 The reason why women’s health precipitously declines after menopause http://healthfully.org/rc/id2.html   

The long-term use of NATURAL estradiol (estrogen) and progesterone has been shown to DECREASE the risk of:  Alzheimer’s 83%, Heart attacks 32%, Coronary Heart Disease 50%, Colorectal Cancer 46%, Breast Cancer 73%, Thrombosis 8%,, Osteoporosis Fractures 90%, Macular degeneration 65%, reduces & prevents arthritic join destruction, firmer breasts, Healthier skin (less wrinkles, thicker, 48% more collagen), reduces hair loss, improves cognitive function, less depression and mental illness, and a general feeling of well-being with increased libido. These claims are referenced below and at http://healthfully.org/fhr/.

  

USE OF HRT IS CUTS PHARMA'S PROFITS

WARNING:  BREAST-CANCER SCREENING leads to aggressive treatment statistically that does more harm than good US taskforce concludes

 

 

 These claims are referenced at http://healthfully.org/fhr/id19.html and other pages on this site.  

Unfortuantely, most studies are on the widely used HRT, Prempro, has quite different results, and has been used by Big PhARMA and the FDA to reverse the once come usage of HRT (about 1/3rd of women past the age of 50).  

"I think that it borders on a tragedy that Premarin and Provera [the 2 compounds in Prempro] were chosen as the only HRT treatments [for the WHI Study]”.  Another researcher finds that Provera [MPA]--and no other progestin--blocks the mechanisms that allow estrogen to fight the brain's immune response to Alzheimer's….  Neuroendocrinologist Bruce S. McEwen of the Rockefeller University is unequivocally critical of the study: "I think that it borders on a tragedy that Premarin and Provera were chosen as the only HRT treatments."  “With Medroxyprogesterone [MPA] in Provera you are activating two receptors involved with cell division in the breast," she says, "and that's the culprit, not estrogen [for increased breast cancer]." --Scientific American Sept. 2003


This is the beginning of a concise article by JK on HRT

We certainly are in a health care crisis, ... If we had set out to design the worst system that we could imagine, we couldn't have imagined one as bad as we have.”

 Marcia Angell quote  Harvard Professor medicine, and chief editor on New England Journal of Medicine.  A summation of the points she made in her recent book on how Big PhARMA deceives us go to http://healthfully.org/rc/id1.html 

The FDA & Big PhARMA know what they done when the chose Prempro of the WHI study on HRT, it was to get women off the off-patent estrogen for to fulfill the corporate imperative of maximizing profits.  There is no way to resolve the thousands of positive journal articles on estrogen with the 21st century reversal of findings but for to consider the newer results as more proof of Professor Angels glum observation.

There is an alarming laxity in the production of research, education of public and doctors, and standards of FDA approval for drugs, as well as the monitoring of safety and effectiveness of drugs.  For 2 chapters of the best book on how big PHARMA has manipulated the above and much more by Doctor Marcia Angell (Harvard Professor and former editor of New England Journal of Medicine).

Medical textbooks and Big PhARMA

A reading of Goodman & Gilman, their current (11th Ed.) Pharmacology text on HRT; it was void of the issues surrounding WHI as far as limits on its findings due to Prempro and in particular the effect of MPA on causing various health issues, the positive effects of progesterone, that MPA is distinguished from progesterone.  It explained estrogen’s positive effect upon preventing osteoporosis, and estrogen's failure to ad significiant bone mass (thus necessitating the use of bisphosphonates), and the authors added the cautionary statement “the majority of fractures in postmenopausal period occur in women without a prior history of osteoporosis” at 1553.   Given the overall material in this section, it must be read as opposing the use of HRT or estrogen for preventing the various medical conditions, and totally ignoring the fact that esterified estrogen and progesterone ought to be taken by all women starting at the beginning of menopause and continued thereafter.  

I can only conclude that those who write the chapters is this and other pharmacology textbooks are opinion makers in their field who have a relationship with Big PhARMA--a topic which I have repeated broached in despairing over the destruction of medical science.    Conditions are much different that when I bought my first copy of Goodman & Gilman in 1987, and they won’t change until we have a government that does not depend on big businesses for election funding and corporate media endorsements.  

 

Hormones work, this site is about setting the record right.  There are two very different in effects HRTs, learn about which you should be taking, and why there is a very unfortunate manipulation of medical opinion. A number of researches have spoke out, but they don't have the ability to shape opinion, Big PhARMA does.

There can be no effective control of corporations while their political activity remains."
