Group 1 Carcinogens and Cancer

Yes, the dreaded C-Word, I mean the other C-Word, not the one they have been talking about in the news with regards to Bill Maher.

Remember our little thought experiment from the other day? The common story of a gal taking the Pill from 18 to 30 years of age. Well as it turns out, according to a Mayo Clinic report in 2006:
women who use hormonal contraceptives for a minimum of four years before having their first full-term pregnancy have a 52% higher risk of developing breast cancer
Hmmm... In our story the gal was on the Pill for 12 years. Know of any loved ones in this situation.

You mean you never heard about this Mayo Clinic report on the nightly news?

Read more about it here. Or here.
