Yet, there is an absence of agreed-upon recommendations for screening and treatment despite a range of scientific research on this form of cancer (Kournay and Fernández Pinto 2018).

(Where are we at?) 2.Leo Marx identified three different mindsets about progress—an enlightenment with a social/political focus, a technocratic form that emphasizes technology as progress, and a later technocratic form which sees scientific and technological innovation as ends in themselves, and the rest will take care of itself. Explain each standpoint for your reader. 3.Using Leo Marx’s progress frameworks, discuss which one best explains the state of breast cancer screening technology and policy.
