It’s not going to kill you to take hormone replacement therapy. That’s the take home message from the latest analysis of the Women’s Health Initiative, the largest and longest randomized trial of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in menopausal women. After almost 18 years of follow up in the WHI, there was no increase in overall mortality, including death rates from cancer, in women taking HRT for up to 5.6 years (estrogen plus progestin) or 7.2 years (estrogen alone). There was a non-significant reduction in mortality among those who started HRT between ages 50 and 59, the group most likely to ...

(Natural News) Hormone replacement therapy is often touted for any number of things; these kinds of drugs are often given to women under the guise of reducing heart disease risk and minimizing the effects of menopause, for example. But are they really safe? While hormone replacement therapy (HRT) first gained popularity for reducing signs of...

The pendulum has swung from one extreme to the other when it comes to hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to treat symptoms of menopause. At first, the replacement hormones—mostly a combination of estrogen and progestin to replace what the body stops making after menopause—were seen as a panacea. Doctors thought they could not only relieve hot flashes and night sweats, but also prevent chronic aging diseases like heart problems and weakening bones. But studies then found that the supplement hormones could lead to a higher risk of breast cancer—and that they didn’t protect the heart after all. In the l...

Conclusion: These data indicate that TBBPA, triclosan, and BPA interact in vivo, consistent with evidence that TBBPA and triclosan inhibit enzymes that are critical for BPA and E2 metabolism. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1329 Received: 04 November 2016 Revised: 11 April 2017 Accepted: 13 April 2017 Published: 21 August 2017 Address correspondence to D. deCatanzaro, Dept. of Psychology, Neuroscience &Behaviour, McMaster University, 1280 Main St. West, Hamilton ON L8S 4K1, Canada.

Conclusions The results indicate increased aircraft noise may be an etiologic factor for ER negative breast cancers. However, information regarding potential confounding factors was largely unattainable. Further research is required to understand how environmental noise may be involved in the pathogenesis of ER negative breast cancers.byHegewald J, Schubert M, Wagner M, Dr öge P, Prote U, Swart E, Möhler U, Zeeb H, Seidler A. doi:10.5271/sjweh.3664

More than 100 women die of breast cancer in the U.S. every day. It's the second leading cause of cancer deaths in American women. But in my opinion, many of those women really die of a tragic medical error. Let me explain… Millions of women in the U.S. have taken Big Pharma's hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Their doctors prescribe it to try to relieve the symptoms of menopause. Like hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings and weight gain. But what the drug companies try to pass off as hormones are actually synthetic concoctions. They are fake versions of the estrogen and progesterone that your body makes ...
