If it's not OK for him to take steroids... why is it OK for her?

Breast Cancer Prevention Institute brochure

"The dangerous performance enhancing

steroids taken by athletes are

male steroid hormonal drugs

that build muscle.

One of their risks is liver cancer.

Similarly, female steroid hormonal drugs

build breast tissue.

They not only increase the risk

of liver cancer but breast and cervical

cancers as well.These powerful

steroid drugs are taken by millions

of teenage girls as BIRTH CONTROL PILLS.

Breast Cancer Prevention Institute

Why are teenage girls vulnerable to the cancer-causing effects of birth control pills? Teenagers are especially vulnerable to breast cancer risk because their breasts are growing and most have not yet developed cancer-resistant Type 3 lobules through a full-term pregnancy. Therefore, the cancer-causing combination contraceptive steroids (birth control pills) are especially dangerous for them."
