    Link between immune system and mammary gland could shed new light on breast cancer

    The researchers, funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), found that cytokines, which have a central role in immune response, are used in the breast to promote the production of milk producing cells. The finding has implications for understanding breast cancer as cells that respond incorrectly to cytokine signalling can grow out of control and become cancerous.

    I wonder if this will help prove the correlation between abortion and breast cancer.

    I'd have to look a source up. I'm sure you can find something if you do a search.

    Long and the short of it is that your breast are immature. When you get pregnant for the first time, your breast start to change in order to prepare for milk production. Abortion cuts off the hormones making the changes and leaves them half done. It is surmised that these half changed cells are the ones that become cancerous later on.

    Apparently this doesn't happen with miscarriages as they are natural. Also if you have had a full term pregnancy before an abortion.

    A friend of mine had a law suit going trying to get Planned Parenthood to disclose this connection to patients. She lost the lawsuit. The judge ruled that forcing PP to disclose this violated their free speech rights.

    I have done a search since responding to this thread and there appears to be far more evidence against that theory than supports it.

    At best it would appear to be unsubstantiated at this time.
