Mammograms and Breast Cancer

Hello, my name is Doctor Calvin Ross and I am a certified X-ray technician and I am very concerned about women continuing to receive annual Mammograms for breast cancer screening. This is video 1 of 3.

My first question to you is this: Are Mammograms Safe?


Why are Mammograms NOT safe?

Mammograms are X-ray radiation and radiation causes breast cancer.

I have carefully researched the history of mammograms and breast cancer and here are the documented facts from my professional literature research from around the world.

Mammograms were introduced in 1965 and just four years later in 1969 the first report appeared stating X-ray radiation was causing breast cancer.

For the last forty years the evidence has been nonstop and clearly documents the extreme threat in developing breast cancer after being exposed to dangerous X-ray radiation.

The current feud regarding mammograms exploded on Monday November 16, 2009 when the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) announced to move the beginning age for annual mammograms from 40 to 50 because the risk of the radiation from mammograms causing cancer far out weighted the benefits of receiving mammograms in this age group. There is a national conversation that has ignited fear and confusion in women across America. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force is mandated by law[1] to conduct the scientific evidence that supports current medical procedures.

The purpose of my documentary is to support the intelligent, sensible, and wise recommendation of the U.S. Preventive Service Task Force and assist giving women the true facts regarding mammograms and breast cancer.

Women have now become confused and are seeking answers as to what to do for their breast cancer screening. Woman has now let fear take over their logical minds regarding regular Mammogram screenings for breast cancer.

I will give you the latest scientific research on what women can do for safe breast cancer screenings.

Women Beware of the American Cancer Society, together with the American College of Radiologists, who both have completely disregarded the carefully considered recommendations of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.

The American Cancer Society and American College of Radiologists insist on pursuing large scale mammography screening programs for breast cancer, including its use in younger women, even though the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and other experts have agreed that mammography screening is likely to cause more cancers than it could possibly detected in younger women.

Women deserve to clearly understand the documented scientific facts that annual mammogram screenings are NOT safe and annual mammogram screenings are the leading CAUSE of breast cancer.

Let us look at the facts regarding Mammograms and their risks of radiation causing breast cancer

Each mammogram women receive is 1 rad of radiation. So over 10 years the risk for women will have increased 20 percent. Radiation-related breast cancers occur at least 10 years after exposure.

Studies of groups of people exposed to ionizing radiation have conclusively found that accumulation of radiation over time can cause breast cancer as has been documented in groups of the past who were exposed to radiation documented in the following four examples:

1) The female survivors of the atomic bombings in Japan during World War II;
2) Women given radiation therapy to treat Hodgkin’s disease and malignant and benign breast disease;
3) Girls treated as infants or children for several non-malignant conditions such as enlarged thymus glands;
4) Young adolescents and women who received numerous diagnostic x-ray examinations to monitor tuberculosis treatments or to monitor scoliosis of the spine.

More is known about the patterns of breast cancer following radiation exposure than of any other cancer.

Breast cancer is more easily caused by radiation than are other kinds of cancer.

There is absolutely no safe dose of X-ray radiation to a women’s breast because a Women’s breast is the most sensitive tissue in the human body.

If your last mammogram didn’t find cancer in your breast, keep getting regular annual mammograms and after ten years you surely will find cancer that was caused by radiation in receiving regular annual mammograms.

Exposing a women’s breasts repeatedly to X-ray radiation is known to cause breast cancer.

Dr. John W. Gofman, an authority on the health effects of X-ray, estimates that 75 percent of breast cancers could be prevented by avoiding or minimizing exposure to the X-rays.

Since the introduction of mammograms in 1965, the incidence of a form of breast cancer called ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) has increased by 328 percent. Mammograms not only cause cancer, mammograms can also spread existing cancer cells by receiving harmful X-ray radiation.

The risk of radiation causing breast cancer is higher among younger women.

A Canadian study found a 52 percent increase in breast cancer death in young women under 35 given annual mammograms.

