At one time or another, most of us have taken antibiotics. If you have, you need to read this.

A Finnish study published in 2002 looked at the relationship between women who had taken antibiotics for urinary tract infections and their breast cancer risk and found a link between the antibiotics that these women took and breast cancer.

Another study was conducted by researchers from the National Cancer Institute in Washington, D.C. After conducting a more vigorous study, they found that "the more antibiotics women used, the greater their breast cancer risk was. Over an average 17-year period, women who took antibiotics for more than 500 days, or had more than 25 antibiotic prescriptions, had more than twice the risk of breast cancer as women who had not taken any antibiotics."

It's something to think about the next time your doctor prescribes antibiotics for you.
