I want to point out that most studies of radiation show harm after about 20 years out.  The average here was eleven years.

Secondly as a Patient Advocate I am a strong supporter of healthy lifestyles - if these women were encourage to ADD to their regimens - more fruits and vegetables daily, a walk or other physical activity daily, a stress-relaxation program and perhaps even a detox program along with some dietary supplements, they might show benefit as OTHERS HAVE DONE.

When the only offered options are radiation, and it is studied short-term, one finds the short-term benefits without seeing the harms.
