"HORMONE THERAPY BENEFITS MANY - WRONG!"

If your brain cells are still intact and not completely dead from taking FDA approved drugs then you were probably as shocked as I was when you read the recent headline “Hormone Therapy Benefits Many”. Seems drug propaganda from corporate drug dealers never stops!

A very quick look at some of the side effects of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) reveals a number of very disturbing trends. In 2003, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), supposedly the most prestigious medical journal in the world, showed that users of the HRT drug Prempro (combination of estrogen and progestin) develop Alzheimer’s at twice the rate of those taking a placebo.

Last year, JAMA reported that “our data add to the growing body of evidence that recent long-term use of HRT is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer and that such use may be related particularly to lobular tumors.”

The British Medical Journal recently confirmed the above findings in their most recent issue by stating “long term use of combined HRT doubles cancer risk.”

The fact that estrogen and its derivatives increase the incidence of cancer is no surprise. As early as the 1970’s, scientists such as Dr. Otto Sartorius, Director of the Cancer Control Clinic, have emphatically made public statements stating that “estrogen [and its derivatives] is the fodder on which cancer grows.”

The bottom line, HRT is a gamble and users are betting their lives. “Just say no” to FDA approved drugs and DARE to fire the doctor who prescribes HRT medication. Seek out natural medicine or face the consequences of becoming a life-time asset of the pharmaceutical industry.
