Life spans & financial risk, digital mammography, medical decision-making, Alzheimer’s, and good rules of thumb for medical consumers

Living long can be a burden.  62% of seniors say it’s their biggest financial risk.

Digital mammography isn’t more effective than other tests.  A few study shows that digital images are no better than traditional film images at detecting breast cancer.

Making good medical decisions.  Two doctors have written a book to help.  (This entire interview is really interesting.  I recommend giving it a read.)

Top 10 sites for Alzheimer’s disease information.  Excellent list! Bonus link: caring for people with Alzheimer’s disease.

Rules of thumb for medical consumers. My favorite: prices don’t reflect effectiveness.
