Breast Cancer Advances By John B. Symes, D.v.m. (aka "dogtor J



Dear Friends, You've seen the big story in the news for the past 24hours, right? Yes, there has been a significant reduction in breast cancer over the recent past. Halleluiah!!! Authorities are attributing that to the relatively recent changes in the use of HRT (hormone replacement therapy), both in the formulation (now using the low-estrogen formulas) and the reduced number of women taking HRT at all. This simply confirms the fact that estrogens (and excessive progesterones) are a major player in the development of this all-too-common condition.

But it also emphasizes the role of exogenous (outside) sources of estrogens, which includes both dietary and environmental sources. The gluten grains, dairy products and soy are MAJOR sources of estrogen, with soy being the richest of all. It is important for people (including men) to understand this and grasp the difference between lignans and isoflavones, the two basic categories of phytoestrogens. Rather than write a long dissertation, I will refer you to Wikipedia and the Internet ( [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phytoestrogens"]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phytoestrogens[/url] ). This should help clear up the raging controversy over whether eating soy (especially the way [i]some[/i] would have you do) is good for you or [i]not[/i]. However, we also need to put "environmental estrogen" into our search engines and read about the other common sources with which we need to deal.

This issue of breast cancer is a [i]major [/i]one and serves as another [i]wonderful[/i] example of this awesome paradigm shift we are all privileged to be witnessing. Between this, the public's new awareness of the role of viruses and cancer (also huge), and the hydrogenated oils issue (the removal of which will also greatly reduce cancer rates), 2006 is ending on a [i]very[/i] high note. Halleluiah, again! No telling what truths will emerge in 2007!!!

That is wonderful about the breast cancer reductions. It was headlines over here last week as well. Isn't it wonderful that changes have been so quickly noted.

I am fast approaching menopause and I have thought about HRT treatment because of the publicity about it 5 or so years ago. I only hope I breeze through the changes and don't have to consider anything to help me.

I have just been for my first breast screening and everything showed up fine and I can now breathe again.

Scott you make some interesting points about soy and oestrogens. This information or similar has been around for a while, but I was not aware about other sources of oestrogens. Thank you for that.

Soy over here has had bad press over the years and I think something has stuck, as I don't particularly like to eat it and now that I can, (because I am more label savvy), I avoid it as much as possible.
