    Australia and New Zealand both recommend routine mammograms starting at 50, not 40. Everything that I have read in the last week seems to indicate that screening for women 40-49 with no known risk factors is at best a wash and is probably slightly counterproductive on balance.

    Plus, PSA screening is a horrible example. At least in the USA it is currently clearly counterproductive.
