The finding, an analysis of data from a study known as the Women’s Health Initiative, drew criticism. Other studies have shown that hormone combinations that include estrogen and progestin increase breast cancer risk.
The new analysis involved women who had had hysterectomies and as a result took only estrogen. The study, by Dr. Joseph Ragaz, an oncologist and clinical professor at the University of British Columbia, showed a statistically significant lower risk of breast cancer among estrogen users who did not have a family history of breast cancer.
The great debate continues…estrogen or no estrogen….before you decide to go this route make sure you read about the damages of estrogen dominance.
Remember the above is Big Pharma talking to those who may not remember the 2002 WHI study on HRT. A new generation of women entering menopause – fair game for the pharmaceutical companies.
