Alternate Headline: Dear Gabby Giffords…
Far left wing, anti-gun website says 6,000+ women are killed each year with guns (take that number with a grain of salt)
Every year mammograms diagnose more than 1,000,000 women in this country with an abnormality that would never become life threatening… often leading them to being treated with radiation and possibly treated with tamoxifen, a drug that increases risk of uterine cancer.
And I quote…
This means that my chances of being harmed by a mammogram are far greater than my likelihood of being helped.
Mammograms also lead to a 54% higher likelihood of women getting breast cancer.
40,000 women die of breast cancer each year. If only 16% of those are women who had breast cancer from the increased risk posed by mammograms then its safe to say that mammograms pose a bigger threat to the lives of women than guns.