So how valuable is mammography in discovering cancer while mammograms are known to actually cause cancer?

False Positives

A study of 60,000 women ages 40 to 64 in Sweden who was screened for breast cancer revealed that 726 who were referred to oncologists for treatment, 70% were found to be cancer free. That’s 70 percent of the tumors detected by mammograms detected tumors that weren’t tumors at all.

According to The Lancet publication, of the 5% of mammograms that suggest further testing, up to 93% are false positives. The Lancet report further noted that because the great majority of positive screenings are false positives, these inaccurate mammogram results lead to many unnecessary biopsies and other invasive surgical procedures. In fact, 70% to 80% of all positive mammograms do not, on biopsy, show any presence of cancer.[2]

These "false positives" lead to too many unnecessary and invasive biopsies, meaning thousands of women were emotionally traumatized with unnecessary evasive treatment.

False Negatives

In addition, mammograms showing a high rate of missed tumors, or "false negatives." Dr. Epstein, in his book, The Politics of Cancer, claims that in women ages 40 to 49, one in four instances of cancer is missed at each mammogram.

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) says 40 percent of mammograms miss tumors among women ages 40-49.

National Institutes of Health (NIH) say that mammograms miss 10 percent of malignant tumors in women over 50 and tumors are twice as likely to occur in premenopausal mammograms.

The fact is the incidence of breast cancer is still rising.

The incidence of breast cancer in women over 65 rose nearly 40 percent in the United States. Radiation exposure is responsible for the growing number of breast cancer cases.

Women deserve to know that continued use of annual Mammogram screenings for breast cancer is causing breast cancers.

Even worse, spokespeople for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) admit that mammograms miss 25 percent of cancer tumors in women in their 40s and mammograms miss 10 percent in older women.

Furthermore, the fact is in an Australian study it was found that more than half of the breast cancers in younger women are not detectable by mammograms.[3]

A Canadian study found a 52 percent increase in breast cancer mortality in young women given annual mammograms, a procedure whose stated purpose is to prevent cancer.

Despite facts that breast cancer is caused by radiation exposure to women from mammograms, the American Cancer Society (ACS) has promoted the practice without reservation. Five radiologists have served as American Cancer Society presidents.[4]

Approximately 100 women each day or 41,000 women a year lose their lives to breast cancer.

It’s now time to turn our conversation from the number one cause of breast cancer, which is caused by X-ray radiation by mammograms to understanding why some women get breast cancer and other women do not.

It’s time to fully investigate breast cancer prevention. In video number 2, I will show the smart safe breast cancer screening called a Mineralogram.

(Video #1 End)

Hello, I’m Doctor Calvin Ross and welcome to video number 2 of 3 on Mammograms and breast cancer. We will turn our attention from the fact that X-ray radiation from regular annual Mammogram screenings cause breast cancer to the fact of what is the underlying root cause of why one women is more susceptible to get breast cancer than another and what is the intelligent safe choice for annual breast cancer screenings.

Here is a quick review of all the known facts, characteristics, and scientific studies that document radiation-induced breast cancer?

First, women’s breast tissue is one of the most sensitive tissues to the carcinogenic action of ionizing radiation, especially in young women.

Second, it takes a minimum of about 5 to10 years after exposure before a radiation-induced breast cancer would develop, and usually many more years. In fact, the time between radiation exposure and breast cancer development is longest in young women and shortest for older women; young children do not show a detectable elevation in breast cancer occurrence for some 35 to 40 years after exposure. Radiation-induced breast cancers appear to occur later in life during the same ages when breast cancer rates, in general, begin to increase. It appears that a single exposure of sufficient dose during early life can increase breast cancer risk even 50 years later.

Third, the relationship between radiation dose and breast cancer risk can be described by a straight line which implies that no matter how low the dose, there is some small risk associated with the exposure. If the total radiation dose is split into many smaller doses, the risk of radiation induced breast cancer is nearly the same as if the dose were given all at once.

