    Just saw Wessely's wife tweet about this BMJ article that found no benefits for breast screening.

    (I thought that sort of thing was hurtful and harassing, conspiratorial accusations?.. Although also, obviously true.)

    The BMJ article is currently open access, but they often go behind the paywall after a while.

    No idea where I stand on it, but always good to see an honest discussion, without the pretence that everyone's intentions are good.
