The Pill

The Pill became publicly available in the 1960s and remains a popular choice of contraceptive

The researchers believe oestrogen by-products excreted in the urine of pill-users may have contaminated the food chain and drinking water.

The hormone is known to feed the growth of certain cancers.

The latest investigation looked at data from 2007 for individual nations and continents worldwide to see if there was any link.

The researchers found a significant association between contraceptive pill use in the population as a whole with both the number of new cases of, and deaths from, prostate cancer.

Not the full story, but enough to be scary.

Opinion:

Just another case of absolutely everything we do can have an adverse effect on humanity.

Sixty years of women pumping oestrogen laden urine into the environment, and now they find out that it could be a problem for us.

Admittedly the report is not conclusive, but these coincidences are too scary to ignore.
