According to published statistics, if you follow 10,000 women who NEVER take one drop of estrogen for 5 years, there will still be 30 women who will get breast cancer. Many women mistakenly think if they suffer without estrogen, then at least they won’t have to worry about breast cancer! Not true! Thirty cases of breast cancer in 10,000 are considered the natural occurrence of breast cancer. The more important question is how many MORE women will get breast cancer if they decide to take estrogen? Of 10,000 women who take estrogen for 5 years, the number of cases of breast cancer increases to 38! That’s only an increase of 8 CASES! Most women who hear those statistics, say, “Good grief, that’s not many more cases of breast cancer when you consider the benefits you’re getting!” And…. what about the other 9,962 women who DIDN’T get breast cancer and were protected against getting heart disease, strokes, osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s?
