It's not worth the paper it's printed on.
Brendan A. MacWade
It is thorough, convincing, and provides all the necessary citations, so anyone may confirm the results of the studies mentioned.

In an age that seems to value informed consent, one has to wonder why it has taken the medical community - and the media - so long to publicly recognize the increased risk of breast cancer by women who have abortions.
The first link in the chain was discovered as early as 1957, when a study found that women who had abortions doubled their risk of developing breast cancer. By 1970, the medical community had recognized the fact that pregnancy helped lower the risk of breast cancer. A World Health Organization study of women from seven different countries, released at that time, found that women who carried pregnancies to term had lower risks of contracting the disease.
Joel Brind, Ph.D., professor of biology and endocrinology and founder of the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute, has led research on the abortion-breast cancer link. He has described abortion as the single most avoidable risk factor in breast cancer prevention. Not surprisingly, his early attempts to draw attention to the link were ignored. It was not until 1994, when the medical journals Lancet and the Journal of the National Cancer Institute published data confirming his research, that those outside the medical community took notice.
The Breast Cancer Prevention Institute has gathered the following data:
* 13 of 14 studies since 1957 show more breast cancer among American women who chose abortion (27 of 33 studies worldwide).
* The only study on American women that relied entirely on medical abortion records reported a 90 percent increased risk of breast cancer among women who had chosen abortion.
* Planned Parenthood's abortion experts admit that young women who terminate their first pregnancy are more likely to develop breast cancer than those who carry their first pregnancy to term.

I was searching for books about the link between the birth control pill and breast cancer when I came across this one. I have not read the book, but I plan to.

I am a breast cancer survivor. I was diagnosed at age 34, after the birth of my son. I do not fall into any risk category. I did, however, take the pill for over ten years. Every doctor that I saw during my diagnosis & treatment asked me if I had taken the pill, and for how long. I truly believe that my cancer, which was hormone positive, was a direct result of taking the pill for so long.

This reviewer, that I am citing, mentioned that the American Cancer Society was a better reference for information on the causes of breast cancer. I checked their website. The American Cancer Society says that there is, in fact, a link between breast cancer and the pill. And that there can be as much as a 60% increase in getting breast cancer if you have taken/are taking the pill.

Check it out. It is important to be informed.

As a pro choice woman and author of the newly released ebook, "Birth Control Drugs: Learn the Terrible Truth," volume 1 in the "Busting Breast Cancer:7 Simple Steps Ebook series," I believe that we all owe a huge debt of gratitude to Dr Chris Khalenborn. Putting aside the good doctor's personal belief that life begins at conception, Khalenborn's 2006 research project, published by the highly respected medical journal, "Mayo Clinic Proceedings," and included here in book form, was the first and only study to pool together a group of earlier international studies that looked at women CURRENTLY USING birth control drugs manufactured after 1980... the lower estrogen contraceptives.

Using objective ,transparent, and a statistically-sound protocol, Khalenborn's study found that women, no matter what their age, while using these drugs, had a much higher risk of developing invasive breast cancer, if they had never had a child. He also found that all women, over 40, currently using birth control drugs had a significantly higher risk of developing invasive breast cancer, while on these drugs, than younger women currently using these drugs. His study was the first major piece of research to tell all women.... "It is important to look at alternatives to birth control drugs, if you want to minimize your risk of developing invasive breast cancer during your child-bearing years.

My recent short, but hard hitting e-volume, retailing for $3.99, picks up the birth control drug research, where Khalenborn left off, as I describe more recent studies linking CURRENT birth control drug use with increased rates of invasive breast cancer.

Quite simply, this book is a must read for any woman using the birth control pill. It is thorough, convincing, and provides all the necessary citations, so anyone may confirm the results of the studies mentioned. 19 out of 21 studies conducted since 1980 have linked the birth control pill to breast cancer. It's time for women to hear the facts!

There is confusion about this issue because three different phenomena tend to get mixed together when they should be considered independently. These are: 1. Having a baby lowers the risk of breast cancer, especially if you have it early in your reproductive life (that's what they teach in med school), and 2. Using hormonal contraception increases slightly the risk of breast cancer but lowers the risk of endometrial cancer, cervical cancer, and ovarian cancer (all the authorities agree with that too), but 3. Abortion by itself does NOT increase the risk of breast cancer.

In other words, a woman who has ten abortions and one baby is better off, breast-cancer-wise, than a woman who has no abortions and no babies. The baby, not the abortions, makes the difference.

Some right-to-lifers like to point out that some studies report a link between abortion and subsequent breast cancer. But there are also numerous studies which report that having an abortion LOWERS the risk of breast cancer. These include, but are not limited to, the following:

1. Beral V, Bull D, Doll R, Peto R, Reeves G (2004). "Breast cancer and abortion: collaborative reanalysis of data from 53 epidemiological studies, including 83?000 women with breast cancer from 16 countries". Lancet 363 (9414): 1007-16. doi:10.1016/S0140-6736(04)15835-2. PMID 15051280. This study reported an odds ratio of 0.93, which means that having an abortion was associated with a seven per cent REDUCTION in the risk of breast cancer.

2. Brewster DH, Stockton DL, Dobbie R, Bull D, Beral V (2005). "Risk of breast cancer after miscarriage or induced abortion: a Scottish record linkage case-control study". Journal of epidemiology and community health 59 (4): 283-7. doi:10.1136/jech.2004.026393. PMC 1733063.
