Hormonal Contraceptives Increase Risk of Brain Tumors

The media won’t admit that birth control causes breast and cervical cancers. The US government has a page downplaying it, claiming it reduces the risk of ovarian and endometrial cancers (which are much rarer anyway), while they admit it raises the risk of these other cancers.

They won’t admit that it is a primary cause of the obesity and “beast mode” features of modern American women.

But at least The Guardian will admit it causes brain tumors.

The Guardian:

Millions of women around the world who use certain hormone drugs for contraception and to manage conditions such as endometriosis may have a raised risk of rare, usually benign, brain tumours, researchers say.

Scientists found that prolonged use of certain progestogen medications was linked to a greater risk of meningioma, which are tumours (usually noncancerous) that form in tissues around the brain.

Progestogens are similar to the natural hormone progesterone. They are used in contraceptives, for gynaecological conditions such as endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome, and in hormone replacement therapies used during the menopause.

A handful of high dose progestogens are already known to raise the risk of meningioma, but in the latest study published in the BMJ, researchers at France’s National Agency for Medicines and Health Products Safety investigated eight more commonly used forms of the hormone.

Most meningiomas are not usually cancerous and grow slowly, but because they can put pressure on the brain they often need surgical removal. The tumours are rarely life-threatening, but the surgery involved carries risks, not least to brain structures near the tumours, which can sometimes be damaged.

Two oral pills, medrogestone and promegestone, were linked to a 4.1 and 2.7-fold greater risk of meningioma respectively; and medroxyprogesterone acetate, a contraceptive injection sold as Depo-Provera, was linked to a 5.6-fold higher risk. Because the study is observational, it cannot prove that the hormones cause the tumours. No excess risk was found for progesterone, dydrogesterone, or widely used hormonal intrauterine systems.

In a statement, Pfizer, the manufacturer of Depo-Porvera, said: “We are aware of this potential risk associated with long-term use of progestogens and, in collaboration with regulatory agencies, are in the process of updating product labels and patient information leaflets with appropriate wording.”

It is insane that this gets passed around to teenage girls to help them with their whoring.

It would be insane to support teenage whoring regardless. But with all of these health risks, that are documented and which people can’t deny (even if the media refuses to report on it), it’s double insanity.