Fourth, age at exposure is one of the most important determinants of the future risk of developing breast cancer due to radiation later in life. Young girls are at highest risk and women irradiated around the menopausal ages are at low risk. When a young girl is exposed to radiation, she will have menstrual cycles for several decades that might enhance the development of any underlying damage caused by the radiation. There is evidence to suggest that exposure to the immature breast during early development, and around the age of beginning menstruation, carries a higher risk than at other times of a woman’s life.

Twenty-seven peer-reviewed scientific papers and technical reports have now identified radiation as a cause of breast cancer in women. The first such report appeared in 1965, and since then the evidence has mounted at the rate of one new study each year for 30 years.

The evidence X-ray radiation causing breast cancer from mammograms has been presented repeatedly in the JOURNAL OF THE NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE; in the NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE; in LANCET; in the BRITISH MEDICAL JOURNAL; in the BRITISH JOURNAL OF CANCER; in CANCER; and in RADIATION RESEARCH. Evidence has been gathered by studying breast cancer among women in many countries exposed to many different sources of radiation. RADIATION IS A KNOWN CAUSE OF BREAST CANCER IN WOMEN; it is not speculative or uncertain. It is widely accepted.

The sad fact is X-ray radiation causing breast cancer is not widely discussed.

That’s why every woman deserves to see this documentary report as soon as possible. It may save her life!

Dr. Gofman calculates that at least 66% --and perhaps as much as 75% --of today's 182,000 new cases of breast cancer each year have been caused by past medical uses of X-rays, radium therapy, and fluoroscopy. A fluoroscope is an x-ray machine with the beam remaining "on" during the examination. An x-ray is a snap-shot; a fluoroscope is a motion picture, and it delivers considerably more radiation than an X-ray.

Breast cancer information has been derived from direct observation of humans irradiated in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. As John Gofman says, "By any reasonable standard of biomedical proof, this issue has been settled...

" Any exposure to ionizing radiation carries with it some risk to each women and, where a group is concerned, that individual risk translates into a specific rate of cancer occurrence. The only safe X-ray radiation dose is zero.

So why is mammogram screenings used when we know radiation causes breast cancer?

I will not discuss the politics in healing in this report, but there are books[5] to reveal to you the severe problem in the politics in healing.

False Beliefs of the Past

The continual recommendation of annual mamogram screenings for women by the medical profession reminds me of the documented FALSE BELIEFS of our past history.

One false belief of the past was, THE WORLD WAS BELIEVED TO BE FLAT!

If you happened to know the world was not flat , but ROUND you would be scoffed at.

“You must be one of those evil deniers! The science is settled, and there’s no further need for debate.”\

Another false belief of the past was, THE EARTH IS THE CENTER FO THE UNIVERSE!

If you happened to know the world is not the center of the universe, you would be scoffed at.

“Don’t listen to the evil deniers! The science is settled, and there’s no further need for debate.”

Furthermore let’s look at the 100% insanity of Bloodletting as the proper way to cure disease

If you knew bloodletting was not going to cure a disease, then you would be scoffed at.

“You must be one of those evil deniers! The science is settled, and there’s no further need for debate.”

Bloodletting is the withdrawal of often considerable quantities of blood from a patient to cure or prevent illness and disease. It was the most common medical practice performed by doctors from antiquity up to the late 19th century, a time span of almost 2,000 years.[6] Excessive blood loss can lead to shock and death.\

Bloodletting was a medical procedure believed to alleviate the ills of mankind. The medical practice of bloodletting over the past 2,000 years was in the light of the contemporary theory of disease as a curse cast on him by an evil spirit; the bloodletting treatment consisted of driving out the demon that possessed the patient. Bloodletting was supposed to facilitate the release of evil spirits from the body. This was the standard of medicine’s practice for 2,000 years. This has proven to be voodoo. \

The story of bloodletting originated from magic and religious ceremonies. The physician and priest were one and the same since disease was thought to be caused by supernatural causes. Witch doctors and sorcerers were called on to drive out the evil spirits and demons.

