(PINTO:) YOUR MAIN SKILL IS IN THE AREA OF BREAST SURGERY >> YES SINCE AROUND 1994 THAT HAS BEEN PRETTY MUCH ALL THAT I DO IS BREAST SURGERY (PINTO:) SINCE 1994 TELL US ABOUT THE INSTITUTE ABOUT BREAST CANCER PREVENTION INSTITUTE (BCPI) WHAT IS ITS ORIGIN? WHEN DID IT BEGIN? >> WE ARE A 501 3 C CORPORATION EDUCATIONAL WE WANT TO EDUCATE LAYPEOPLE AND PROFESSIONALS ABOUT THE MANY WAYS THAT THEY CAN LOWER THE RISK OF BREAST CANCER YOU GET PAID FOR DOING A MASTECTOMY DO NOT GET PAID TELL PEOPLE HOW TO LOWER THEIR RISK I STARTED CONCENTRATING ON BREAST SURGERY, IN THE EARLY 1990’S, WHEN I GRADUATED MEDICAL SCHOOL, IT WAS ONE IN 12 NOW IT IS ONE IN SEVEN IN THE ’90S ONE IN EIGHT WOMEN WOULD GET IT BREAST CANCER IN THEIR LIFETIME NOT ONLY THAT WHEN I GRADUATED MEDICAL SCHOOL IN THE ’70S GRANDMOTHER, POST, MENOPAUSAL WOMEN WOULD GET BREAST CANCER THERE WAS ONE MONTH WHERE I SAW THREE WOMEN IN THEIR 30’S, EACH OF THEM HAD THESE LITTLE CHILDREN, TWO AND THREE YEARS OLD, THEY HAD BREAST CANCER I STARTED SAYING WHAT HAS CHANGED? WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THAT WE’RE SEEING SO MUCH IN THE YOUNG WOMEN? SO IN 1994, JANET DALEY FOR THE NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE DID A STUDY ON ABORTION AND BREAST CANCER FOUND A 50% INCREASE IN RISK THAT WAS COVERED IN TIME MAGAZINE FOR IN 1996 DR. JOEL BRIND WHO IS THE AUTHOR OF AN ANALYSIS TO LOOK AT THE STUDIES AT THAT POINT IN TIME TO DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN MISCARRIAGES AND ABORTIONS MISCARRIAGES ARE MEDICALLY TURNED SPONTANEOUS ABORTION AND DIFFERENTIATED THOSE TWO THINGS AND FOUND THAT THE GREAT PREPONDERANCE OF THE STUDY SHOWED THERE WAS A LINK AT THAT POINT I STARTED ASKING MY PATIENTS A COMPLETE REPRODUCTIVE HISTORY IT WAS NOT LIKE HOW MANY TIMES WE PREGNANT AND HOW MANY CHILDREN BUT WHAT HAPPENED TO THE PREGNANCY? DID YOU MISCARRY IN THE FIRST TRIMESTER? IF YOU HAVE AN ABORTION? AND I FOUND THAT MY 30 YEAR-OLD AND 40 YEAR-OLD WOMEN MOSTLY HAD IN COMMON THAT THEY HAD AN INDUCED ABORTION AND CONTRACEPTION IN THEIR BACKGROUND I SAID THIS IS A REAL THING SO I CONTACTED DR. BRENT TO COME DOWN TO OUR HOSPITAL AND GIVE A TALK I CREATED A ONE-PAGE SHEET WITH HIM WERE ON THE FRONT PAGE WE HAD THE EPIDEMIOLOGY AND THE PHYSIOLOGY ABOUT THE ABORTION AND BREAST CANCER LINK AND ON THE BACK OR PREFERENCES FOR THE LITERATURE I CORNERED THIS HARVARD PROFESSOR THAT RUNS RISK ASSESSMENT AT DANA-FARBER INSTITUTE IN 1999 I SAID YOU SPOKE ONE HALF-HOUR ABOUT RISK BUT YOU NEVER MENTIONED ABORTION SHE SAID WILL SOME STUDIES SAY YES AND SOME SAY NO I SAID YOU CANNOT TELL ME THAT THE PREPONDEREANCE OF THE STUDIES AND HERE IS THE LIST I WAS MAKING HER IS REALLY UNEASY (PINTO:) NOT GOING TO TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER (PINTO:) YOU ARE NOT PART OF THE HUSHED GAME >> I SAID JANET I WILL SEE HER IN A MEETING IN A FEW WEEKS THE SAID TALK TO HER ABOUT IT CAN I CALL YOU IN BOSTON AFTER YOU SEE HER? SHE SAID YES IT WAS MY JOB EVERY WEDNESDAY TO CALL HER UP ON MY