I just recently watched a dr oz show on the pill. New studies have shown that using the pill will reduce risks for ovarian, endometrial, and colorectal cancers by 50 percent. The basis for this claim is that women ovulate more than 500 times in a life time. When the egg is released it scars the ovary everytime. Doctors believe this scarring can promote cancer growth. Dr. Oz compared this to smoking and scaring the lungs which leads to lung cancer. To receive the best benefits a woman should take the pill for atleast five years. Also the doctors recommend all healthy women to take the pill until menopause. Any thoughts?
