Here’s news on a another new study in relation to the commonly used drug, Clomid.
“Fertility drugs used by thousands of women to boost their chances of having a baby could double the risk of cancer.
The 23,000 women who take clomiphene every year have twice the chance of developing thyroid cancer, a study suggests.”
My colleague, Josephine Quintavalle, is quoted as saying, “The alarming thing is these drugs have been widely prescribed for years without doctors knowing their full effects.”
And Cloning researcher (who needs infertile women’s spare eggs – which is translation for conflict of interest) says this, “the study did not prove a “causal link” between clomiphene and thyroid cancer.” And this, “I don’t think there is any need for women to change their therapy based on its findings.”
