In 1940 around the time that estrogenic chemicals were first appearing on the market & before the advent of the Pill & HRT, in the USA a woman’s lifetime risk of breast cancer was 1 in 20. Now it is 1 in 8. Estrogen is a powerful hormone that has many vital functions in the body including the initiation and promotion of cell growth.
A woman’s body that is continuously exposed to high amounts of synthetic estrogen, e.g.: the use of oral contraceptives & HRT is sowing the seeds of potential breast cancer. Synthetic estrogen & progesterone found in the PILL & HRT have been listed as known human carcinogens.
