Use of “the Pill” and bone changes in adolescent women

Science today recognizes that most new knowledge is never shared. New studies are finally funded, eventually the study is complete, the research is written, reviewed by other scientists and eventually published—all after great effort. But the people who participated in that research and others world-wide for whom the data are relevant, never learn about it. Although rarely there is media notice, often the publication just sits there.

The Centre for Menstrual Cycle and Ovulation Research (CeMCOR) decided long ago that all who participate in research studies, will learn both the meaning of their own data and the results of the whole study.

To share results of newly published studies, CeMCOR is making studies easy to understand through 5-slides answering five simple questions—what do we now believe? what question needs answers? what did we study? what did we find? and what do the results mean?

Here’s the first—a study about use of “the Pill” and bone changes in adolescent women.