DAY OFF AFTER ABOUT SIX WEEKS SHE ANSWERED MY PHONE CALL THE FIRST THING SHE SAID TO ME WAS NOW LOOK I KNOW IT IS A RISK IT IS NOT A REALLY BIG ONE BUT IT IS A RISK I DO NOT CHOOSE TO TALK ABOUT IT BUT IF YOU DO IF YOU ARE INTERESTED YOU DO THE RESEARCH YOU TALK RESEARCH SO IT WAS LIKE THE FIRST TIME ANYBODY REALLY BIG IN MEDICINE CIRCLES HAD SAID LOOK I KNOW IT IS TRUE LITERALLY A WEEK LATER JOEL BRIND CALLS ME UP AND SAYS HOW ABOUT WE START AN ORGANIZATION AND WE WILL START TEACHING PEOPLE ABOUT THESE OTHER RISK FACTORS FOR BREAST CANCER IT WAS LIKE JUDY HAD GIVEN ME A MISSION SO DR. BRIND AND I AND TWO OTHER MEDICAL DOCTORS

STARTED THE BREAST CANCER PREVENTION INSTITUTE (BCPI) THAT IS HOW WE GOT STARTED IN (PINTO:) WAS A SCIENTIST INVOLVED? >> YES DR. BRIND HE TEACHES AT THE COLLEGE IN NEW YORK HIS BACKGROUND IS IN BIOCHEMISTRY AND STEROID METABOLISM AND ESTROGEN IS A STEROID (PINTO:) YOU FOUNDED THE GROUP YOU BECOME AN INSTITUTE YOU A 501 C 3 HOW WAS THIS INFORMATION AND RESULTS AND FACT-FINDING HOW IS THAT BEING RECEIVED? LET’S SAY BY THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY? >> PROBABLY NOT REAL WELL ON INDIVIDUAL TERMS, LIKE IF I SPEAK TO A DOCTOR, AND I SAID YOU HEAR ABOUT THIS? THEY SAY YES THAT MAKES SENSE I JUST HAD A 26 YEAR OLD WITH BREAST CANCER THAT HAD AN ABORTION AT 16 THE INDIVIDUAL DOCTORS IS OK BUT IF YOU TALK TO ANY OF THE LEADERSHIP, NOT WANT TO TOUCH IT LIKE A HOT POTATO THINK IN THE YEAR 2000, WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA BREAST CANCER PREVENTION INSTITUTE (BCPI) HAD AN EDUCATIONAL TABLE AT A REALLY BIG BREAST CONFERENCE (PINTO:) A SECULAR CONFERENCE? >> MIAMI BEACH A YEARLY CONFERENCE THREE DAYS LONG 900 PEOPLE PATHOLOGISTS, RADIOLOGISTS THE SPECTRUM OF PEOPLE WOULD TREAT BREAST CANCER AND THEY SAID OK YOU MAY HAVE A TABLE THIS IS HOW MUCH IT COST JOEL SAID AND LET US TRY TO GET IT CHEAPER THIS IS EXPENSIVE AND I SAID NOT COMPARED TO WHAT OTHERS PAY BUT HE DID SO THE PERSON THE GUY RUNNING THE CONFERENCE SAID TO HIM WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU DO JOEL TOLD HIM NEXT THING YOU KNOW OUR CHECK IS SENT BACK THEY HAD RUN OUT OF TABLES WHEN I GOT TO THE CONFERENCE AND TALK TO DR. OSMOND I SAID WHY DID YOU DO THAT? AND I SAID TO HIM AT ONE POINT YOU KNOW ABOUT —- SAYS YES HE IS JEWISH A JEWISH DOCTOR IN THE EARLY 1800’S TOLD THE GERMAN DOCTORS THAT ON THEIR WARDS WOMEN DIED ABOUT 30 PERCENT OF THE TIME FROM FEVER BUT ON THE MIDWIVES WARDS THE DEATH RATE WAS ABOUT 3% HE SUGGESTED THEY WASH THEIR HANDS THEY DID NOT KNOW ABOUT GERMS BUT HE KNEW THAT THERE WERE ODOR PARTICLES ON THE DOCTORS’ HANDS THEY DID THIS EXPERIMENT WHERE THEY WASHED THEIR HANDS IN SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE LIKE CLOROX GOT RID OF THE ODOR PARTICLES AND ALL OF THESE WOMEN LIVED SO YOU WOULD THINK THEY WOULD GIVE THEM A MEDAL INSTEAD THEY TORTURED HIM TO THE POINT THAT HE WENT BACK TO BUDAPEST AND ENDED UP IN AN INSANE ASYLUM WHERE HE DIED BUT THIS WAS AFTER HE HAD WRITTEN A TREATISE ON