Here, independent French Medical Doctors, who met through Formindep (French Organization for Independent Medical Training) and a Doctor in Toxicology, have created this site to inform you of the most recent and relevant data on breast cancer mass screening that women have the right to know, but are deprived of information during the "Pink October" campaign in France.
Official inciting messages, but perhaps even more the unofficial ones, from organizations with links of interest totally lacking in objectivity and transparency, as well as the commercial campaigns around “Pink October”, continue to promote the benefits of mass breast cancer screening in France, although no relying on reliable and relevant data, and still let believe that screening saves lives, while minimizing the risks associated with this mass screening.
Our goal is to re-inform women concerned by screening in order to help them to make their choice.
By decoding and popularizing the most recent research findings published in the most important international medical journals, analyzing the controversy and providing a social and feminine analysis.
By questioning French health authorities and the "pink-tinted" campaigns about their responsibility.
By providing independent information resources (brochures, photos, texts, graphics, diagrams, etc.) to women and to interested physicians.
Furthermore, by providing education.
