Birth Control Pills Cause Prostate Cancer

-Submitted by David Drumm (Nal), Guest Blogger

New Hampshire state Rep. Jeanine Notter (R-Merrimack) won’t be supporting preventative services for women, such as contraceptives, because it causes prostate cancer. I can find no medical studies that dispute Notter’s claim. Oral contraception has been associated with prostate cancer in this article.

H/T: Blue Hampshire.

  1. Well I think everything causes prostate cancer. Where is the study that disproves THAT? Can you cite me the exact statute?

    “This comes from the Bdaman school of scientific research, also known as “grasp at any straw that reinforces your preconception”.”

    Are you encouraging Bdaman to enter this thread? Please, no.
    I already have all the foolishness I need, thanks.

    1. Bob,

      You raise a valid fear, perhaps for the reason you stated my metaphor was ill-timed. 🙂

  3. “It is an ecological study and thus has, as with all correlational studies, significant limitations with respect to causal inference.”
    -Margell and Fleshner, the authors of the study

    Extreme understatement. But I’m glad they said it.
