Susan G. Komen Foundation in Mammogram Controversy

Two Dartmouth University professors recently slammed the Susan G. Komen Foundation for using "unreliable" statics in a breast cancer awareness campaign that ran last October, saying it gave a false representation of the survival rate of women who were screened and diagnosed early versus those who were not. The professors also said the foundation "oversold" the benefits of mammograms and failed to report on potential risks. (Photo: Courtesy of Komen.org)
