancer, the meaning of life and other easy questions”
Anshan publishers, 2010
Professor Michael Baum
Professor emeritus of surgery & visiting Professor of medical humanities.
University College London

Breast Beating has been nominated in The People’s
Book Prize non-fiction section for Spring 2011.
You could also vote for it! The book which receives most votes goes through as a finalist. This means we need to get as many people as possible in the next week or so!

If you send an e-mail to your friends and family and ask them
to do this, we could try to reach the top!

The link they need to click on is

http://www.peoplesbookprize.com/

They will need to register with their e-mail address before they can vote,
go to the non- fiction section and then if they want to they can also make a
comment.
Thanks!
