Mayo Clinic: Birth Control Pill Causes Cancer
edit_button

The pro-life movement has been saying this for years and now Mayo Clinic agrees.

The journal of the Mayo Clinic has published a key article in its October 2006 issue entitled “Oral Contraceptive Use as a Risk Factor for Pre-menopausal Breast Cancer: A Meta-analysis”.

Basically, their major findings were that oral contraceptives are, beyond any doubt, linked with a measurable and statistically significant increase in pre-menopausal breast cancer.

Basically means that the contraceptive pill can make you have breast cancer before about age 50yrs.

As it stands now 1 in 9 women will get breast cancer...this probably means that stat will go up.

Thanks for sharing...I'll keep it tucked in the back of my mind for my girls.

Tubal Ligation Reversal said...

Every woman has the right to dream of a child. Tubal reversal allows a woman's ability to conceive naturally without any harm. Although tubal ligation is considered a permanent method of contraception, but then you think you're doing something wrong and you should not have a tubal ligation. But do not worry, about 90% of cases, the procedure can be reversed.
