Cancer And the Pill

I recently watched an episode of Dr. Oz. It had three "doctors" including himself encouraging all women of all shapes, sizes, and ages to start taking the pill and continue to take it for 5 years. They said that the pill has been known to decrease our risk in ovarian, uterine and even colon cancers. They did say however that it can still increase your risk of breast cancer if you have had any sort of scare with breast cancer in your life you should not take it. So we are swapping the risk of one type of cancer for the other and adding a ridiculous amount of unknown and un needed hormones to our bodies and chemically altering the natural cycle that we were given through ovulation, and this is all recommended by medical doctors??

They also said that the reason it would decrease ovarian and uterine cancers is that if taken over 5 years we would ovulate half as much and the ovulation process is what causes some cervical and uterine cancers. So these doctors are telling me that the God given process I and every other healthy woman out there was born with is eventually going to kill us? I don't think so!

The saddest part about this is.....now stick with me here, I know this is going to sound crazy, but I feel that the government uses mass media to feed us with information that they want us to have. They shove ideas in our face and down our throat with constant information coming at us from all angles. The government cares more about whether or not we have a TV in our homes than they do if we have health insurance! So, since billions of consumers buy into the lies, where is all the money going? Why don't we at least have health insurance as a result of a multi-billion dollar cancer industry? Why is there still no cure? (why would there be when cancer rakes in so much money every year??)

They get TV's in our homes and news on our channels and because a pretty doctor or two tells us that birth control is now good for us, even though we have known it to kill us for the past 15 years, we just order our next round, like lambs to the slaughter.

We love to take the easy and popular way out which throws us into this chain of events: Hormone influx-cancer-therapy-sickness-cancer-therapy-and finally if not death, bankruptcy, all the while doctors and the government take our money and continue to give away TV’s instead of health care.

I know I sound like a conspiracy theorist right now and I don't mean to sound so crazy, but as I was watching dr. oz. it seemed so apparent to me that these doctors just want us buying their product and I was SHOCKED that so many people bought into it!

Yes, to live an organic, healthy, God given life takes a LOT of discipline (I'm not saying I have it) however, I would MUCH rather watch what I eat, fuel my body with all of my God given creation than pump it full of chemicals that alter my natural state. This seems like common sense to me.

Next time someone tells us to take any sort of pill and even though they may be shiny and the pill may seem so easy to take and give us quick results, let’s stop and consider the source and the alternative!

Here's to your health!

Agreed! There are a TON of natural ways to prevent pregnancy and even more ways to alter our diets and do our best to prevent cancers and even cure them naturally. I believe that all the supplemental hormones in our medications and the hormones they are pumping into cows and our food is what resulted in all the cancer!

It's so much healthier (and safer) to find alternatives for treating medical conditions. When people start taking medicine for one condition, other conditions often develop. Then they need more medicine for those conditions. It is an endless cycle, and the side effects of the medicines make the conditions even worse. Great article.
