New Study Reinforces Link Between Birth Control & Breast Cancer Risk
By Meera Senthilingam, CNN (CNN) — Birth control can increase a woman’s risk of breast cancer by up to 38%, depending on how long she has taken it, a new study finds. The risk was associated with all forms of hormonal contraception — such as the pill, injections or IUDs — when compared with women who have never used them. Researchers from the University of Copenhagen analyzed data from 1.8 million women under the age of 50 in Denmark. They followed the women for nearly 11 years, on average. The level of breast cancer risk increased the longer a woman had been taking hormonal contraceptives, with the...

Why Hormone Replacement Therapy May Be Safer Than You Think
The pendulum has swung from one extreme to the other when it comes to hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to treat symptoms of menopause. At first, the replacement hormones—mostly a combination of estrogen and progestin to replace what the body stops making after menopause—were seen as a panacea. Doctors thought they could not only relieve hot flashes and night sweats, but also prevent chronic aging diseases like heart problems and weakening bones. But studies then found that the supplement hormones could lead to a higher risk of breast cancer—and that they didn’t protect the heart after all. In the l...
