I read TFA.
I especially liked the tear-jerker about the poor kid who started getting nosebleeds.
Mind you, I'm not really sure why the author thinks that the nosebleeds are in any way related to thyroid cancer (the girl in question was not mentioned as one of the 137).
I was also amused by the PhD who said "this isn't screening, it's real!". How the hell does he know? Did he actually go over there and examine patients or anything? And if he did, why wasn't that mentioned in TFA? Seems more likely he had a good sound-bite, so they ran with it in spite of him knowing nothing specific about the subject.
