USA – One frequently cited reason that women don’t get mammograms? They are too busy. There are, of course, other reasons (pain, fear, lack of insurance) but time was a recurrent theme in a recent Journal of Women’s Health article.

It can be scary. It can be costly. It can be painful, all of those things are true. But typically, they don’t take any longer than the average lunch hour. Some women find that the task is far easier if they make a lunch date with friends and go as a group – the support is a great trend and encourages others to try the same idea.

We find ourselves so willing to take a few extra minutes to run and grab that cup of coffee in the morning, or go squeeze in time for reality TV at night. Why not do something that could be a lifesaver for you or your friend?
