    Breast Cancer: Its Link to Abortion and the Birth Control Pill

    Breast Cancer: Its link to Abortion and
    the Birth Control Pill


    [...]

    Oral contraceptives are composed of a synthetic estrogen⁄progestin combination and put the breast cells of a young woman at risk, because these hormones increase the rate of cell division, a process called mitosis [6, p.375]. In general the higher the mitotic rate of a cell, the higher the risk that it will turn into a cancer cell.

    In regard to abortion, when a woman becomes pregnant she experiences a dramatic increase in her hormone levels of estradiol, progesterone, and hCG. The initial increase in hormone levels induces breast cells to divide and undergo a maturing process called differentiation, which lasts throughout a woman's pregnancy and is completed only after her first term baby is delivered. Hormone levels fall rapidly if she has an induced abortion, leaving her breast cells in a transitional state where they have not completely matured (differentiated) and are vulnerable to carcinogens (ie, factors that cause cancer).

    For the good news;
    It appears tho that you can drop the risk and prepare your child well, and if you have more than five children your risk decreases..

    Long–term breastfeeding:
    In a large study, Newcomb et al [43] noted that premenopausal women (ie, women who have not experienced menopause yet) who breast fed for more than 4 months in their lifetime, had at least a 22% decreased risk of breast cancer, whereas postmenopausal women showed no obvious benefit from a history of breastfeeding [43]. In a study of 329 women, McTiernan et al [44] noted that premenopausal women who breast fed for more than 13 months had a 55% decreased risk, whereas postmenopausal women who did so [in their reproductive years] had a 62% decreased risk. Byers et al [45] also noted a decreased risk of breast cancer in premenopausal women who breastfed, but failed to find it in postmenopausal women. Wang also noted that women who breastfed more than 6 years had a 60% decreased risk.
    I'm sure some of you will find this interesting

    Religion:
    Jewish women seem to have a 2.8–fold increased risk of getting breast cancer, perhaps because of their higher rate of the defective BRCA1 gene and⁄or environmental factors [36].
    (so that takes them to ~ 35% lifetime chance)

    Thankyou CharlesDexterWard for posting this article. My sister was diagnosed with breast cancer about 2 months ago. She is currently undergoing Radiotherapy, and I think will begin Chemotherapy after that.

    It is unusual, in that she is only 27 years old, and there is no history of cancer in the family. I know she had been taking birth control pills for a number of years, so perhaps this was a factor? Also she was working long hours in a stressful job, which also lead to her smoking, not exercising, and eating poorly. Perhaps if she had devoted herself instead to having children and maintaining a family, this would not have happened?
