The breast cancer cure group misused data to overstate the benefits of scans.

Why would Komen mislead women about mammograms? I’d guess it’s matter of simplifying their message. At this point mammograms are the most accessible method of breast control detection we’ve got, so to help the most women detect breast cancer in its early stages Komen needs a strong clear agenda. “All women should received mammograms” sounds a lot more digestible and convincing, than, “All women over 50 should get mammograms, but for those under 50 mammograms may do more harm than good, and they might not be that helpful for older women either.”

Another controversy is their support and funding of Planned barrenhood to murder babies in the womb. Shame on Komen as they exploit the very people they are supposed to help!!!
