You know how pretty much any study that says there may be an increased rate of cancer if you use your cell phone, drink soda, eat meat or cook your lunch in the microwave.
But any study that says anything about contraception or IVF being in danger to women is typically met with silence by the mainstream media.
So CMR thanks the UK Telegraph for their report showing a link between IVF treatements in your women and breast cancer.
Researchers at the University of Western Australia found women who had IVF treatment at a younger age had a higher risk of developing the disease over the following 15 years.
Oestrogen, a hormone which is known to fuel certain forms of breast cancer, may be up to 13 times higher during an IVF cycle than normal.
Concerns have been raised about the use of strong hormones to stimulate the ovaries to produce more eggs during fertility treatment as hyperstimulation can be fatal.
I’m telling you that there’s a lot of Catholics out there who don’t have any clue that IVF is viewed as anything but a wonderful new way to make babies. I can think of three Catholics who didn’t.
I don’t know why we don’t discuss this more. We should absolutely promulgate this more. And besides being morally problematic, it’s dangerous.
