The new breast cancer screening guidelines released by the Canadian Task Force on Preventative Health Care are dangerous, and thousands of Canadian women will die if they are not revised. They ignore expert advice and current data, ignore the importance of early detection of breast cancer, advise against breast self-exams, and expect women to make important health decisions based on inaccurate information. These guidelines will lead to thousands of lives lost.
