    Very pleain the newssed to see this story on our recently updated expert report in yesterday’s PARADE Magazine.

    Dr. Ranit Mishori‘s Stay Healthy column reminds readers that the recent controversy over mammograms should not distract women from the convincing evidence that diet, weight and physical activity make a big difference in lowering risk.

    Includes a nice quote from AICR Director of Research Susan Higginbotham, PhD, RD.

    A great way to start the week!
