Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

A new study offers more compelling evidence that life expectancy for some U.S. women is actually falling, a disturbing trend that experts can't explain.

The latest research found that women age 75 and younger are dying at higher rates than previous years in nearly half of the nation's counties - many of them rural and in the South and West. Curiously, for men, life expectancy has held steady or improved in nearly all counties.  | Fox News

Advanced breast cancer cases are increasing in young American women overall and almost twice as fast among African-American women, according to a recent study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association. And some experts believe the use of hormonal contraceptive steroids and abortions have a lot to do with the trend.
Recent American Cancer Society estimates show that new invasive breast cancer cases, in women under 45 years old, increased from 16,150 to 25,600 cases between 2007 and 2011, with census figures showing no net change in this age population. The Cancer Society’s estimates since 2007, translates into a startling 11.8% annual increase averaged over five years, according to the National Breast Cancer Prevention Project, the first group to identify and publish this startling trend. This is the same age group most likely to use birth control drugs,
The group's broad definition of environment included lifestyle behaviors, such as exercise, alcohol consumption and maintaining proper weight.
But the committee also took note of pesticides, bisphenol A, flame retardants and other endocrine-disrupting chemicals thought to affect the breast.
The blood bears the chemical signature of environmental pollutants, some long banned, that the women were exposed to decades ago. Cohn, who directs the research in Berkeley, Calif., believes these early-life exposures may hold the key to understanding a woman's risk of breast cancer today.
Advanced breast cancer in women ages 25 to 39 rose to 2.9
cases for every 100,000 women in 2009 from 1.53 per 100,000 in
1976, a small though statistically significant increase,
according to a study published in the Journal of the American
Medical Association
. Applying the findings to the U.S.
population
showed that more than 800 cases of advanced breast
cancer occurred in this age group in 2009 from 250 in 1976.
