080: the Pill, Your Fertility & Natural Birth Control - Jane Bennett

(original air date July 2016*)

What We Don't Know May Be Hurting Us

The birth control pill is convenient, prolific and utterly pervasive. It’s even touted as the cure for much that ails us. The Pill is taken by millions of women at some stage in their lives, and few of us realize that it is not without long term side effects. I am not a doctor, but clear links have been established between hormonal contraceptives and health dangers, including infertility and cancer.

It’s time to get the facts, and to educate ourselves so that we’re making informed decisions.

In this episode, Jane Bennett shares some of her extensive research, and empowers us to take back control over our health and choices. Join us, and if a friend or loved one can benefit from this information, please listen and share this episode with them.
