Great news! The less pills the more children and the less breast cancer. These are the three rotating facts about world populations no matter what country you study. They are universal incontrovertible and true interdependent variables. The journals have all cooked the books to make the pill not only look safe but actually show it is good for your health! Who are they fooling? No other mammal has such a triad: numbers of progeny-breast cancer incidence-extraneous female hormone consumption. The reason is because animals in general don't take the pill.
The majority of breast cancers are hormone dependent and the basis of treatment is an anti-oestrogen. Why would you then have healthy women topping up their oestrogen levels for years ...and as a result developing breast cancer? Once this happens you then say "We better stop the pill because it is driving the cancer you now have and we'll put you on an anti-oestrogen." Am I missing something?
Competing interests: I have written a book outlining the breast cancer morbidity and mortality associated with oral contraceptive use called "The Screech Owls of Breast Cancer."
Recent evidence from long term observations of hundreds of thousands of women, in 10 European Countries, clearly demonstrated that the use of oral contraceptives reduced mortality by roughly 10%. 
Newer oral contraceptives increase womens' overall survival.
