Before I launch into today's important news, I want to say that this is the last blog for a couple of weeks. Assuming that the weather does not prevent our flight to Tokyo from departing tomorrow, my husband and I are leaving for two and a half weeks in Burma and Cambodia. We are very excited! I have lived in Southeast Asia, and we have traveled there together in the past, but these will be new experiences. Plus, there will be no snow or ice or bitter cold winds; actually, it will be in the high 90s and very humid, and that is not so great either. I will have intermittent email access, but am not taking a computer, and am going to try to take a vacation. So, back on line here on March 2nd or 3rd.
The big news in Breast Cancer World today is a vast Canadian study, published in The British Medical Journal, that again questions the value of screening mammograms in saving lives. (remember that screening mammograms refer to the general population of women, not to us)
