Despite its clean environment and health-concious residents, California’s Marin County has been called the breast-cancer capital of the world. But is the seemingly high incidence of the disease actually the result of high rates of screening, and tests that often yield false positives? And did some health officials allow the dubious reputation to continue, to keep research dollars flowing? Independent journalist Peter Byrne shares the conclusions of his years-long investigation, and its implications about the workings of the health-care system. Peter Byrne’s newspaper series, “Busted: Breast Cancer, Money, and the Media” can be read at www.ptreyeslight.com. Project Censored co-host Peter Phillips returns next week.

Broadcast from Berkeley–Hard hitting News and Public Affairs with hosts Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips of Project Censored. Producer: Anthony Fest. Engineer: Erica Bridgeman. The mission of Project Censored is to teach students and the public about the role of a free press in a free society and to tell the News that Didn’t Make the News and Why. This show was broadcast Live on KPFA last Friday.
