Conclusions: Female sex hormones are important for the preservation of lung function in middle aged women. The accelerated lung function decline with menopause is likely caused by decreasing estrogen levels.

Breast cancer is the most frequent cancer among women especially in the Western world where, despite improved survival, it is one of the leading causes of death (1). Furthermore, for several decades there has been an increase in incidence, though recently there seems to be a stabilization in risk or even a small decline in typical high-risk areas such as Europe and the USA but at the same time a steep increase in typical low-risk societies such as Japan (2). Breast cancer is often regarded as a singular disease, but recent discoveries are pointing to a variety of types of potentially different etiology. Thus, the female...

MN, 50 years old, BMI: 36. Menopause was 7 years ago. No hormone replacement therapy before. She was treated for breast cancer and stopped using tamoxifen two years ago. Asymptomatic. She underwent to a screening transvaginal ultrasound that showed an endometrial thickness of 0.6  cm. Diagnostic hysteroscopy visualized two endometrial polyps. Surgical hysteroscopy was performed with The Integrated Bigatti Shaver (IBS®). The IBS® consists in a 6° angle telescope with an integrated sheath and a working channel in which a rigid shaver system is inserted.

The unprecedented decline in breast cancer (BC) incidence in the US between 1999 and 2004 has been attributed to decreases in combined hormone replacement therapy (CHT) after Women ’s Health Initiative (WHI) study results in 2002 suggesting increased BC risk with CHT use. Questions remain about the plausibility of this explanation given long-term WHI data suggesting an attenuated association.

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
