Breast cancer and the pill

Wearing pink ribbons and walking 60 miles will not cure breast cancer; however, the money raised by doing so enables the pharmaceutical complains to experiment with more drugs.

Breast cancer was as rare as “teeth in a chicken” until the birth control pill was introduced in the early 1960s. At that time, they issued a warning that this pill might cause breast cancer.

Today we are bombarded with pill commercials. Have you listened carefully to the possible side effects of these new drugs?

We’re not going to find the cure for breast cancer until we get rid of the cause.