The use of leeches for drawing blood from human beings was also used.

Astrology played an important role in the physician's practice. Bloodletting as well as surgery in general was regulated by the signs of the zodiac, and the planets had to be in a proper relationship. A phlebotomy table (1480 A.D.) spelled out the relationship of every part of the body to the signs of the zodiac. Bloodletting was performed at specific times for specific parts of the body.[7]

I’m reminding you of the insanity of the practice of medicine in using blood letting for thousands of years with absolutely no scientific evidence of it curing anything except a superstitious belief of evil sprits.

The bogyman has got you!

Now Women! Let’s get real here. What is the similarity of blood letting and mammograms? They both lead to death.

So, do I have any suggestions for a safe effective screening for breast cancer?

Yes, and I do not recommend annual mammograms screenings for women.

I prescribe safe and effective annual Mineralogram screenings.

The world standard in health screening is the safest, most comprehensive health screening in the world called a Mineralogram or a “soft tissue mineral biopsy” also known as a tissue mineral analysis (TMA) commonly done with hair to discover the exact mineral balance to your biochemistry and exposes the level of toxic heavy metals in your body. The tissue mineral analysis is 100% safe and tells the story if your bodies biochemistry is in mineral balance leading to good health and vitality or the tissue mineral analysis reveals heavy metal toxicity and other mineral imbalances that have been shown to lead to serious health problems, chronic disease and deadly breast cancer.

A Mineralogram is considered the Gold Standard test used around the world for the biological monitoring of trace elements and toxic heavy metals in both humans and animals.

It has been widely used to detect mineral levels developed in the 1960’s by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) headquartered at the Vienna International Centre in Vienna, Austria.

In video number 3 of 3 I will reveal to you this smart high-tech safe annual breast cancer screening you deserve to receive. It is not a mammogram, it is called a Mineralogram. In video 3 of 3 you will lean how you can receive your safe comprehensive Mineralogram, even if you have received X-Ray radiation in the past.

(End of Video 2)

Welcome to video number 3 of 3, on Breast Cancer and Mammograms. I’m Doctor Calvin Ross and in video 1 and 2 I documented mammograms are causing breast cancer and I will reveal to you the smart safe annual breast cancer screening you can receive. It is not a mammogram, It is called a Mineralogram.

This state-of-the-art technology was discovered by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), a team of 2,200 multi-disciplinary professional and support staff from more than 90 countries who come from scientific, technical, and professional disciplines.

This technology is known as inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry, a test that is highly sensitive and extremely acurate.[8] It is the standard approved method used by the United States Environmental Protection Agency since the 1960’s, the world of forensic science, and the test results are admissible evidence in court because of its extreme accuracy.

I prescribe this very useful technology for all my female patients to receive an annual Mineralogram screening to document and discover any abnormal mineral imbalances and any Toxic Heavy Metals that are effecting and compromising your immune system. Heavy metals lower the body’s immune system and discovering heavy metal presence is a strong indicator your immune system is stressed and thereby may cause the spread of breast cancer. Toxic heavy metals lower your immune system and pre-dispose you to the development and spread of deadly Breast Cancer.

Research reveals a gradual accumulation of these toxic heavy metals in breast tumors like Fe (Iron), Ni (Nickel), Cr (Chromium) Zn (Zinc), Hg (Mercury), and Pb (Lead) within the sensitive breast tissues are closely related in lowering your immune system and the spread of deadly breast cancer.

Research reveals excess Fe (Iron) suppresses your immune system, promoting the spread of tumor growth.

Increased Cu (Copper) concentrations accumulate in human lung cancers and in breast tumors, and causes an increase of estrogen that also can increase the growth of deadly breast cancer.

