A much more interesting part of this article about the entrepreneurial Bittner is a side report of how the government came after him in 2003 for proferring MRI of the breast as a cancer screening tool:
... he operated a chain of radiology-imaging shops in California and other states. He offered magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, that he claimed was better than mammography for detecting breast cancer. In 2003, the California board claimed this was false advertising in a civil suit it filed against him and the company he founded, HealthScan America Inc. The shops closed at about the same time. In 2004, a California state court ruled against the business
So why did the government go after him? I know why. But the truth is too shocking, aparently, for you lay people.
So shocking that when I wrote a book about this very subject, in 2006, I could not get it published. No one wants to hear it. No one wants to know. I was told that...well...maybe I shouldn't say.
I will, though.
Stay tuned; I'll get around to it, I promise.