THE FEVER AND HAND WASHING AND HE GOT LEFT OUT OF THE LONDON PARIS MEDICAL SOCIETY SO THAT IS NO DR. WHOSE MISSION IS TO MAKE YOU BETTER WANTS TO EVER THINK THAT SOMETHING THEY DID MIGHT HAVE HURT YOU (PINTO:) RIGHT >> EVEN PEOPLE THAT ARE IN PRIVATE PRACTICE AND DO ABORTION THEY THINK THEY’RE SAVING TEENAGERS THEY ARE ALLOWING THEM TO GO ON WITH THEIR LIFE (PINTO:) THEY THINK THEY’RE DOING SOCIETY A FAVOR >> ABSOLUTELY SO BIRTH CONTROL PILLS, THE GROUP ONE CARCINOGENS FOR BREAST CANCER WE HAVE AN EPIDEMIC OF BREAST CANCER, THE RISK OF NON INVASIVE BREAST CANCER IN WOMEN UNDER 50 IN PRE MENOPAUSAL WOMEN HAS GONE UP 400 PERCENT SINCE THE ’70S WE KNOW THAT FROM THE CANCER STATISTICS THAT THE NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE COLLECT IT IS NOT A PUBLIC EDUCATION MISSION OF THEIRS TO SAY 85 PERCENT OF THE WOMEN IN THIS COUNTRY OF REPRODUCTIVE AGE WHO HAVE TAKEN THE PILL AND MAYBE IT IS NOT SUCH A GOOD IDEA WHY WOULD ANYBODY WHO IS HEALTHY CHOOSE TO TAKE A GROUP ONE CARCINOGEN? IS THE OBGYN SEEING WOMEN TWICE A YEAR FOR THE PAP AND PELVIC AND TO RENEW THEIR BIRTH CONTROL PILLS THAT IS A LARGE PART OF THEIR INCOME

THEY DO NOT WANT TO THINK THAT THEY ARE GIVING THEIR PATIENTS CARCINOGENS SAID THE RISK IS LOW AND IT IS LOW IF YOU THINK ABOUT WHAT IS A HIGH RISK IF YOU SMOKE CIGARETTES THERE’S ABOUT A 50-100% INCREASE OF RISK AND BREAST CANCER AND BIRTH CONTROL PILLS IS ONLY 30 PERCENT OVERALL (PINTO:) ONLY 30% >> WELL WHAT HAPPENED TO, IN 2002 WHEN WOMEN WHO WERE TAKING HRT FOUND THAT THEY HAD A 26% INCREASE RISK, 67 MILLION OF THEM THEY FOUND OUT IN THE PUBLIC PRESS THAT IT WAS A RISK, HALF OF THEM STOPPED FROM 2002 TO 2007 THE RISK OF BREAST CANCER AND THOSE WOMEN WENT DOWN 11 PERCENT AND STAYED THERE AND BIRTH CONTROL PILLS OF THE SAME DRUGS IN HIGHER POTENCY FORMS THEY ARE JUST AS RISKY FOR THE YOUNG WOMEN WE KNOW BY ATTRIBUTABLE RISK STUDIES THAT 15 PERCENT OF PRE-MENOPAUSAL BREAST CANCER IS ATTRIBUTABLE TO THE PILL WE COULD KNOCK OUT TENS OF THOUSANDS OF CASES OF BREAST CANCER WE JUST TOOK AWAY THE PILL INSTEAD OF MAKING IT FREE WITH THE OBAMACARE (PINTO:) OBVIOUSLY, YOU SAY NOT EVERY WOMAN WHO HAS CONTRACTED BREAST CANCER HAS NECESSARILY CONTRACTED IT BECAUSE OF AN ABORTION OR THE PILL, BUT THERE ARE SOME THAT HALF 15 OR 20 PERCENT SAY YOU HAVE TO ASK INFORMATION WISE THIS IS NOT NECESSARILY RELIGION DO YOU REALLY WANT TO TAKE THIS? >> YOU KNOW BY STUDIES IN POPULATIONS THE EFFECT OF STOPPING THE PILL, YOU CAN DETERMINED THAT RISK FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL WOMAN AND YOU NEVER KNOW WHY YOU GOT BREAST CANCER COULD BE A RANDOM MUTATION AND THE VAST MAJORITY OF WOMEN WHO HAVE HAD ABORTIONS NEVER GET BREAST CANCER BUT SOME OF THEM DO, SO THEY TALK ABOUT SOCIAL JUSTICE THE CHURCH TALKS ABOUT SOCIAL JUSTICE ONE OF THE THINGS DOCTORS HAVE TO DO IS GIVE THEIR PATIENTS AUTONOMY THE FREEDOM TO MAKE THEIR CHOICE HOW MANY MAKE THAT CHOICE WITH INCOMPLETE INFORMATION? THAT IS AVAILABLE TO DOCTORS THAT IS KNOWN BY DOCTORS (PINTO:) LET’S