Statistics and Medical Screening, Good? or Bad?

 A new (for me) blog, Understanding Uncertainty, has a really nice approach to the  question of medical screening. 

"You might think that it's surely better to know whether someone has a disease than not to know, and if some sort of screening or check can give this information, well, why not just do it?"  Turns out there could be  several good reasons.  Read and enjoy.
