Women who had an abortion are 6.26% more likely to have breast cancer: Indian study

NEW DELHI, January 3, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Women who have had an abortion are 6.26 times more likely to develop breast cancer than women who have no such history, a new study in India has found.

A report published in the current issue of the Indian Journal of Cancer suggests that abortion makes the breast’s muscle tissue (epithelium) more likely to act as a cancer-producing agent. “It has been suggested that abortions leave the breast epithelium in a proliferative state with an increased susceptibility to carcinogenesis,” it says.

Perhaps more unnerving, that was not the greatest cancer risk facing women.

Women who consume oral contraceptive pills have a 9.5 times higher rate of breast cancer than women who do not use the drugs, researchers said.
