MENOPAUSE and ESTROGEN REPLACEMENT THERAPY
"Estrogen Replacement Therapy places women at high risk."
--National Institute of Health Consensus Development Conference 1984.
"Estrogen replacement increases the risk of cancer during use and for many
years after it is discontinued."
--Obstetrics & Gynecology, 1990.
"Why do doctors give women Estrogen Replacement Therapy (ERT) at the end of
menopause if estrogen is carcinogenic? I believe that menopause is nature's way
of decreasing estrogen formation in woman in order to protect her from cancer.
Who are we to think that we know better than nature. I do not believe any woman
needs estrogen unless she has had a hysterectomy at a very young age."
-- Dr. Lita Lee
"A mounting body of evidence suggests that other sources of estrogen
contribute to the background level of carcinogens in our food environment. Milk,
commercial eggs, and other dairy products often have traces of estrogen. Most
commercial grade meat is laced with it. Birth control pills are based on it."
--Dr. Betty Kamen
"Report in the English journal Lancet, suggested we are awash in a 'sea of
estrogens' which might help to explain the rise in male prostate cancer
paralleling the rise in female breast cancer - men too, have had immeasurable
exposure to estrogens by eating commercially-raised, DES-tainted beef and
poultry for 35 years."
--Forward to The Menopause Industry
"The consumption of foods and beverages which are high in sugar content is
associated with the prevalence of PMS."
--Journal of Reproductive Medicine
