Obamacare and prostate cancer. The p-pill link. A Limerick.

Can people get cancer from taking the pill?

Both they and their partners most surely will.

Synthetic estrogen

Acts as carcinogen.

Obamacare soon will go in for the kill!

 

Researchers recently studied the link between prostate cancer incidence and mortality and the use of birth control pills. The authors of the study, published in 2011 in the British Medical Journal, hypothesized that birth control pills may lead to environmental estrogen contamination, causing increased rates of prostate illness in men.

The researchers correlated prostate cancer statistics with contraception use and found that oral contraceptive use was significantly associated with prostate cancer incidence and mortality in individual nations worldwide.

Other forms of contraception (IUDs, condoms, or vaginal barriers) were not correlated with prostate cancer incidence or mortality. The scientists concluded: “A significant association between oral contraceptives and prostate cancer has been shown.”

From my days of Chromatography I was made aware that an electron capture detector does not react to natural estrogen, but synthetic estrogen in all its forms do. Natural and synthetic estrogen does not act the same in the body, and unintended consequences are therefore to be expected.

Birth control pills should be avoided as they utilize synthetic hormones and have been shown to increase the risk of breast cancer. This new evidence suggests that they increase the risk of prostate cancer as well. Using a synthetic hormone reminds me of Forrest Gump’s motto: “Stupid is as stupid does.”
