The Best Medicine for Breast Cancer w/ Dr. Ken Miller

Every year, 230,000 women are told they have breast cancer and 40,000 will die. In this hour-long look at this disease, Oncologist Ken Miller explores its treatment, its history as a public policy issue, and its direct impact on women. We talk with the Inventor of the most significant breakthrough cancer therapy of the last 25 years, and hear doctors debate how often and at what age women should get a regular mammogram. We also hear the stories of three women who speak about every choice they made from the discovery of their breast cancer tumors to where they are today. We also explore the odd social history of this disease, including a review of women’s magazines which demonstrates that for year, American women were told that breast cancer was caused by tight bras and bad sex.
