The Affordable Care Act, (aka, Obamacare), Is Credited With An Increase In Detection Of Cervical Cancer.

According to the New York Times, a recent study indicates that the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is effecting, significantly, the diagnosis of cervical cancer, in its’ early-stages, in women aged twenty-six and younger.  Using a hospital registry that contains seventy percent of the United States cases of cervical cancer, American Cancer Society researchers cross-referenced the diagnoses of females with cervical cancer before the 2010 introduction of the Affordable Care Act and after, and found an increase in early detection of the disease in women enrolled in the Affordable Care Act.

Researchers admit that even though there is little proof of a direct connection, that due to the large database of information available and the increase in the diagnosis of the disease, the conclusion that the Affordable Care Act is effecting cancer outcomes is a remarkable finding.
