Nudists Remind Us it’s National Mammography Day

In what could have been a wildly shareable piece of social content, the American Association for Nude Recreation mentioned in passing on their Facebook page to the tune of just 5 Likes at presstime: “Today is National Mammography Day.”

Now that we have your attention, here’s something of note from FactCheck.org:

Q: Does the Affordable Care Act restrict my ability to get a mammogram?

A: No. In fact, the law requires insurers to cover mammography, with no cost-sharing, every one to two years for women starting at age 40. Medicare fully pays for mammograms once every 12 months with no upper age limit.

Read through the entire post for more information on the critical need for regular mammograms, including links to resources, and misinformation to avoid on the subject.

Thank you nudists for propelling this message. For the record, the AANP, established in 1931, provides advocacy, public education and improved conditions for letting it all hang out in North America. They boast 40,000 members (and 7,349 fans on Facebook) who enjoy the “relaxed, all-natural environment” offered at 260 clubs coast-to-coast.
