Birth control pill may reduce cancer risk

(KABC) Researchers at Oxford University in London analyzed data from 45 studies worldwide. Their study revealed that birth control pills may protect women from getting ovarian cancer.

Experts say that protection may even last decades after a woman stops taking the pill.

The study also showed the longer a woman stayed on the pill, the lower her risk of developing ovarian cancer.
