Thank Kylie Minogue For Your Mammogram!
Kylie Minogue, who just turned the big 4-0 last week, has made women want to wear more spandex, sing at the top of their lungs, and dance like there’s no tomorrow. She’s beaten breast cancer and has also proved that Billboard hits aren’t the only charts she’s been affecting. Since openly talking about her battle with breast cancer in 2005, the Australian medical establishment is crediting her with a 33% spike in mammograms for women between the ages of 25 and 44. (If only gay men could get their moobs screened, you know the numbers would have skyrocketed!) [CBC News]
