JAMES CRYSTAL RADIO Talk WFTL-A/FT. LAUDERDALE-WEST PALM BEACH afternoon host JEFF KATZ is launching a "Bras for Boobs" campaign in response to the controversy about new federal guidelines suggesting that women under 50 who are not in the highest risk categories forego routine mammograms.
KATZ said, "I want the Federal government to keep their hands off of my wife's breasts. I'm asking my listeners to mail a bra to their Member of Congress and each of their Senators to let them know that we don't agree with the boobs at the DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH HUMAN SERVICES U. S. PREVENTIVE SERVICES TASK FORCE who seem to think that the lives of women just don't matter. Their suggestion that women between the ages of 40 and 49 should not get routine mammograms is shocking since it follows the example of the U.K.'s NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE, where women only receive this vital screening after the age of 50 which helps to explain why the mortality rate for breast cancer in the U.K. is a staggering 88% higher than it is in the U.S. I'm hoping that my listeners will step up to the plate, become part of our B4B team, make a donation to the AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY and help save some lives!"
