I don't get it either! Worried about the hormones in meat, but totally ok with synthetic hormonal contraceptives that are verified carcinogens??? Can't wrap my head around it.

But then, if tobacco and combined oral contraceptives get the same carcinogenic ranking from the World Health Organization - why do cigarette packs require health advisory warnings, but pill packs don't??? If smokers have to face images of rotting lungs every time they purchase cigs, women should see pictures of a scarred chest after double mastectomy on their pill packs!

I guess the reality of these things take time to catch on. I mean, the cigarette/lung cancer connection took decades for the public to accept.
