Breast cancer campaign fail: it has made no difference because it has not addressed the root causes

The Pink Ribbon campaign, for all its high profile and huge investment, has led to no detectable reduction in breast cancer, for a simple reason: it is not encouraging women to do the three things known to reduce breast cancer risk:

- have children earlier in life
- refrain from artificial contraception
- avoid induced abortions

The likely reason for this failure is that to encourage these things would be to challenge the very foundations of the sexual revolution.

For better words than I can muster and references to useful sources, see Fr Tim's blog.
