    This is so confusionizing.

    First, the GOD panel says women don't need mammograms and men don't need PSA tests because the risk of the tests is worse than a few people getting cancer.

    And now it has come to light that the TSA has glossed over the cancer concerns for x-ray screening.

    What's up with this? The government has been scaring everybody for years about CANCER (enough to cause one to start smoking to deal with the stress). And now, we're supposed to have this cavalier Que Sera Sera attitude.

    Something strange is afoot at the Circle K Street.
