*****CONNIE AUDIO ON CART*****
However, over the short run, during the actual time a woman takes the birth control pill, there may be a slightly increased risk of breast cancer.
Still, doctors aren't sure whether they're detecting more cancers because women on the pill are more likely to undergo screening.

Here's the bottom line:
Since the risk of breast cancer is small to begin with for a woman during her reproductive years, a 25-percent increased risk doesn't amount to much.
Then years after she stops taking it, her risk of breast cancer from the pill declines to zero.
After that, there may even be a protective effect.

He believes that American troops were accidentally poisoned by a combination of chemicals.
In his experiments on cockroaches at this U-S-D-A lab, Moss found that when he mixed DEET-- a perfectly safe insect repellant used by American soldiers in the Gulf, with Perido-Stigmine, the anti-nerve gas pill taken by the troops, the mixture instantly killed all the cockroaches