Nickel, Chromium, and Cadmium cause mutation of cancer cells and these toxic heavy metals are carcinogens through their ability to stop our cells ability to repair damaged DNA, and can cause a spread of breast cancer.

Nickel and Iron are also found in prostate cancer.

The toxic heavy metal accumulation in a women’s breast tissue points directly to why some women are more susceptible to breast cancer than other women. It is the level of toxic heavy metals in the breast tissues that affect the immune system and the spread of breast cancer.

These toxic heavy metals are easily tested and if present, can be safely and quickly be removed from your body. You can return to excellent health when toxic heavy metals are removed from your body.

You deserve to stop being afraid of breast cancer and simply become educated on the current sate-of-the-art safe screenings to discover if you have toxic heavy metals in your body that lower your immune system and make you susceptible to breast cancer.

Yes, you can choose to receive safe and effective annual Mineralograms to discover any toxic heavy metals in your body. Mineralograms are the most advanced, safe, and effective breast cancer screening method available to you today.

Mineralograms are performed by several federally certified labs in the United States., but there is only one federally certified lab in the U.S. that exclusively do Mineralograms from hair, which is the lab I have used for years for all my patients.

In addition to tissue mineral analysis, our BodyBesttm Doctors may recommend testing your Hormones, your allergies, your body composition analysis for further natural safe screening tests to discover your mineral balance and your hormone imbalances, and any allergies you may have.

What is your intelligent solution to annual breast screenings?

First, our BodyBesttm Doctors have compiled a special four page questionnaire to assist in discovering the underlying cause of your health problems, including breast cancer.

We have made this health questionnaire available to you free. You can print the questionnaire from the following website listed on the screen [screen -]. If you cannot print the questionnaire, just call [screen - (800) 386-3929] our office and we will mail you a questionnaire.

Second, after printing your health questionnaire from the home page, answer the health questions, then fax [screen - 949-661-7536] or mail the report to our office [Dr. Calvin Ross 31882 Del Obispo Street, Suite 158 San Juan Capistrano California 92675 USA].

Third, once we receive your health questionnaire you will receive a free analysis of your questionnaire including a free phone consultation regarding your current health and our BodyBesttm Doctors now have current health information to be able to prescribe any necessary diagnostic tests, including hormone, allergy and a safe Mineralogram.

Our BodyBesttm Doctors have forty years of health care experience and have assisted thousands of women just like you to return to excellent health all around the world.

This report is to strongly suggest women stop the insanity of doing the same thing over and over again and expecting to get a different result. You must know, continued regular annual mammograms will continue to cause breast cancer and will tragically continue to kill thousands of women every year.

What can YOU do?

Complete our comprehensive FREE questionnaire and receive a personal phone consultation from one of our BodyBesttm Doctors who can prescribe a Mineralogram for you.

The next time your doctor recommends you receive an annual mammogram screening, just ask him when was the last time he had his testicles X-rayed for testicular cancer screening?

Radiation therapy can sterilize a man at any age and the breast tissue is much more sensitive than the cells that make sperm. You can agree to have your mammogram following your doctor receiving his testicular X-ray screening. Until that time you are not interested in radiating your sensitive breast tissue with X-ray radiation that can cause breast cancer.

Please remember, the world was once thought flat. The earth was once perceived to be the center of the universe, and bloodletting was once the standard medical procedure thought to cure all disease for thousands of years. ALL these FALSE beliefs were completely wrong.

The world is round, bloodletting was voodoo, and Mammograms cause breast cancer. Your Mineralogram is the state-of-the-art safe annual screening for breast cancer.

Order yours today. I look forward in receiving your health questionnaire so we can assist you to return to excellent health.

How To Use your Mineralogram as a safe Soft Tissue Biopsy Analysis for Balancing Your Biochemistry in Achieving Excellent Health!

