Study: Women on BCP’s have 40% Higher Risk of Getting Brain Cancer

Holy Hormones Journal:

Cancer – the result of the largest uncontrolled medical experiment in history. What people do not realize is that there are not only long terms effects from using synthetic hormones – but the ensuing BCP or condomhormone imbalance is passed in utero to our children. Their endocrine health is dependent on our endocrine health. Too many women stop taking synthetic hormones and get pregnant right away. That is not even common sense. Synthetic hormones and BPA – amongst 286 other heavy metals and toxins found in the umbilical cord.

Birth control pills also raise the risk of cervical cancer – but as WebMD points out…. the risk drops once women stop taking the pill. I beg to differ. Synthetic hormones deplete invaluable micronutrients from the body…. the very micronutrients that are needed to prevent cervical cancer. It is not HPV that is causing this type of ‘gyn’ cancer…. it is putting young girls who are nutritionally deficient on the pill, patch, IUD and implants and injections.

Birth control pills have also been linked to breast cancer. This little piece of information comes right from the National Cancer Institute.

A 1996 analysis of epidemiologic data from more than 50 studies worldwide by the Collaborative Group on Hormonal Factors in Breast Cancer found that women who were current or recent users of birth control pills had a slightly higher risk of developing breast cancer than women who had never used the pill (2).

A 1996 analysis? Is that the best they can do? Se why funding for women’s research is crucial – and so painstakingly absent? Here is another study that I posted on the link between BCP’s and breast cancer.

And now a Danish study is reporting that birth control pills are linked to brain cancer. Well, I have called a spade a spade before and I will call it again: birth control pills are steroids.

So what is a woman to do? Well, those who know and follow me (and I thank you) will understand when i say do not panic and fall for the cancer scares. What we need to be concerned about is something we do have control over and that is our nutritional status. You just do not get cancer. It develops over time – as you are depleting more and more nutrients from stress, lack of nutritional content in our foods, pregnancies etc. (Oh yeah, add in all biologic medicines including psychotropics to that list).  Cancer is the result of a metabolic imbalance. The endocrine system has to be in balance and functioning for the overall health of our bodies.

Birth control pills deplete vital nutrients from the body – this is what the focus should be.

I have also developed a Birth Control Comparison and Risk of Side Effect Chart for women.

New Study Suggests Link Between Birth Control & Cancer

We’ve seen convoluted research linking birth control to a variety of cancers before. But, a new study is now making the rounds — it suggests that hormonal birth control may increase the risk for developing brain cancer in particular.

The study, published recently in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, looked at data for 317 women with brain cancer (glioma) and 2,126 without collected from Danish health and administrative registries. The women were between 15-49 years old and had a similar number of years of education. The researchers looked at the women’s prescription data and categorized them based on how long they had been using hormonal birth control (less than a year, 1-5 years, or over five years) and the type of birth control they were using (progestogen-only or progestogen and estrogen).

The results showed that women who had ever used the pill had a 40% higher risk  for developing brain cancer than those who had never used it, and the risk increased the longer women were on that form of birth control. The risk also went up if the birth control was progestogen-only. The research also showed a heightened risk in those using hormonal intrauterine devices (IUDs), but the risk was lower than for those on the pill.
