Skip to comments.Study in India: oral contraceptives dramatically increase risk of breast cancer (by 950%)
Posted on 01/03/2014 3:57:17 AM PST by NYer
From The Times of India:
Women who take oral contraceptives regularly are at a higher risk of developing breast cancer compared to others, shows a study by AIIMS doctors. Breast cancer risk was found to be 9.5 times more in women with a history of consuming such pills. Early menstruation cycle, late marriage and lower duration of breastfeeding were the other major factors responsible for the disease amongIndians, according to the study published in the latest issue of the Indian Journal of Cancer.
The study was conducted on 640 women, of which 320 were breast cancer patients.
“We found long-term use of oral contraceptive pills (OCP) higher among those suffering from breast cancer-11.9%-compared to healthy individuals-1.2%,” said Dr Umesh Kapil, a professor at the public health nutrition unit, AIIMS. He said breast cancer is caused by repeated exposure of breast cells to circulating ovarian hormones, and long-term use of OCPs, which contain estrogen and progesterone, may be increasing this risk by causing hormonal imbalance.
The study mostly had women who used OCPs for birth control. Emergency contraceptives, popularly called morning-after pills, were not included.
Dr Ajeet Singh Bhadoria, a public health specialist and co-author of the study, said that while the use of OCPs for birth control is on the decline, there has been a spike in the use of morning-after pills.
“Morning-after pills contain a higher dose of hormones and are meant for emergency. However, many young women use them regularly to prevent pregnancy in case of unprotected sex. Awareness about the side-effects of long-term use is a must,” he said.
Read it all.
This is really not news. You will never hear much about it because of big pharma.
It is probably a common knowledge outside US for a long time.
All the more reason to post such articles.
Killing unborn children also increases risk to breast cancer.
I doubt if the sexist & racist bigots at Planned Parenthood provide that information to their “clients”.
“Big Pharma” is just the tool of Big Death.
The REAL war against women.
They are in the same class of carcinogens as cigarettes
I know that because I make it my business to know and NOT because even Fox News tells us, Fox News does NOT tell us that
How males can allow their wives to take these chemicals or how they can have physical relationships with women/girls without commitment and allow them to do this to their bodies is beyond my comprehension
And how doctors can allow this to continue is criminal beyond the extent of tobacco companies because they know.
That doesn’t even mention the killing of embryos who, if the angel Gabriel was right, and the Bible says he is, it is a person-with a soul
When all this ravaging of women, babies and the family system stops history will look back on this group of selfish greedy unwise materialistic atheists as worse than barbaric And males will NOT fare well
They think they’re immune. They are very unwise
And their mothers are not guiding them well
Failure to warn patients, IMHO, makes them complicit. The problem is that there are too many players involved in this deceit, be it in the pharmaceutical, medical and government worlds. Contraceptives have become so entrenched in global society that to formally identify this link might well result in panic and riots. Ditto for the fallacy of global warming.
Contraceptives have been rejected by the Catholic Church from the word ‘go’
All of the negative consequences have been studied and reported by church news outlets
It is widely known there that the pill is a carcinogen as is abortion Fooling around, but like FOOLS, with hormones is a fool’s area of activity
History will put this era way beyond the foolishness and inhumanity than slavery. It IS slavery and murder
Doctors will not fare well The pharmaceutical co’s, now desperately lobbying for amnesty and its cheap labor are just starting to feel the weight and they will NOT go quietly. But they will go
Despite this knowledge and preaching, catholics applied "free will". The Catholic Church has been ridiculed and criticized for its unrelenting teaching on this topic, both from without and within. The Catholic Church has also preached against IVF. Wait until the bombshells fall when people wise up to the increase risk of cancer from that procedure, both for the mother and child.
I think they’ll stay in denial - drug induced or not. Hormones in the environment or bad mothering and spoiling from females porn exposure and addiction, denial of consequences of extramarital sex (and that definitely includes marital but cotracepted sex) and bad schools have made males in this country unmanly. If that ever gets corrected, it’ll be a while, but history will not be kind to this mess The Church will be unglazed, perhaps strengthened by it. But it has not and will not waver, as much as the mouthy pope gives them hope, the church will not waver on this
There’s so much evidence of other bad consequences. To throw another out there, married couples who do not contracept have a single digit divorce rate
Watch the flames from the deniers respond to that statement. It’s like throwing salt on a wound
