[Alert] This Menopause “Cure” is KILLING You!
Over the past couple of months, I’ve warned you about the dangers of some prostate cancer treatments.
As a reminder, androgen deprivation therapy (or hormone therapy) can increase the risk of dementia and death.
Today, I have a warning for the ladies—especially women going through menopause are considering the mainstreams #1 “cure”.
You’ll want to read this first… it could SAVE YOUR LIFE.
I don’t pretend to understand what it’s like for a woman to go through menopause—but I certainly don’t blame a woman for wanting some relief.
But if your doctor offers you hormone replacement drugs… RUN.
These drugs can help certain common menopause symptoms like hot flashes… but they can also increase your risk of breast cancer in the process.
I don’t know a single woman who would choose breast cancer over hot flashes!
For a meta-analysis published in the Lancet, researchers looked at data from 58 studies and determined that women who took hormone replacement medicine to treat their menopause experienced an increased risk of breast cancer.
The risks were higher for drugs that included TWO hormones.
And the longer they took the drug, the higher the risk. Specifically, women who took hormone replacements for 10 years as opposed to 5 had TWICE the risk of developing breast cancer.
Based on those numbers, hormone replacement drugs are responsible for about ONE MILLION breast cancer cases since 1990.
The researchers point out that there was no increased risk for women who took the treatments for less than a year. And naturally, they use that finding to encourage women to KEEP TAKING THE DRUGS… but for shorter periods of time.
No thank you!
I’m not going to recommend a drug that I KNOW can cause breast cancer for ANY amount of time.
Fortunately, you don’t need to choose between getting some relief from your symptoms and breast cancer.
Natural solutions like Rhodiola and black cohosh have been shown to relieve MANY of the symptoms of menopause—and they won’t give you breast cancer in the process.
