Why Patients Aren’t Informed About Mammograms

Why Patients Aren’t Informed About Mammograms

If doctors don’t understand health statistics how can they possibly counsel patients properly?

Subscribe to Dr. Greger’s free nutrition newsletter at https://www.nutritionfacts.org/subscribe and get a free recipe from his new HOW NOT TO DIE COOKBOOK. (All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from his books, DVDs, and speaking directly support NutritionFacts.org).

Many doctors display a similar ignorance about nutrition. See, for example, Physicians May Be Missing their Most Important Tool (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/physicians-may-be-missing-their-most-important-tool/).

There’s just one more mammogram video to help you decide: The Pros and Cons of Mammograms (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/The-Pros-and-Cons-of-Mammograms).
