Breast Cancer Risk Factors
This study follows on earlier studies here and here, both from 2010, which found amoong other serious risk factors, these: Induced or multiple abortions. And these studies follow on earlier studies, here (2009) and here (2003,) which found oral contraception use was a risk factor for a subset of breast cancer (triple negative) and oral contraception was a serious risk factor in young women, respectively.
Whic brings my mind back to the Komen/Planned Parenthood non-scandal. If the raison d'être for Planned Parenthood is a serious risk factor, in two different ways, for breast cancer, why wouldn't Susan G. Komen pull its funding?
Which of the two is playing politics with women's health and lives?
