[2011 June] The FDA assaults breast thermography while protecting mammography industry First of all, it slanders the breast thermography industry and the multitude of mainstream medical journal articles supporting its value. As a point of interest, the FDA approved breast thermography as an adjunct to mammography in 1982. You would think that there just might be a reason or two supporting its value that they appreciate but fail to mention....There is an abundance of scientific evidence in the mainstream journals supporting that breast thermography as a superior tool to mammograms because it is more sensitive and makes fewer errors when used properly, particularly in women under the age of 50, where there's tremendous controversy about the validity of mammograms as a primary screening tool for breast cancer. The final embarrassment for the FDA and Journal Watch, is that three of the five people voting against bringing breast thermography forward into clinical practice in that fatal meeting in 2004, had a serious conflict of interest connecting them to the mammography industry. Wow!
