    Women should be (although most of them are not going to be) extremely suspicions of this new study. Here is why...

    If you knew that the most influential pro-mammogram studies are significantly flawed, that large well-conducted studies showed no significant reduction in breast cancer mortality from the use of mammography use, that the pro-mammogram scientists have tendency to minimize and disregard the serious risks of mammograms (Kopans, co-author of this new study is one of them), that (almost) all pro-mammogram studies are performed by researchers with vested interests -such as Kopans (read the ebook "The Mammogram Myth: The Independent Investigation Of Mammography The Medical Profession Doesn't Want You To Know About" by Rolf Hefti), would you conclude that this new study is credible and reliable?
