Welcome to new readers from Hennessy's View blog, our friend Dawn Eden's Dawn Patrol and Amy Welborn's Open Book blog as well. I very much appreciate Bill H. (wow, the author of the 1993 book "The Conservative Manifesto"), Dawn and Amy (author of "De-coding 'The DaVinci Code'"), for referring their readers to the Deep Sixed article.

Let's hope everyone's strongly considering writing the NCI and their local news people to get on the stick.

A comment about the "Deep Sixed?" post about the NCI's strange, hidden abortion/breast cancer study in 2000 was made over at Amy Welborn's Open Book, and it is worth repeating here:

I've seen this pattern of suppression first hand. In 1995, researchers at a large, Midwestern university found a positive association between abortion and breast cancer. They actively sought suggestions from my research group about how to "hide" these findings.

In the 1980s, researchers at CDC studying cancer and steroid hormones (e.g., birth control pills) found an association among breast cancer and the Pill among young women. The researchers changed the age groups in the published study to hide the effect. (This is likely the same study marym refers to above.)

Sadly, perhaps ironically, one of the persons responsible for legalized abortion in the U.S. might herself have been a victim of the abortion-breast cancer link. Dr. Sarah Weddington, "Roe"'s attorney, had an abortion before she was 26 (when she brought Roe's case). She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001.