GET INTO THE FACTS I AM NOT SURE YOU ARE SAYING THAT THE PILL THE CONTRACEPTIVE THAT CONTRACEPTIVE THAT MAKE UP YOU TALK ABOUT ABORTION, WHY AND HOW DOES THAT CONTRIBUTE TO BREAST CANCER ? IT IS A BRUTAL THING IS IT WHAT ARE THE FACTS? >> IN THE MIDDLE AGES THE PEOPLE WHO GOT BREAST CANCER WERE NUNS BUT AS THEY WERE LARGELY CHILDLESS WE’VE ALWAYS KNOWN THAT WOMEN WHO HAVE CHILDREN BREAST CANCER HAVE A LOWER RISK (PINTO:) BEING CHILDLESS MAY BE A RISK? >> IS ABOUT A 90% INCREASE RISK IN THIS COUNTRY IN THE ’70S IT WAS ABOUT 10% AND BY 2000 IT WAS 18 PERCENT REMAINED CHILDLESS SO THAT IS A BIG RISK (PINTO:) WHAT HAPPENS? >> WHEN YOU GO THROUGH PUBERTY YOU GET A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF BREAST TISSUE ALL OF THE BREAST TISSUE IS CANCER VULNERABLE IF I PERCENT OF IT IS TYPE ONE LOBULES WHERE DUCTAL CANCER STARTS DUCTAL CANCERS ARE 85 PERCENT OF ALL OF OUR BREAST CANCERS 25 PERCENT IS TYPE TWO LOBULES WHERE IT STARTS WOMEN WHO HAVE NOT HAD A CHILD, ARE MUCH MORE SUSCEPTIBLE TO THE CARCINOGENS WE GET EXPOSED TO I THINK A REALLY GOOD EXAMPLE OF THIS IS IF YOU SMOKE CIGARETTES, YOU HAVE NOT HAD A CHILD, YOUR RISK OF BREAST CANCER GOES UP 600% THAT WOMAN WHO DECIDED TO TAKE UP SMOKING HAS ALREADY HAD A CHILD HER RISK OF A GOES UP 69% A TENFOLD THE DIFFERENCE AFTER GOING THROUGH CHILDBIRTH, 85% OF HER BREAST TISSUE HAS TURNED INTO CANCER RESISTANT LOBULES SHE ONLY HAS ABOUT 10 OR 15 PERCENT OF HER BREAST TISSUE

THAT IS STILL VULNERABLE TO FORMING CANCER SO THE EARLIER IN LIFE WE HAVE CHILDREN THE LOWER OUR RISK I’M A BAD EXAMPLE I HAD MY FIRST AND ONLY CHILD AT 41 I HAVE A VERY LONG SUSCEPTIBILITY WINDOW BETWEEN WHEN I WENT THROUGH — TO THE TIME I HAD A FULL TERM PREGNANCY WOMEN WHO WANT THAT LONG WINDOW SO THEY CAN GO TO SCHOOL AND ALL: (PINTO:) WHICH IS THE MANTRA >> WHAT IS BAD IS THEY’RE TAKING GROUP ONE CARCINOGENS IN THE FORM OF BIRTH CONTROL PILLS SO THAT THEY CAN HAVE A LONG WINDOW IT IS THE WORST THING THEY CAN DO THERE ARE BENEFITS WHEN YOU TAKE MEDICATION BUT YOU ARE SICK AND YOU NEED THE MEDICATION AND YOU NEED TO GET BETTER SO YOU TAKE THAT RISK BUT THE FERTILE WOMAN IS NOT SICK FACTOR FERTILITY MEANS THINGS ARE WORKING RIGHT AND SHE HAS A GOOD ENDOCRINE SYSTEM WHY WOULD YOU THROW AT HER A GROUP ONE CARCINOGEN AND NEVER LET HER MAKE THAT CHOICE? (PINTO:) LET US PAUSE THERE WE’RE TALKING WITH DR. LANFRANCHI PRESIDENT OF BREAST CANCER PREVENTION INSTITUTE (BCPI) < WWW.BCPINSTITUTE.ORG > WE’RE HAVING AN IMPORTANT CONVERSATION HERE HOPE YOU’RE LISTENING WE WANT TO DO WORK THAT IS BENEFICIAL NO MATTER WHAT WE HAVE DONE IN LIFE AND GET YOU THE BEST INFORMATION POSSIBLE NOW TO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICES NOW FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY AND LOVED ONES WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU SO PLEASE EMAIL US, CALL US WE’RE GOING TO TAKE A BREAK WE WILL BE RIGHT BACK DO NOT GO AWAY (APPLAUSE ) (THEME MUSIC FOR JIM AND JOY) (THEME MUSIC FOR JIM AND JOY) (APPLAUSE) (PINTO:) WELCOME