People need to realize that ALL DRUGS have risks!!! The increased risk of certain cancers was there before 2002. You should ask your doctor and if they pretend like there are no possible fallouts from taking drugs then find a new doctor. Meanwhile your doctor had no problem accepting free pens, pad, and lunches from the drug company representatives!!! Food for thought

Many of my clients take HRT to help with night sweats and hot flashes. After reading this article maybe it would be better if they just stuck with their Cool-jams wicking sleepwear rather than HRT.

This sounds like another case of I will sue you. It is so sickening. People always suing someone. Did you or all the others ever think a drug you put in your body might hurt you?

Eat more EGGS....4 per day x 4 days per week.....minimum !!!

They will help your body's Immune System and help your body to produce more Testosterone since those levels drop naturally with age !!!

If you don't want to believe this, then do the Research yourself. Google EGGS and Testosterone.

Peole act amazed that big pharma drugs cause cancer. All pharma drugs cause health problems because they are ALL toxic. Imagine all the pharma drugs that are in our water(from human waste and putting them in the trash) also they use them in factory farming which ends up in your food. But people put pink wigs on and run for a cure? The problem is hidden in plain sight. The very people that hold your pink wig runs are causing your cancer- see the profit circle yet? take control of your own health and stay away from conventional medicine.

Everyone wants a pill for something. Even the "natural stuff" can hurt you. Sadly, some will get hurt. But, many will be helped. EVERY pill has a huge learning curve. This lady said she developed cancer in the second breast. If she was not on the HRT, then perhaps she would have developed the br ca regardless of the HRT. If she had Ca in one breast, she should have had a double masectomy. That would have prevented the recurrence.

Take something that is not "natural" to your body - you are running a risk. Every individual sane person should understand that. If you take drugs that are mass produced for pure profits by the drug companies - you are taking the risk and you will pay the consequences.

The drugs Ms. Downing (and sadly thousands of other women) took were synthetic hormones, not to be confused with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, which when done right, actually protects women against a number of different cancers. I have taken bioidentical progesterone, testosterone and estriol for 3 1/2 years and the improvement in my health is nothing short of astonishing. This goes way beyond menopausal symptoms for most women ----- it's age managment health. If anyone would like information on how to find a doctor/compounding pharmacy in your area who is proficient in BHRT therapy, please feel free to email me at holyhormones@gmail.com. Best wishes to all for hormonal health!

The Bible is written all things will come to the light. One can not hide any evil deed from God. That is why the Word is written it is hard for a rich man to enter Heaven. They think they need not God. The void they are trying to fill with stuff, power, or control can only be filled by a relationship with Jesus. God left that void. So much suffering from greed. May the Lord open the eyes of those who have been deceived by man. The Bible also is written if we know to do good and do not it is a sin. We all must stand up for the truth. No greater love than to give your life for another brother. If just one is spared others suffeing will not have been in vain. Go to Ian's Voice Home Page. Read all Mom's journal, blogs, and education.
Guaranteed--this person is having an affair. Too much pent up stuff going on in the head.

NO ONE DESERVES CANCER wHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU
HAD CANCER I do not think a lot of these comments
need to be said It is easy to tell someone what to do when you are not in their shoes. How would you
like to have both your breast cut off. You do what
your doctor advises and that is all you can do.
As for me , I changed doctors because he said there
was nothing wrong with me. Come to find out I went
through a whole lot when I found out I had cancer
Now I had better doctors who are helping me I did not deserve to go through cancer no one does

Its hard to believe that the hospitals, the doctors, and the system itself make cancer the worst thing you'll ever experience. No, it doesn't have to be that way, but they make it that way to make sure you aren't going to sue them when you come out of treatment in way worse shape than you went in.

You might not even need further treatment, but you're going to get it, IFIFIFIF you have insurance. IFIFIF you have insurance, you're going to get placed on a track call Protocol, whether your case requires the standard protocol or not. And if something goes terribly wrong, we can't blame them because well, they tried. If they step off the Protocol Track, they put themselves in line for a lawsuit.

Please don't think of yourself as a cancer survivor - cancer is easy compared to the doctors, the hospitals and the systems who treat cancer. You're not a cancer survivor, you're a cancer-treatment survivor, a hospital system survivor. Cancer was easy in comparison. With cancer you stand to loose your life. With cancer treatments, you're going to lose your financial health, your job, your family, friends, self-respect and then your life.

Don't beat yourself up over how difficult the medical system is, or the horror you feel when you realize it's not there to treat cancer. Its there to make money. Be grateful you have the intestinal fortitude to survive the disease, but also the system you thought you could depend upon...first for a diagnosis.
