The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends against the routine use of estrogen and progestin for the prevention of chronic conditions in postmenopausal women.
Despite the 2002 Women’s Health Initiative Study, where they had to STOP THE STUDY DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF WOMEN DEVELOPING BREAST CANCER, many doctors continue to prescribe this dangerous disease causing drug!!! Some have even tried to discount the study.
But now, 10 years later, tons of medical papers reviews, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends against the routine use of estrogen and progestin for the prevention of chronic conditions in postmenopausal women.
“The USPSTF concluded that the harmful effects of estrogen and progestin are likely to exceed the chronic disease prevention benefits in most women.”1!!!
(Quick note, for my male readers… Estrogen is implicated in ALL prostate cancers as well as male breast cancer! So please read the rest of this article!)
I know this is a sensitive issue. I also know this may be in direct conflict to what your gynecologist may have advised. But, I have a moral obligation to relay information especially if said information can prevent you from an increased risk of cancer!!! So please know, this is not just my opinion, but the opinion of doctors who have spent their respective careers researching hormone related cancers!
"The MWS (Million Women Study) findings of an increased risk of breast cancer in users of HRT, especially of estrogen–progestogen combinations, have now been replicated in over 20 other studies,. The Totality Of The Worldwide Evidence Is Now Overwhelming." Dr. Beral.
It horrible enough to have 1 in 8* fall victim to breast cancer; so I’m urging you not to do anything that would increase those odds. Since most cases of breast cancer occur when estrogen dominance is at its greatest, (middle age), reducing estrogen exposure is one of the first strategies to engage in to prevent this life threatening cancer that plagues 12% of all women! In fact, the first thing oncologist do when breast cancer (ovarian and uterine cancer as well) is to put women on very powerful estrogen blocking drugs, that by the way come with their own risk of serious side effects.
If that not enough… Hormone Replace Therapy also increases the risk of the following life threatening diseases; Heart disease, Clots, Stroke, Deep Venous Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism, Endometrial and Ovarian Cancer, and Cholecystitis (Gall Bladder Disease)! As if that is not enough, May 21st of this year, another study linked “The Pill” and HRT to Inflammatory Bowel Disease!!!
So here is a question for you… If you were told that estrogen is safe, why would oncologist immediately put you on estrogen blockers post cancer diagnosis?
What we do know is this. Estrogen exposure, especially of the 4 and the 17 oh estrogen increases the risk of hormone related cancers!!! (more about that will be covered in my talk)
Therefore, our goal should be to eliminate excess estrogen your body is producing right NOW, and not just after life threatening cancer develops! We should also help you avoid estrogens that we consume in the form of Xenoestrogens. (Xenoestrogens imitates estrogen and are as dangerous. They can be either synthetic or natural chemical compounds.)
Lastly I want to leave you with this… cancer researchers estimate that we can prevent up to 95% of all cancers with lifestyle changes!!! Please do EVERYTHING you can to PREVENT cancer!!!
This story continues to evolve, but one thing remains, there are certain lifestyle strategies that effectively (scientifically) reduce your lifetime risk of cancer!!!
I want to invite you to my talk this Tuesday @ 6:30 as I reveal ways to reduce your risk of cancer, while living a healthier more vibrant and energetic life!!!
