I'm ashamed to admit that I didn't realize how dirty this swing was until my wife asked me to clean it. It's not painted green, that's just years of gunk.

7259 tert_butoxide Commented this on the other thread, but why not here too. Interestingly, oral contraceptives *decrease* risk of [endometrial cancer](http://erc.endocrinology-journals.org/content/17/4/R263.long) by 50% and [ovarian cancer](http://www.sciencedirect.com.proxy.library.ohio.edu/science/article/pii/S0140673608601671) by up to 30%. (From a *much lower baseline;* those cancers have rates of 2.8 and 1.3% compared to breast cancer's 12%.) I find this interesting because what's good for the goose is *not* good for the gander. (If we can call any part of the female reproductive system a "gander.")
9606 smang_it_gurl "The overall absolute increase in breast cancers diagnosed among current and recent users of any hormonal contraceptive was 13 (95% CI, 10 to 16) per 100,000 person-years, or approximately *1 extra breast cancer for every **7690** women* using hormonal contraception for 1 year." Knowing the difference between absolute and relative risk is **imperative** when reading scientific literature.
728 NeedMoarLurk There is a link between fertility/birth rates and breast cancer incidence, I wonder how much that has a confounding effect?
4596 Avena_sativa The wording of this article is kind of sensationalized. It's important to distinguish between *absolute* versus *relative* risk increase when reporting the results. It sounds very sensational to say "the risk of breast cancer increased by 38%" but that doesn't mean it increased by 38 percentage points. For example, let's say that your risk of getting breast cancer as a 25-year-old is 1% per year. (It's likely way lower than that.) Then let's say you take a pill that increases your risk by 38% - now your chance of breast cancer is 1.38%, not 39%. Think of it this way: the chance of a young woman getting breast cancer is very low. Even if the risk doubled or tripled while on OCPs, the risk would *still* be very low.

166 CoinFlip_SkinnyDipp Serious question, wasn't this already known? I'm currently taking pharmacology and our lecture that talked about birth control was only a few weeks ago. I swear my professor said that WHI did a study years ago and it showed an increase in breast cancer.
91 roaisol Does the paper address if the mechanism is via exogenous hormones or via fewer natural hormonal cycles? If the former, that's yet another point in favor of IUDs, and hormonal IUDs prevent much bleeding while not having much in the way of systemic effects... The effects seem to slow down with more years on it, making me suspect that the exogenous hormones are the mechanism.
