from the Telegraph
"In the past 20 years, since it was established, the NHS Breast Screening programme is believed to have detected more than 100,000 cancers.
But now it is feared that the "inconvenience" of screening is preventing women from keeping their appointments.
A spokeswoman for the NHS Cancer Screening Service said: "Busy women put off going because the clinic is difficult to get to or the timing of appointments does not fit their lives. They don't have time," she said.
Embarrassment, discomfort and fears that the procedure may be painful were also deterrents, she said."
I think the organisers should stop speaking of 'discomfort' and 'fears' of pain, as though the procedure is not painful. - It is extremely painful for many women, for fat women in particular, because their breasts are more delicate to start with. And their delicate skin and veins become extra painful from the pressure exerted on them by the procedure.
Breast cancer risk can be lowered by reducing salt intake.
Lose weight safely, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, heart attack, vascular dementia, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs, hunger or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!and FAT RETENTION
