The political season hit another low today when a Vermont legistator claimed that women using birth control pills resulted in men getting prostate cancer! I hope her outhouse door hits her in the butt as she is laughed out of office! Here's the link and a snippet......
Woman lawmaker suggests men get prostate cancer from women who use the Pill
A New Hampshire lawmaker thinks she has found one more reason for health insurance not to cover contraception for women.
During a Thursday hearing on a resolution calling for President Barack Obama to exempt religious institutions from covering birth control, state Rep. Jeanine Notter (R-Merrimack) made the surprising claim that female contraceptives cause prostate cancer in men.
The study published last year in the British Medical Journal Open found higher prostate cancer rates in countries where women were more likely to use birth control pills, but did not conclude the pill was the cause
A study, led by UC's Karen Knudsen, PhD, and published in the Jan. 1, 2005, issue of Cancer Research, found such prostate cancer cells proved to be vulnerable to exposure to the chemical BPA (bisophenol A), an industrial chemical and nonsteroidal environmental estrogen used in the manufacturing of food cans, milk container linings, food storage containers and water supply pipes. About 2.5 billion pounds of the chemical are produced each year.
