Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 30 THE LETHBRIDGC HERALD Friday April 6, Sex and cancer linked LONDON (CP) linking iex and cancer e led British doctors to urge thai women who have sex more than three part- neis a should have cal checks for early symptoms of ital cancer A seven-year study among, girls and women in Biad-' ford, Yorkshire, shows that, those who were had four times the incidence of I conical cancer than other fe-1 males. Another survey of 000 women, due for publication soon, shows an increase of between four and 10 times the risk among girls w ho said they started sexual ac- tuity in their teens or promiscuous Neither study offers anj firm scientific explanation of why fe- males who start sex activity un- usually early or are promis- cuous should be more prone to the disease than their sisters who aie more conservative and confine their sexual relations to a single partner SUPPORT THKSIS But the findings support the earlier thesis of Prof Sir John Stalhvorthy of Oxford Univer- sity that such girls run a much higher cancer nsk In the context of todaj's new morality, many doctors en- gaged in cancer research say they feel that the national de- pal tment of health should ex- tend cervical tests to all women. At present the Family Plan- ning Association clinics and a limited number of other centres aie the only places where women can have a cervical smear test National Health doctors re- fuse to do the test in their of- fices and refer patients to such the women of- ten to wait months for tests, unless the doctor suspects trouble and personally recom- mends an immediate test The Bradford survey, re leased Wednesday, was done among women attending the venereal Disease Clinic and j omen going for routine checks i at the ell-Woman Clinic. The cancer rate among those at the VD and more promis- 317 per women compaied with 73 at the Well-Woman clime, attended mainly married women and those not considered promis- cuous The suivey also showed that more women weie getting can- cer at a younger age, which doctors suggest was linked to greater sexual freedom among today's young people. The aver- age age when cancer showed suspect symptoms was 32 7li years younger than the average in earlier gen- erations. sears THIS SATURDAY IN WEEKEND MAGAZINE They're Giving The Cities Back To The People The big-city philosophy that development equals progress is giving way to a new concept that people's needs should come first, before the sprawling developments, spewing smokestacks and snaking expressways.
