Book Description

March 1 2005 What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About...
Breakthrough Strategies to Lower Your Risk...and Increase Your Chances of Recovery Breast cancer incidence has risen by 60 percent in the last fifty years. Conventional treatment protocols are simply not working-and they may even be harmful. In this book Dr. John Lee, an internationally renowned expert in natural hormones, teams up with breast cancer researcher Dr. David Zava to present a revolutionary hormone balance program to reduce your risk of breast cancer and help eliminate a recurrence if you already have the disease. Learn about: * Conventional HRT and ERT-how synthetic hormones may trigger cancer * The current breast cancer drugs that may hurt as much as they help-and why doctors use them anyway * Risk factors for breast cancer-including the long-term dangers of birth control pills * The unsettling truth about mammograms and radiation therapy * The remarkably protective benefits of natural hormones * The potential dangers in our homes, our water, and food. With its revolutionary program featuring natural progesterone, this book offers a progressive approach to hormone balance that is both eye-opening and empowering.

Product Description

From Amazon

An informative and absorbing read for both medical practitioners and their patients, What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Breast Cancer takes aim at "the breast cancer industry" with a barrage of thought-provoking ammunition.

The book is equal parts criticism and suggestion. Current health treatments, including HRT, receive serious condemnation, and authors John Lee and David Zava carefully provide plenty of medical research to back up claims that excessive estrogen is a main source of cancer-causing irregularities. While the names of all the different natural and synthetic hormones can get overwhelming for the lay reader, with perseverance your new vocabulary of terms like androstenedione, estradiol, and cortisol will enable you to communicate more effectively with your doctors. The authors credit these hormones not just with a role in cancer, but with culpability for everything from insomnia and acne to fatigue and migraines. A full chapter extols the virtues of natural progesterone cream, and urges women to order their own saliva tests for proper evaluation of their hormone levels.

Diet and exercise recommendations are simple, outlining reasons to limit fats, sugars, and meats while increasing vegetables and adding a multivitamin. These recommendations extend to adolescents and urge getting off the couch and beginning a gentle exercise program to women of all ages and in each stage of life. --Jill Lightner --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good main point, wretched presentation July 18 2002
Format:Hardcover
Overall this book seems to have a valuable message: all women should have a saliva test for certain hormones, and when there is a lack of progesterone in particular, it should be taken by using a salve, thus preventing breast cancer or minimizing its spread. The worthlessness of synthetic mixed progestins compared with real progesterone was known for decades, and the recent expose on HRT using progestins should NOT discourage women from doing it effectively!
There are a number of lifestyle messages that seem very reasonable, such as avoiding mammograms, some better than average diet advice, and warnings on the toxicity of so many prescription drugs. Other claims such as environmental toxins being major causes of cancer are unproven.
But the overall problem with this book is that there was no quantitative data on the effects of any recommended intervention. There was no data on % of women who contracted breast cancer who were not taking progesterone compared with those who did. There was no data on how much more lifespan (or how much less all-cause mortality) one could obtain from progesterone treatment. There was no data on the % of women who would actually have the non-cancer benefits of using progesterone. There was no data on increased lifespan or quality of life when the diet interventions were followed.
****
On pp102-104 an example was given of a trial of estradiol (E2) and progesterone (Pg) creams applied to breasts 10-13 days before surgery to see how cell division rates were changed. The findings on p104 seem to relate to the un-numbered lower bar chart on p103. E2 was said in increase cell division rate by 230 %. Since the placebo rate was 8 on the ordinate, 230 % or 2.3 x 8 = 18.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Truth is Finally Told! Jan. 29 2002
Format:Hardcover
Finally a book on breast cancer that explains the REAL causes: (1)environmental exposure to toxic chemicals like pesticides and petroleum products that mimic our own natural hormones, estrogen specifically; (2) nutritional deficiencies from eating junk food that allow these toxic chemicals to inhibit normal detoxification mechanisims that take place in the Liver and Gastrointestinal tract; (3) taking prescription drugs which amount to synthetic derivations of our natural hormones, which inhibit normal cellular communication and can damage our DNA, resulting in formation of hormone-driven tumors; (4) chronic emotional stress which uses up our B-vitamins, essential fatty acids and other essential nutrients needed to maintain our immune and detoxification systems, as mentioned above.
Dr. Lee is a hero and a mentor. I highly recommend that ANYONE interested in the REAL causes of breast, ovarian, uterine and prostate cancers, AND how to prevent them, should read this book, and the two previous books by Dr. Lee, on Menopause and Premenopause, both available on this website!
More and more people are waking up....and beginning to understand the horrible mistake we made by trusting large corporations (drug companies)that place profits before people. Reading books by Dr. Lee will educate us and show us how with a little time reading, we can learn how to take care of ourselves while living in a world that is run by corporations trying their hardest to destroy us!
Read and share this book with those you love!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth my time Feb. 8 2003
Format:Paperback
I recently purchased this book as well as a few others on breast cancer. As a 36 year old woman who was recently diagnosed (3 wks at this writing)with stage 2 breast cancer, I bought the book looking for supplemental info about the role of hormones. What I found on the pages I read truly upset me. Soon, I will be getting chemotherapy follwed by radiation therapy and, according to Lee, neither work. Talk about draining my hope, I literally sat sobbing on my sofa thinking I was doomed. I want to say that I couldn't even get through half of this book and decided that I would not be keeping this book in my home. This is not to say that treatment options are good as they are, they definitely need much more reasearch. Doctors also need to give patients more info on the role of diet as it relates to hormones. To an extent, this book provided Dr Lee with a forum to criticize doctors, treatments, statistics, etc. while offering no solid proven alternative treatments for women who are reading his book that currently have the disease!
.
As a breast cancer patient, I would not recommend this book to any woman who currently has or ever had the disease. In my opinion, a much better book with a gentler approach is "Dr Susan Love's Breast Book". For someone looking to make dietary/lifestyle changes, I liked the most recent book by Jane A Plant which has many of the same dietary recommendations as the "Fit for Life" diet plan written by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond over 15 years ago.
