Birth control pills found to cause cancer!
I just heard about this and thought it was important enough to drop in and spread the word! Please read the following article. This isn't just a rumor, it's been found to be factually true by the WHO and the National Institute of Cancer!

If you're using birth control pills (or thinking about using them), better rethink your options!!!

Here's the link to the article: WHO Declares Oral Contraceptives Highly Carcinogenic | Dr. Kathleen T. Ruddy's Breast Cancer Blog

Here are some quotes from the article:

"In 2003 the National Cancer Institute (NCI) published a paper in which they stated that there was "a significantly increased risk of breast cancer" in women who used oral contraceptives."

"Women who use oral contraceptives before their first full-term delivery increase their risk of breast cancer by 44%."

"In part, the dramatic rise in the incidence of breast cancer in developed countries over the past forty years may be related to the widespread use of oral contraceptives following their introduction in the 1960ís."

I wasn't a fan of birth control pills to begin with, but this just sealed the deal. No way they should be used by anyone with these kinds of findings!
