Disinformation threatening human lives: „Mammograms are destroying women’s health“

EN Version

The original false information about mammograms harming women’s health first appeared in Romanian media in 2016. According to the World Health Organisation, this particular diagnosis accounts for 16% of the total number of new cancer diagnoses each year. The aforementioned narrative is very often promoted alongside claims that “Diseases disappear on their own” or “Medical procedures are an attack on the sanctity of the human body and potentiate diseases even more as a result”.
