Conventional Hormone Replacement Therapy increases chances of breast cancer!
Dr. Susan Lark summarizes this news:
"In a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Chi-Ling Chen, Ph.D., and colleagues found that the incidence of all forms of breast cancer was increased by 60 to 85 percent in women who were long-term users of conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Researchers defined long-term use as 57 months or longer and defined HRT as either estrogen alone or estrogen and progestins (a synthetic and toxic form of progesterone)."
