I appreciate knowing my ABCs. Hooked on phonics, that’s me! However, this is not a post about reading.
One of the most provocative things you can mention in the realm of physical side effects after abortion is that there might be a link to breast cancer. [Ed note: Hence why this is not a post about reading, but rather ABC for Abortion Breast Cancer link.] I personally think there is one but have not been brave enough to highlight it publicly to date.
That said, two reasons compel me to post this. One is that the book Complications is out (buy one! Fun Christmas time reading for the whole family!) and it has a pretty solid chapter dedicated to this. And secondly, this article links to a study that once again finds a link to breast cancer:
The research was conducted by Yubei Huang et al. from the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics in the Tianjin Medical University Cancer Hospital.The researchers say they were initially puzzled by their findings, stating that Chinese women “historically” have had lower rates of breast cancer compared to women from western countries such as the US.
They found, however, that incidences of breast cancer in China increased at an “alarming rate” over the past two decades, corresponding with the rise of the Chinese Communist Party’s one-child policy.
I believe those who fail to study this are behind the times. A little bit like tobacco companies proclaiming their product is not addictive. Finding out what causes cancer is all so confusing and irrelevant and unscientific… until it’s not.by
