My take on the issues

"The high-level United States Preventative Services Task Force of scientists and researchers Monday recommended that breast cancer screening in women should now start at the age of 50 as opposed to 40.

"And it further said that women between the ages of 50 to 74 should be screened every two years instead of annually."

Yeah, definitely. Catching cancer earlier means more stress. If you've got cancer, do you really want to know? NO! Stress is bad for you.

It is better to wait so you are further along and won't have to be faced with all those pesky choices of treatment.

(*Note to sensitive types: Heavy sarcasm was at work)

Good idea, Task Force!
