There are many potential causes and contributing factors with regard to the development of breast cancer, which may include prior use of oral/chemical contraceptives, vaccines, genetically modified foods, nutritionally deficient diets, electromagnetic fields, cell phones, ionizing radiation from mammograms and TSA body scanners, etcetera. However, I believe that all cells in the body have receptors for estrogens, progesterone and other hormones, which explains why they are all responsive to the effects of these hormones. I don't like the term "estrogen dominance" because it makes you believe the levels of estrogens are higher than the levels of progesterone. We know that in the postmenopausal period both estradiol and progesterone levels are low. That explains why when we restore hormone levels to youthful levels and when we restore the hormonal rhythm patients regain their sense of well being. Unfortunately, many doctors believe that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy should be avoided in women with "estrogen receptor positive" tumors even when there is no evidence whatsoever that it cancer is caused by estrogens. Why on earth would the body make hormones if they caused cancer?

It looks like we agree on many points but you may have missed the fact that Dick Morris and Eileen McGann wrote the article. It is not unusual that pharmaceuticals are being recalled so I don't agree that the testing of pharmaceuticals is always rigorous or unbiased. We have pharmaceutical companies conducting research on their own products. Many pharmaceuticals are rushed to market.

I agree. Thank you for sharing your link. Heating food destroys enzymes and essential nutrients. Many vegetables do not need to cooked. They can be eaten raw in a salad, juiced in a juicer, or mixed into a smoothie using a high speed blender. There are many ways that sprouts, raw fruits and vegetables can be incorporated into a healthy diet.

The following should not be construed as medical advice for which I refer you to a physician who can attend to you personally. However, I will make some general comments.

It is difficult to compare dosages of EDTA, vitamin E, and Coumadin as they are completely different. Patients will likely benefit from using a combination of supplements that are mentioned in this article. Any substitution and adjustment in dosages of vitamin E or EDTA should be done under the guidance of a qualified physician who will monitor the patient's clinical status and laboratory parameters. One good source is the physician's directory of ACAM at www.acamnet.org.

Chorionic gonadotrophin derived from horse urine is not used at all for humans. Only HUMAN Chorionic Gonadotrophin (HCG) should be used for humans. We have no information about the use of animal derived chorionic gonadotrophin in humans.

As far as I know, Mike Adams does not plagiarize. He does provide the sources for his articles. The information that he brings to our attention is as relevant today is at was 12 years ago. I don't expect him to only present material that nobody has ever written about before.

In addition to creating original content for my website, I repost information from other blogs and websites too. The more people spread the word about important health information, no matter how old it is, the better. I am grateful for the information that Mike Adams has brought to my attention.

In general, homeopathic remedies can be combined with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and most other treatments.

The following should not be construed as medical advice for which I refer you to a physician who can attend to you personally. However, I will make some general comments.

Being bedridden or immobile for prolonged periods is a known risk factor for the development of blood clots or deep venous thrombosis. Coumadin is a drug with known side effects that can be very serious and that often affect the skin. If the causative factor of the blood clot no longer exists (such as no longer being bedridden), I believe it is safe to stop taking Coumadin and to consider taking alternatives. However, even the alternatives may not be necessary if the patient is longer at risk of developing blood clots.

I am not aware of any adverse interactions between Coumadin and HCG, so I don't discourage patients who are taking Coumadin from using HCG. As you discovered, Coumadin is a drug which is known to have very serious side effects. Patients are advised and scared into never discontinuing this drug because of the potential of developing blood clots. However, if the underlying risk factors for the development of blood clots no longer exist, then the patient may consider discontinuing the Coumadin after consulting with a competent physician. The Coumadin alternatives in this article may help provide a safety net and help patients live without Coumadin without putting themselves at risk.
