Researchers in Canada have recently been investigating the link between Prostate cancer and the use of the contraceptive pill. This came about due to the correlation between higher statistics prostate cancer diagnosis and the increased use of the contraceptive pill over the last 40 years.

This team of researchers from used two existing sets of data to pinpoint rates of prostate cancer and associated deaths and the proportion of women using common methods of contraception for 2007.

The study highlighted that in countries around the world where the proportion of women using the contraceptive pill is higher, the rates of prostate cancer in men is higher

The research is speculative and designed to prompt further consideration of the issues. Therefore definitive conclusions cannot be drawn yet, the researchers say.
