AGING CONDITIONS: CANCER

Cancer in Women

 

Introduction

WHO [World Health Organisation] recently classed combined oestrogen / progesterone oral contraceptives as Group 1 carginagenics.

100 million women world wide use this drug. Dr Sam Epstein, world leader in cancer prevention claims the pill is the largest drug trial ever carried out, however, the pill has been the most researched drug ever.

Claims are made that the 'pill' has both beneficial and adverse affects:

  • Increases breast, cervical and liver cancer
  • Decreases ovarian and endometrial cancer

 

Claims

Dr Charlotte Paul of Otago University claims that of women in their 20's using the pill over the next 10 years, 17 will get breast cancer, compared to 16 of those not using it. 10 years after stopping, there is no increase in risk. Its fine to take it at this age.

International agency on research in cancer previously said the pill caused rare liver cancer, but now added breast and cervical cancer. Cervical cancer screening is a strong preventative measure.

Other risks of the pill are more important: venous thrombosis leading to higher risk of heart attack or stroke.

 

Longer Duration of Use

Women in their 40s, particularly those who are smokers have a higher underlying risk of cancer, heart attacks and strokes

 

Overall Risk

Overall, the Risk:Benefit analysis shows that the risks do not outweigh the benefits.