A Mineralogram or Tissue Mineral Analysis (MINERALOGRAM) is your safe health screening to assist you to achieve excellent health. Your comprehensive report, performed by Trace Elements, the only federally licensed clinical laboratory in America that specializes in Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (MINERALOGRAM) will reveal what’s inside of you and what you are made up of, healthy minerals or plagued with toxic heavy metals?

With the doctors analysis your current health will be explained and you will understand what to do for your future health.

Frequently Asked Questions about Mineralograms:

1. How long has Mineralograms available?

The International Atomic Energy Agency developed the technology in 1965.

2. How is the test performed?

Once the lab receives the sample, it is logged in with its own control number. Then the sample is weighed and placed in different test tubes. Acids - like the ones in your stomach -- are added to the sample to digest the hair. This process releases the mineral elements inside the hair matrix.

The mineral elements are analyzed by an induction coupled plasma emission spectrophotometer. Mercury analysis, is done by an atomic absorption spectrophotometer.

The results are combined and transferred to a computer. Trace Elements Lab sends tow lab results to your doctor who analyzes the results, sends you the analysis and sets up a phone consultation with you.

3. Just how accurate is a Mineralogram?

These instruments are state-of-the-art equipment certified by the Federal Government, which is very accurate in parts per BILLION range and lower. The instruments are computer controlled to remove any human.

The lab is inspected and licensed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It must adhere to their strict federal guidelines.

4. What does a Mineralogram show?

Hair is used because it is so easy to collect and is exposed to the blood and lymph and contains all the minerals present in your body. It reflects the reservoirs of these elements.

The hair reveals your biochemistry the runs cell metabolism.

A Mineralogram is the standard test for revealing heavy metal toxicity.

5. Is the MINERALOGRAM a valid nutritional screen?

The test clearly shows individual deficiencies and toxicities. But, even more important, it highlights the interrelationships of the various elements. For example, a person may have an adequate amount of magnesium in their body. But, when calcium is too high, a relative magnesium deficiency exists which can and will create adverse health conditions.

6. How can a MINERALOGRAM determine exact vitamin needs?

Minerals act as enzyme activators and vitamins act as coenzymes. The Mineralogram can evaluate your mineral status, which provides information regarding your vitamin requirements.

7. How do I know what nutritional supplements to take?

Our experience reveals people are often taking exactly the opposite of the supplements they really need. They are actually stressing the minerals out of balance. One can only tell what is going on inside their biochemistry by a Mineralogram. Once the minerals are analyzed, then we can recommend any changes necessary to put your chemistry back in balance for improved health..

8. Is this test covered by insurance?

If your coverage includes wellness, the MINERALOGRAM is typically covered. Insurance companies will pay for a toxic metal screening. They'll probably pay if you think someone poisoned you with arsenic or your child is loaded with lead.

9. How quickly will I see results?

If you have heavy metals you will be prescribed EDTA suppositories that start working in hours. Patients notice changes in days to weeks.

10. How old do you have to be to have a MINERALOGRAM?

From birth to those in the golden years can receive the test. There is no age limit, young or old.

11. Where are the MINERALOGRAM tests done?

The federally licensed lab in America that is approved by the Department of Health and Human Services we use for our patients is Trace Elements in Dallas Texas who does tests for doctors from around the world.

12. Can I get a MINERALOGRAM from Trace Elements myself?

No. This lab deals exclusively with physicians, because it’s not the test, but the analysis of the test and your biochemistry that only a doctor is qualified to analyze. Ordering your own Mineralogram would be like ordering your own MRI. How you going to read it yourself to see the problem?

13. What tissues is used for a Mineralogram?

Any tissue except blood or waste will work. Hair is the easiest and most painless tissue to sample.

14. Why can't you use blood?

Blood is like a snap shot for that exact instant of time. If you have a toxicity, say too much calcium, the blood will deposit the excess calcium elsewhere and will not be revealed as a problem on a blood test. If you have a deficiency, the blood will rob the tissues to maintain its chemistry. Our goal for your Mineralogram is to see a bigger picture over the last several months. It’s like a panoramic view of you mineral balance, nut just a little snap shot.

