All Hormonal Contraceptives Increase Breast Cancer Risk

As Dr. Rath explains in chapter 9 of his classic book, ‘Why Animals Don’t Get Heart Attacks … But People Do’, long-term intake of estrogen and other hormones – both as hormonal contraception and hormone replacement therapy during menopause – causes a depletion of vitamins and other cellular nutrients in the body.

A study published in the scientific journal Nature in 1972 reported that women taking hormonal contraceptives have significantly lower blood levels of vitamin C than normal, for example. Other research has confirmed these results and concluded that the vitamin C depletion is associated with intake of the hormone estrogen.

Long-term use of hormonal contraceptives not only decreases levels of vitamin C, however, but also other essential nutrients such as B vitamins and calcium. As such, it is not the birth control pill itself that increases the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases and breast cancer, but the associated depletion of the body’s nutrient pool.
