Vol. 5, No. 10 -- March 10, 2012
This week in New World Notes, radio program #210, March 13, 2012
This week, a brief first look at a very large subject: corporate-controlled, for-profit medicine.
We feature 2 interesting articles. One examines the booming business of diagnostic CT scans. Problem is, researchers have found that the biggest identifiable cause of breast cancer is ... CT scans.
The other article exposes the Susan G. Komen organization as a right-wing tool of Big Pharma. It's an outfit that has no interest in preventing breast cancer, and it turns a blind eye to the ways its corporate backers are causing breast cancer.
Plus remarks by Ralph Nader, Dr. Susan Rosenthal, and me.
I condensed and edited both articles for radio broadcast. The original texts are here: http://www.counterpunch.org/2011/12/26/the-leading-cause-of-breast-cancer/
and here: http://www.counterpunch.org/2012/02/09/the-komen-con/ . Thanks to the authors and CounterPunch.