BACK YOU ARE AT HOME WITH JIM AND JOY AND REMEMBER WE WANT YOU TO BE A PART OF OUR SHOW IF THIS CONVERSATION IS RAISING QUESTIONS FOR YOU YOU MAY CALL THE PHONE LINES ARE OPEN AND YOU CAN SHARE YOUR QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS CALL US AT 1-800-221-9460 OR OUTSIDE OF NORTH AMERICA OR BIRMINGHAM, AL CALL 1-205-271-2980 OR SEND AN EMAIL JIMANDJOY@EWTN.COM REMEMBER YOU MAY ALWAYS SEND US AN E-MAIL DURING THE LIVE SHOW HOPEFULLY WE USE YOUR QUESTION ON THE AIR THIS IS PRO-LIFE MONTH IN THE MONTH OF JANUARY YOUR DISCRETION IS ADVISED BECAUSE SOME OF THE TOPICS THAT WILL NOT BE SHARING MIGHT NOT BE WELL FOR LITTLE CHILDREN (PINTO:) DOCTOR, LET US DISCUSS THIS AREA OF POSSIBLE BREAST CANCER LINK WITH PREGNANCY LOSS GO OVER THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF LOSSES WHEN YOU EXPERIENCE A PREGNANCY LOSS AND GESTATIONAL AGE, PERIOD IN PREGANANCY DOES IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE? >> THE POINT OF GESTATION, OF PREGNANCY WHERE WE GET THE PROTECTIVE EFFECT OF THAT PREGNANCY WITH REDUCED CANCER RISK HAPPENS AT 32 WEEKS ANY PREGNANCY THAT ENDS BEFORE 32 WEEKS THAT WAS HORMONALLY NORMAL CAN INCREASE YOUR RISK AND THAT IS WHY PREMATURE BIRTH BEFORE 32 WEEKS INCREASES YOUR RISK OF BREAST CANCER BUT 90 PERCENT OF MISCARRIAGES HAPPEN THE FIRST TRIMESTER DOCTORS REFER TO THAT A SPONTANEOUS ABORTION THEY DO NOT INCREASE THEIR RISK OF BREAST CANCER THE REASON IS THOSE PREGNANCIES WHERE THE HORMONE LEVELS WERE LOW, AND YOU HAVE NOT STIMULATED YOUR BREAST TISSUE TO GROW, SO THE BREAST DOUBLES IN VOLUME BY 20 WEEKS MIDPOINT IN YOUR PREGNANCY BUT IT IS ONLY GROWING THE TYPES OF BREAST CANCER THAT GET CANCER WHEN YOU MISCARRY A LOT OF WOMEN WILL MISCARRY AND THEY SAY I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW I WAS NOT AND DID NOT KNOW I WAS PREGNANT THE REASON THEY DID NOT KNOW IS BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT SICK TO THEIR STOMACH BECAUSE THAT ESTROGEN LEVELS WERE LOW DID NOT HAVE SORE OR TENDER BREASTS BECAUSE THEIR LEVELS WERE LOW SO THOSE FIRST TRIMESTER MISCARRIAGES DO NOT INCREASE RISK OF BREAST CANCER (PINTO:) BECAUSE YOU DO NOT HAVE THE PREGNANCY SYMPTOM >> AND YOU ARE NOT INCREASING THE PLACES IN YOUR BREAST FOR BREAST CANCER TO START

IT IS LIKE A NUMBERS GAME YOUR BREASTS GET BIGGER UP TO 20 WEEKS THEY GET BIGGER WITH IMMATURE LOBULES FOR CANCERS START IN AFTER 32 WEEKS AT MOST 85% OF THOSE LOBULES THAT BREAST TISSUE BECOMES CANCER RESISTANT THAN YOU GET THE BENEFIT OF HAVING HAD A PREGNANCY THAT ONE WENT AFTER 32 WEEKS (PINTO:) THAT IS THE KEY GETTING THE BREAST DEVELOPMENT AND THE LOBULES TO THAT POINT OF MATURITY WHERE THEY CAN WARD OFF MUCH BETTER ANY ATTACKS THAT MIGHT LEAD TO BREAST CANCER >> THAT’S THE POINT THEY HAVE CHANGED SO THAT THEY CAN PRODUCE 32 WEEKS (PINTO:) THEN PREGNANCY LOSS AT AROUND THAT TIME A LITTLE BIT BEFORE OR AN ABORTION AROUND THAT TIME OF 30 WEEKS >> THE LONGER YOU ARE PREGNANT BEFORE ABORTION THE HIGHER RISK OF BREAST CANCER 3% INCREASE