Cards against unnecessary screening procedures

Cancer cell photos on card backs by  Dr. Chris Bakal, Institute for Cancer Research, London

Thanks to Dr. Alan Nazerian, who’s a radiologist in Chicago, for his help with understanding the cancer screening process and the incredibly detailed information he provided. The usual disclaimer applies, which is that I alone am responsible for errors and oversimplifications.

Thanks to my colleague, designer Tim Ferguson Sauder — I went to show him what I made and to ask how best to photograph it, and he volunteered to take the photos posted here.
