The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute claims that recent research indicating that the birth control pill may lower the risk of heart disease by a small amount is flawed. They are also skeptical about studies suggesting that the pill reduces breast cancer risk. These recent studies contradict earlier studies that suggest contraceptive use increases breast cancer risk and the risk of stroke and heart attack. It is however believed to reduce the risk of ovarian and endometrial or uterine cancer.
