In this Letter, the authors reply to an article that suggested the risk of breast cancer could be reduced by avoiding oral contraceptives. Drs. Raymond and Grossman argue that while the relationship between breast cancer and oral contraceptives is ambiguous, there is strong evidence that the pill lessens the risk of ovarian, uterine, and probably colorectal cancers.
