Abortion does not cause breast cancer
Sciencebloggers Orac and Marc Chu-Carroll tag team to produce the most authoritative takedown of the “abortion causes breast cancer” canard that I’ve yet seen. Short story: the study’s author simply dropped data that didn’t fit with his desired outcome, and he apparently can’t standard deviate his way out of a paper bag.
Also interesting is that this research comes from the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, whose work I’ve seen cited by anti-vaccinationists of both the conservative and liberal variety. I bet this guy gets published there all the time.
