Communication Gap

On the radio yesterday Dr. Sanjay Gupta was heard to say that there are four areas in which a woman can work to reduce her risk of contracting breast cancer: diet, exercise, breastfeeding if she is a mother, and avoidance of–or at least minimal use of–menopausal synthetic hormone therapy. Funny that he neglected to mention the research being done all over the world connecting abortion and contraceptives to cancer. Studies are coming out of Asia as well as the West, and the Wellness Librarian will describe them in the next few postings. Meanwhile, without full information about the pros and cons of their healthcare decisions, women surely cannot be said to have “informed consent.”
