Pill = Breast Cancer; Vasectomy = Prostate Cancer

The latest study shows that certain birth control pills are linked to an increased risk of breast cancer, and a separate study shows an increased risk of aggressive prostate cancer in men who have had a vasectomy.

The sexual revolution (rebellion against God's design) DOES have consequences.

-- From "Seattle scientists say some birth control pills can increase breast cancer risk" by Atia Musazay, Contributing Writer, Puget Sound Business Journal 8/1/14

A new study out of Seattle suggests that the birth control pill could be linked to an increased risk for breast cancer. Scientists from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and their colleagues have found evidence that women who recently used birth control containing high-dose estrogen showed an increased risk for breast cancer.

The breast cancer data, published today in Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, concludes that recent oral contraceptive use increased breast cancer risk by 50 percent, compared with never or former use. The results suggested that this risk may vary by the level of estrogen in the pill and other pill formulations. Women who took low-dose estrogen birth control within the past year were not found to be at a higher breast cancer risk.

From "Vasectomy linked to aggressive prostate cancer" by Robert Preidt, HealthDay/CBS News 7/11/14

For the study, Harvard researchers analyzed data from more than 49,400 American men who were followed for 24 years, starting in 1986. During that time, 6,023 cases of prostate cancer were diagnosed among the men, including 811 fatal cases.

The 25 percent of the men in the study who'd had a vasectomy had a 10 percent increased risk of developing prostate cancer, according to the study published online July 7 in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.

Vasectomy was not linked with an increased risk of low-grade prostate cancer. But it was associated with a 20 percent higher risk of advanced prostate cancer and a 19 percent greater risk of fatal prostate cancer, respectively, the study authors said.

Even among men who had regular prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening tests for prostate cancer, those who had a vasectomy were 56 percent more likely to develop fatal prostate cancer. This link was strongest among men who had a vasectomy at a younger age.

From "Recent use of some oral contraceptives increases breast cancer risk" by Honor Whiteman, Medical News Today 8/1/14

Numerous studies have suggested that birth control pills increase the risk of breast cancer. Now, a new study suggests that this increased risk may only apply to recent users and is dependent on the formulation of the pill.

The research team, including Elisabeth F. Beaber of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, WA, recently published their findings in the journal Cancer Research.

In this latest study, the team set out to see whether increased breast cancer risk could be attributed to certain types of man-made female hormones.

"Oral contraceptive formulations have changed over time in the US, and contemporary formulations have received relatively less scrutiny with respect to breast cancer risk," Beaber told us.

From "Some birth control pills linked to higher breast cancer risk in study" by Agata Blaszczak-Boxe, CBS News 8/1/14

In the study, the researchers concluded that the potential increase in the risk for breast cancer varied, depending on the types of birth control pills that the women used. The use of high-dose estrogen pills was related to a 2.7-fold increase in breast cancer risk, and the use of moderate-dose estrogen was linked to a 1.6-fold increase. Pills containing ethynodiol diacetate were related to a 2.6-fold higher risk. Triphasic combination pills containing an average of 0.75 milligrams of norethindrone increased the risk 3.1-fold.

"Our results suggest that use of contemporary oral contraceptives [birth control pills] in the past year is associated with an increased breast cancer risk relative to never or former oral contraceptive use, and that this risk may vary by oral contraceptive formulation," study author Elisabeth F. Beaber, a staff scientist in the Public Health Sciences Division of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington, said in a statement.

In the study, researchers examined health records and oral contraceptive use in 1,102 women ages 20 to 49 years diagnosed with breast cancer and 21,952 women without breast cancer in the same age group. . . .

From "Vasectomy Linked to Higher Risk for Lethal Prostate Cancer" by Roxanne Nelson, Medscape Medical News 7/11/14

Time since vasectomy and age at vasectomy had no effect on the risk for prostate cancer. "The cancers that were observed were also considered more clinically significant, such as those that are high grade or lethal," [researcher] noted.

. . . the researchers attempted to account for possible biologic mechanisms underlying the association between vasectomy and lethal prostate cancer. They looked at differences in sex hormone levels, sexually transmitted infections, and cancer treatment.

Although the researchers looked for mechanistic relation, they could not find one.

Vasectomy is a common form of contraception; the prevalence is about 15% in the United States.