IN EVERY WEEK OF GESTATION AND 32 WEEKS (PINTO:) WE RUN A PREGNANCY MEDICAL CENTER WE’RE SEEING CLIENTS WHOSE PARENTS PUT THEM ON BIRTH CONTROL AT THE AGE OF 15 THEY HAVE BEEN ON BIRTH CONTROL AND (PINTO:) CHEMICAL BIRTH CONTROL (PINTO:) THEN MAYBE WHEN THEY GO OFF TO COLLEGE THEY GET PREGNANT AND THEY HAVE AN ABORTION THEY WENT BACK ON BIRTH CONTROL THEN THEY ARE SMOKING AND DRINKING WHAT THEIR CHANCES? >> THEY HAVE INCREASED RISKS AS A PERSON YOU ARE AUTONOMOUS HE SHOULD BE ABLE TO MAKE CHOICES IF YOU WANT TO TAKE IN CARCINOGEN TO CONTROL YOUR FERTILITY IS TO YOUR CHOICE BUT TO HAVE TO KNOW YOU ARE AT AN INCREASED RISK SO THAT YOU CAN GET SCREENED AT AN APPROPRIATE AGE TAKING BIRTH CONTROL PILL BEFORE THE AGE OF 18 IS EXTREMELY DAMAGING IN 2009 THERE WAS A PAPER WRITTEN THAT SHOWED OVER 300 PERCENT INCREASE RISK OF TRIPLE NEGATIVE BREAST CANCER IN WOMEN WHO TOOK THE PILL BEFORE THE AGE OF 18 THAT IS AN EXTREMELY BAD THING TO DO FOR TEENAGERS AND THE MOTHERS WILL TAKE THEIR KIDS TO THE GYNECOLOGIST AND SAY SHE HAS IRREGULAR PERIODS AND THEY ARE DISTURBING HER, INSTEAD OF SAYING GOOD BECAUSE SHE HAS SHE WILL HAVE A LOWER RISK OF BREAST CANCER THEY SAY I CAN FIX THAT I CAN MAKE IT REGULAR WITH THE PILL THAT IS A BAD REASONS ACNE WE HAVE SO MANY GOOD DRUGS FOR ACNE THAT YOU DO NOT NEED TO TAKE THE PILLS TO CONTROL ACNE (PINTO:) BUT THEY PASS IT OUT AS IF THIS WAS THE CARTE BLANCHE AND CURE ALL PILL BUT IT IS DEADLY >> I HAVE A BROCHURE ON OUR WEBSITE THAT YOU GET CAN HARD COPY (PINTO:) >> IT IS NOT A POPULAR IN SOME CIRCLES BECAUSE IS BLOOD TO CLOT IF IT CLOTS IN YOUR BRAIN YOU HAVE A STROKE IF IT CLOTS IN THE HEART TO HAVE A HEART ATTACK IF YOU HAVE A CLOT IN YOUR LEG AND IT MOVES TO YOUR LUNGS ALL OF THOSE THINGS ARE LETHAL AND THEY ARE INCREASED RISK WITH THE PILL THE OTHER THING IT INCREASES YOUR RISK FOR PICKING UP HPV AND HIV BECAUSE WHAT IT DOES IT INTERFERES WITH THE CERVICAL MUCUS PLUG THAT PROTECTION CERVIX IN THE TRANSFORMATION WERE THESE VIRUSES WHERE THEY GET IT, IT GIVES YOU CANCER, CERTAIN GROUPS, THIS IS VERY CONTROVERSIAL, WE HAVE NOT TALKED ABOUT IT, IT ALSO INCREASES THE RISK OF DEATH THROUGH INTIMATE PARTNER VIOLENCE FOR THIS REASON WHEN YOU’RE ON THE PILL IT CHANGES HOW YOU PICK YOUR MATE IF YOU’RE ON YOUR PILL WHEN YOU CHOOSE A MATE THEY TEND TO BE PEOPLE THAT HAVE VERY SIMILAR TO YOU IN IMMUNOHYSTO COMPATABILITY GENES YOU HAD COUPLES THAT HAVE VERY LIKE GENES IN THE COMPATIBILITY GENES

YOU TEND HAVE UNSTABLE RELATIONSHIPS WHERE THE WOMEN REFUSE SEX MORE FREQUENTLY AND HAVE BEEN SOCIOLOGICAL TERMS MORE EXTRA PAIR BONDINGS THEY CREATE UNSTABLE MARRIAGES THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH OF PREGNANT WOMEN IS NOT PLACENTAS BLEEDING, IT IS INTIMATE PARTNER VIOLENCE HOMICIDES YES (PINTO:) YES >> SO THEY DID A STUDY IN CELEBRATION OR IT CAME OUT IN CELEBRATION OF 50 YEARS OF THE PILL THE COVER OF TIME MAGAZINE THIS STUDY SHOWED IT WAS DONE IN ENGLAND BY THE ROYAL COLLEGE OF FAMILY PRACTITIONERS GENERAL PRACTITIONERS IT LOOKED AT