Since its creation, science and the Church have warned of the dangers of chemical birth control. From heart related problems, hormonal problems, blood clots and cancer; birth control does more harm than the supposed good some feminists and others posit. Well there is now a new harm: brain cancer. According to a new study found in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, prolonged used of hormonal contraceptives by younger women can lead to a significant risk for glioma. Glioma is a tumor that grows in the spine and brain. Glial cells mutate and effect the nervous system. Symptoms of this tumor are headaches, vomiting, nausea, seizures and visual loss. Over 2,000 women were part of the study ranging from ages 15 to 49.
Hopefully this study will further persuade women not to harm their bodies with these unnatural forms of birth control. Anything that alters the hormones of the body will disrupt the body's mechanism. This disruption can cause all kinds of problems. The human body is a complex collection of cells, tissues, hormones and genes directing all the above. If we tamper with this harmony of chemicals and tissue, then expect the body to react negatively.
