BBC NEWS | Health | Ovary loss 'raises dementia risk'

From the BBC NEWS: Ovary loss 'raises dementia risk'

A Mayo Clinic, Minnesota, team found the risk was especially raised among young women - removal of one ovary by the age of 38 raised the risk by 260%.


When one of my friends had a hysterectomy (and it was for something fairly vague, fibroids, I think), she said the docs took out her ovaries "as long as we're in there," citing that it would cut her ovarian cancer risk because there'd be no ovaries to get the cancer.

But ovaries also secrete hormones (namely estrogen, which fights aging). There's aren't too many non-essential organs in our well-planned bodies. Think before you chop!

Here's another examples of let's not mess with Ma Nature, please!

Yes but all she would have had to do was tell the docs she did not want the ovaries taken out if they were healthy. That's what I did but I certainly regret it now as I ended up with advanced ovarian cancer.

I'm very sorry to hear about your cancer.

Donation of an egg in my point of view is unethical. It is related to life ethics. If a couple could not have a child, adoption may be an only option.

It seems to me egg doners are all brain washed and they are not aware of that it is unethical action. Receipients are also unethical and the US law should protect this unethical behavior like some other country.

It is unbelivable that people think they are helping somebody by donating eggs. I am not talking about organ donation. Organ donation is life saving action. However, I am talking about life creation. No matter what the receipients are saying, this baby is not their own and it is not the way God intended! Stop doing this wicked action. It makes me really sick.

Christian point of view based on the Bible

I am having some hormone injections now and going to have the egg donation soon. After reading some of the comments, it's kinda freaking me off, Pre-menopause, would it applicable to most women?