15. My hair is colored. Or, I just had a perm. When can I have a MINERALOGRAM?

We recommend you use pubic hair. Perming adds magnesium to the hair. Color treatments add iron.

16. How long does it take to get my MINERALOGRAM results?

Approximately two weeks.

17. Are there any immediate results?

Yes. With EDTA chelation results are immediate following treatment. Patients feel a definite surge of energy and feeling of wellness.

20. How often can I have a MINERALOGRAM?

Ninety (90) to one-hundred twenty (120) days. You can have the test three to four times a year. Once your biochemistry is balanced, once every six months to a year recommended until you return to excellent health.

21. What is the cost of the test and how do I get one done?

Your MINERALOGRAM Analysis and Report

Your comprehensive questionnaire documents your current state of health covering metabolic assessment, food sensitivities, hormones, thyroid adrenals, stress, and toxicity. You will list you current health problems in order from one (1) to five (5). You list any medications you are currently taking and for what condition. You list any natural nutritional supplements you are currently taking and for what condition. This questionnaire measures your current state of health.

This Mineralogram comprehensive report charts 35 different trace elements, minerals and toxic metals on and easy to understand graph. It also includes a suggested individualized eating plan to optimize your recovery all based on your current mineral balance and deficiencies. You'll learn the best food choices for your metabolism and what NOT to eat. You will discover the recommended natural nutritional supplements to assist balancing your biochemistry based on the Mineralogram results. (People taking the wrong supplements or too much, will actually get sicker!)

Copper Toxicity Syndrome

Breast Cancer & Mammograms

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), first convened by the U.S. Public Health Service in 1984, and since 1998 sponsored by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), is the leading independent panel of private-sector experts in prevention and primary care. The USPSTF conducts rigorous, impartial assessments of the scientific evidence for the effectiveness of a broad range of clinical preventive services, including screening, counseling, and preventive medications. Its recommendations are considered the "gold standard" for clinical preventive services.

Public Law Section 915 mandates that AHRQ convene the USPSTF to conduct scientific evidence reviews of a broad array of clinical preventive services, develop recommendations for the health care community, and provide ongoing administrative, research, technical, and dissemination support.

The Task Force's pioneering efforts began with the 1989 Guide to Clinical Preventive Services. A second edition of the Guide was published in 1996. The current Guide to Clinical Preventive Services is available on the Web.


The Task Force makes its recommendations on the basis of explicit criteria. Recommendations issued by the USPSTF are intended for use in the primary care setting. The USPSTF recommendation statements present health care providers with information about the evidence behind each recommendation, allowing clinicians to make informed decisions about implementation.

The USPSTF is supported by an Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC). Under contract to AHRQ, the EPC conducts systematic reviews of the evidence on specific topics in clinical prevention that serve as the scientific basis for USPSTF recommendations.

The USPSTF reviews the evidence, estimates the magnitude of benefits and harms for each preventive service, reaches consensus about the net benefit for each preventive service, and issues a recommendation.

The Task Force grades the strength of the evidence from "A" (strongly recommends), "B" (recommends), "C" (no recommendation for or against), "D" (recommends against), or "I" (insufficient evidence to recommend for or against).

*From: Harris RP, Helfand M, Woolf SH, et al. Current methods of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force: a review of the process. Am J Prev Med 2001;20(suppl 3):21-35.

Members of the USPSTF:

The USPSTF comprises primary care clinicians (e.g., internists, pediatricians, family physicians, gynecologists/obstetricians, and nurses). Individual members' interests include: decision modeling and evaluation; effectiveness in clinical preventive medicine; clinical epidemiology; the prevention of high-risk behaviors in adolescents; geriatrics; and the prevention of disability in the elderly.

Current members of the Task Force are listed below. They have recognized expertise in prevention, evidence-based medicine, and primary care.
