Jolie Lobs Off Her Breasts – Is the Birth Control Pill to Blame?

Holy Hormones Journal: “Estrogen is to cancer as fertilizer is to wheat.” 1970 Senate testimony on the birth control pill – given by a ‘male’ medical expert. What else needs to be said? Except women have been force fed synthetic hormones in the form of HRT and birth control for another 40 some odd years.  These are STEROIDS affecting our neuro-endocrine-immune systems.  Birth control is undoubtedly the largest uncontrolled medical experiment in medical history.

Women – and our offspring – and their offspring and…. how many more generations will bear the brunt of the damage? Again.

BRCA1 Gene: Is the morning after pill also a cancer shadow for women?

teen_s640x427WASHINGTON, May 15, 2013 ― Angelina Jolie, in a New York Times op-ed, revealed that she has the mutated BRCA1 (pronounced brak-uh) gene, a condition that gave her an 87 percent chance of developing breast cancer. Jolie, whose mother died from the disease, decided to undergo a preventative double mastectomy in February: “I can tell my children that they don’t need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer.”She closed her piece with this statement: “I choose not to keep my story private because there are many women who do not know that they might be living under the shadow of cancer.”Although Jolie was referring to the estimated five percent of women who also carry the defective BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene, 12 million women in America live under the shadow of cancer for a reason that neither media nor the medical community wants to talk about — the proven link between breast cancer and contraceptive pills.

Florence Williams at Slate reported in 2010, “Last summer, in a study of more than 50,000 African American women, Boston University epidemiologist Lynn Rosenberg found a 65 percent increase in a particularly aggressive form of breast cancer among those who had ever taken the birth control pill. The risk doubles for those who had used the contraceptive within the past five years and had taken it for longer than 10 years.”

LifeSiteNews reports that Dr. Angela Lanfranchi, a breast surgical oncologist and cofounder of the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute, calls the pill a “Molotov cocktail” for breast cancer. She points to several statistics, which she writes include “a 2006 Mayo Clinic meta-analysis that concluded that breast cancer risk rises 50 percent for women taking oral contraceptives four or more years before a full-term pregnancy. In 2009, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center found that women starting the pill before 18 nearly quadruple their risk of triple negative breast cancer. Even more shocking, Swedish oncologist Hakan Olsson concluded that pill use before the age of 20 increases a young woman’s breast cancer risk by more than 1000 percent.”
