The American Cancer Society's New Mammogram Guidelines

Hosted by

The American Cancer Society has changed its recommended age for women to start getting annual mammograms from 40 to 45. That's caused uncertainty for young women and doctors. What's worse, the risk of false positives that lead to fear and unnecessary treatments or the risk of death?

Later on the program, police chiefs and prosecutors from all over the country met at the White House to advocate a new strategy for the war on crime: send fewer people to jails and prisons — while making America safer.