WOMEN ON AND OFF THE PILL AND WERE THEIR DIFFERENCES IN HOW LONG THEY LIVED? IF THEY DIED OF CERTAIN THINGS EARLIER? THEY SAID THERE WERE ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERENCES IN THE TWO GROUPS BUT THERE WAS ONE GROUP WHERE THERE WAS A STATISTICALLY INCREASED RISK OF VIOLENCE AND DEATH THEY DID NOT KNOW HOW TO EXPLAIN IT BUT THE RESULTS WERE REAL AND STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT AND SO WHEN THE STUDY GOT PUBLISHED THERE WAS THIS DOCTOR ROBERTS WHO TEACHES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF LIVERPOOL IN ENGLAND HE WROTE A LETTER TO THE EDITOR AND SAID WELL WE HAVE DONE A LOT OF RESEARCH OF WHY THAT MIGHT HAPPEN THERE IS A VERY DEEP LITERATURE ON THAT PHEROMONAL CHANGE THAT YOU GET WHEN YOUR ON THE PILL (PINTO:) WE SEE THAT! I SEE THAT WITH CLIENTS WHO COME IN WE HAD A CLIENT WHOSE BOYFRIEND BEAT THE BABY AND BEAT HER REALLY BEAT HER BADLY KILLED THE BABY BUT THEN THE PILL CHANGES YOU IT CHANGES THE WAY YOU SMELL EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU THE KIND OF GUY YOU ARE ATTRACTED TO THEY KEEP ON ACCUSING THE SAME GUY THINKING THEY WILL GET DIFFERENT RESULTS >> THIS IS WHY VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED THERE WAS A STUDY DONE WHERE LAP DANCERS WHO WERE IN THEIR FERTILE PHASE GOT BIGGER TIPS THAN LAP DANCERS WHO WERE NOT MEN SITTING IN FRONT OF GLASS JARS CONTAINING T-SHIRTS OF WOMEN ON THE PILL MIGHT BE LOOKING AT MARILYN MONROE AND RATING HER OK AND THEN IF THEY’RE SITTING IN FRONT OF A GLASS JAR WITH T- SHIRTS OF WOMEN WHO ARE OFF OF THE PILL WHEN THEY WORE THEM, THEY COULD LOOK AVERAGE AND THEY WERE SAYING WOW SHE IS ATTRACTIVE THEY RATED HER MUCH HIGHER IT SHOWS HOW THEY CHANGED WHAT IS INTERESTING I WAS TELLING THIS TO A FAMILY PRACTICE RESIDENCE ON THE SERVICE AT THE HOSPITAL SAID NOW I KNOW WHY THERE IS THE SAME, I STARTED HAVING SEX TILL I STARTED ON THE PILL NOW I AM ON THE PILL AND I NEVER HAVE SEX (PINTO:) IT IS AMAZING THE IDEA IT IS WITH THE CREATION OF THE PILL IS HOW WE HAVE THIS SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP WITHOUT CONCEIVING A CHILD THEREFORE THIS IS GOING TO BE MORE PLEASURABLE AND I WILL BE MORE ATTRACTIVE? BUT WE GET USED AND IS >> UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES RIGHT (PINTO:) WE HAVE EMAIL >> WHEN YOU’RE EXPOSED TO A CARCINOGEN, AND YOU ARE UNLUCKY, AND A CELL MUTATES TO A CANCER CELL, TO GO FROM ONE CANCER CELL THE DOUBLES TO TWO AND THEN THE TO DOUBLE TO FOUR AND EIGHT IN 16 TO GET A TUMOR MASS 1 CM WHICH IS ABOUT THREE-QUARTERS OF AN INCH TAKES EIGHT TO 10 YEARS THAT IS WHY YOU TOOK THE PILL, THE STUDIES SHOW

