Vast Study Casts Doubts on Value of Mammograms posted 02/12/2014, 7:12 AM (The New York Times)

One of the largest and most meticulous studies of mammography ever done, involving 90,000 women and lasting a quarter-century, has added powerful new doubts about the value of the screening test for women of any age.

It found that the death rates from breast cancer and from all causes were the same in women who got mammograms and those who did not. And the screening had harms: One in five cancers found with mammography and treated was not a threat to the woman’s health and did not

I can't recommend Gary Taubes' book highly enough. I've been on the paleo diet for perhaps two months now and I'm leaner than ever. Trying to control your weight through portion control is a fool's game. The weight just melts off you when you're not choking down grains.

I must say I find it hilarious eating basically the opposite of what the government recommends is actually the healthiest thing you can do.

The state says eat a high carb, low fat diet, and as Taubes shows that horrible advice created the obesity epidemic. In reality, you should be eating a high fat, low carb diet. It's hilarious how all the "help" the state gives us always has the opposite effect.

"Scientists added that people who eat a diet high in red meat were also likely to be generally unhealthier because they were more likely to smoke, be overweight and not exercise."

All this means is the people who are generally unhealthier also eat red meat, it doesn't mean the red meat is the cause of their unhealthiness, correlation is not causation. They assume that simply because red meat contains saturated fat, it's bad for you, see Gary Taubes' work to counter that argument.
