Women who had an abortion are 626% more likely to have breast cancer: Indian study

LifeSiteNews2You haven’t heard about this study? That’s because it’s politically incorrect science — so the liberal media ignores it. The connection between abortion and breast cancer has been known for a long time, and the stats revealed here are devastating:

Women who have had an abortion are 626 times more likely to develop breast cancer than women who have no such history, a new study in India has found.

A report published in the current issue of the Indian Journal of Cancer suggests that abortion makes the breast’s muscle tissue (epithelium) more likely to act as a cancer-producing agent. “It has been suggested that abortions leave the breast epithelium in a proliferative state with an increased susceptibility to carcinogenesis,” it says.

Perhaps more unnerving, that was not the greatest cancer risk facing women.

Women who consume oral contraceptive pills have a 9.5 times higher rate of breast cancer than women who do not use the drugs, researchers said.

“We found long-term use of oral contraceptive pills (OCP) higher among those suffering from breast cancer compared to healthy individuals,” said lead researcher Dr. Umesh Kapil of the department of gastroenterology and human nutrition at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi.

In the report, Dr. Kapil explained that cancer is a hormonally mediated disease and that breast cancer is caused by repeated exposure of breast cells to circulating ovarian hormones.

He said long-term use of OCPs, which contain estrogen and progesterone, may be increasing the risk of breast cancer by causing a hormonal imbalance. His research suggests a strong relationship between use of oral contraceptive pills and the disease.

The study also looked into the association of other reproductive factors that affect the prevalence of breast cancer, and found that early onset of menstruation, higher age at marriage, higher age at first and last child birth, lower duration of breastfeeding, higher number of abortions, history of oral contraceptive pill use, and a family history of breast cancer are all associated with a significant increase in breast cancer occurrence.