THAT IF YOU HAVE NOT GOTTEN BREAST CANCER BY EIGHT TO 10 YEARS, AFTER TEN YEARS YOU ARE NOT GETTING BREAST CANCER BECAUSE YOU TOOK THE PILL IF YOUR ABORTIONS HAPPENED WHEN YOU ARE YOUNG AND NOW YOU ARE REALLY OLD, IF YOU GET BREAST CANCER IT IS NOT GOING TO BE DUE TO THAT ABORTION YOU KIND OF, THE POINT ABOUT THERE BEING LOW RISKS, IF YOU HAVE A LOW RISK OVER MILLIONS OF WOMEN, IT TRANSLATES INTO TENS OF THOUSANDS THAT IS WHY LOW RISKS IN COMMON DISEASES IS A PROBLEM YOU DO NOT WANT TO SO YOU WANT TO DO THINGS THAT WILL LOWER YOUR RISK LIKE THE OMEGA FATTY THREE ACIDS, STAYING AWAY FROM ALCOHOL HOW DOES ALCOHOL CAUSE BREAST CANCER? IT IMPACTS THE LIVER THE MORE YOU DRINK THE MORE YOUR LIVER DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY AND THAT IS WHAT METABOLIZES ESTROGEN SO MEN WHO DRINK TOO MUCH GET GYNOCOMASTIA BECAUSE THAT ESTROGEN LEVELS ARE UP IF WOMEN’S ESTROGEN LEVELS ARE UP THEY GET MORE BREAST CANCER, SO IF YOU LOOK ON OUR WEBSITE THERE’S A BOOKLET CALLED BREAST CANCER RISK AND PREVENTION THINK CHAPTER 14 TELLS YOU THE DIFFERENT THINGS THAT YOU CAN DO TO LOWER YOUR RISK FOR BREAST CANCER AND (PINTO:) YOU MENTIONED SCREENING EARLIER IN I THINK THIS IS SO IMPORTANT WE’RE SEEING SO MANY WOMEN A THOUSAND WOMEN LAST YEAR HALF OR APPROXIMATELY WERE SEXUALLY ACTIVE MANY ON CONTRACEPTION HALF OF HAVE AN ABORTION TO 12 ABORTIONS YOUNG KIDS AS YOUNG AS 12 YEARS WE HAVE TO GO OVER THE FACT SHEETS WE KNOW IN A FAMILY OR A WIFE OR CHILDREN OR RELATIVES WHO HAVE HAD ABORTIONS YOU HEAR ABOUT IT IT’S NOT EVEN GETTING INTO THE ETHICAL MORAL ARGUMENT JUST SAYING SHE IS FITTING THIS PROFILE THAT SAYS YOU NEED TO GET A MAMMOGRAM EARLIER ON SPEAK ABOUT THE NECESSITY EVEN IF PEOPLE ARE NOT CHANGING THEIR IDEA SAY WHAT THEY NEED TO GET DONE >> THE IMPORTANCE OF SCREENING IS FINDING CANCER EARLY PART OF THE PEOPLE WE SCREEN IN OUR BREAST CENTER HAVE STAYED AT 0 OR STAGE ONE STAGE ONE CANCERS ARE 95 PERCENT CURABLE THEY ARE SMALL TUMORS THEY GENERALLY CANNOT BE FELT DO NOT INVOLVE THE LYMPHNODES YOU CAN CURE THAT AND THEY WILL DIE OF SOMETHING ELSE SO WHEN THE USE SCREEN AND? YOU WANT TO GET SCREENED AT THE POINT AT WHICH YOU ARE MOST VULNERABLE IT USED TO BE THAT MOST BREAST CANCER DID NOT OCCUR IN PEOPLE THAT WERE IN THEIR 40’S YOU STARTED SCREENING AT 40 BUT NOW, AS YOU SAID, SHOWING WOMEN COMING IN THAT AND TAKING THE PILL SINCE THEY WERE 12 OR 14 15, NEED TO BE SCREENED SOONER THEY CANNOT BLOW OFF THAT LUMP THEY ARE FEELING OR THE DISCHARGE THAT THEY HAVE IN YOUNG WOMEN THEIR BREASTS ARE DENSE WHICH MEANS WHEN YOU DO AN X-RAY AND THE MAMMOGRAM THEY LOOK WHITE CANCERS ARE DENSE THEY LOOK WHITE SO IT IS LIKE TRYING TO FIND A WHITE RABBIT IN A SNOWSTORM SO YOU MAY NEED TO DO OTHER TYPES OF SCREENING WITH ULTRASOUND OR MRI THAT GIVE YOU IMAGES THAT ARE NOT BASED ON DENSITY THEN AFTER YOU ARE 40 AND YOU START GETTING PRE MENOPAUSAL OR PERI MENOPAUSAL THAT’S WHEN YOUR BREASTS LOSE THEIR DENSITY BUT ABOUT 60 PERCENT OF WOMEN IN THIS COUNTRY DO HAVE DENSE BREAST AT SOME LEVEL BREAST DENSITY IS A RISK FACTOR FOR BREAST CANCER BUT ALSO A MARKER HOW MUCH HORMONAL STIMULATION HAS MY BREAST TISSUE HAD? IF YOU’RE ON, I HAD A 70 YEAR OLD LADY SHE HAD NORMAL MAMMOGRAMS FOR A 70 YEAR OLD AND THEY WERE GRAY ONE YEAR SHE COMES IN AND THEY ARE ALL WHITE I SAID WHAT YOU TAKING? SHE SAID I’M NOT TAKING ANYTHING FOR I SAID YOU ARE TAKING SOMETHING WHAT IS DIFFERENT?
