ABC Link DENIAL Reaches Asian Research: Commentary (2015)

Last year I wrote in the BCPI Report about the veritable tsunami of Asian studies — largely from China and South Asia — that have sadly confirmed that the Abortion-Breast Cancer link (ABC link) is real and spreading to Asia, with a predictably staggering impact on millions of Asian women. Meanwhile, Western medical authorities have totally ignored this new body of research, continuing to rely upon flawed “recent” research that dates back a decade and more. That has not changed, but what has newly appeared — in both Chinese and Indian research — is a Western style broom that would sweep the evidence under the proverbial rug. In China, the 2013 meta-analysis of 36 Chinese studies by Yubei Huang, et al. confirmed what we had reported in our meta-analysis of worldwide ABC link research in 1996 — an overall 30% increased breast cancer risk among women who’d had any abortions. But they reported a larger risk increase of 44% which went up with two abortions, and to 89% for women with 3 or more abortions. Even more compelling was the Huang study’s inclusion of a meta-regression analysis, which explained why, in some studies where the prevalence of abortion was so high that most women had had at least one, the ABC link was masked by the lack of a proper comparison group. Huang et al. even cited — with proper attribution — the explanation for this anomaly which I had published in 2004. However, 3 months ago, in the same prestigious journal — Cancer Causes and Control — that published Huang’s 2013 meta-analysis, also published an “updated systematic review...
