Monologue

Dr. Wallach starts the show discussing a letter in Parade magazine from the makers of the osteoporosis drug Boniva. The letter is directed towards consumers contending the company may not have been completely honest about the side effects. Also admitting that the drug doesn't build bone as previous advertisements had implied.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a couple of news articles regarding health. The first concerns doctors in Brazil in trouble for removing organs for transplant while the patients were still alive. Next they discuss a study that has determined that women who get annual mammograms as recommended by the American Cancer Society will have at least one false positive result over a 10 year period. While 7 to 9 percent will undergo a biopsy that reveals no cancer. Now researchers are calling for revised guidelines of biannual mammograms contending this will reduce the number of false positives by one third.
