One of the goals of this book is to make this complicated subject understandable. Too often, "experts" (the researchers behind the studies) not only tell us what a study means - they tell us what "they think" the implications of the study are. The readers are often left in the frustrating position of trusting the researchers' opinions and are unable to critique the results for themselves. This subject is too important to leave the facts and their interpretation in the hands of a few experts, many of whom are subject to intense political and financial pressures. It is time for the people to decide for themselves whether or not today's women are at significantly increased risk for breast cancer because of having an induced abortion at an early age and/or by taking oral contraceptives at a young age.

Almost every reader of this book has a mother, a sister, an aunt or a friend who has or had breast cancer. Breast cancer is the most common cause of cancer death in the U.S. in women ages 20-59. In the U.S. nearly 1 out of every 8 women will develop breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. You may read the ebook below or click here.
