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.

Scarey to know research like this has been around since the 70's and IS NOT presented as viable Facts; by Doctor(s) or Cancer Institutes or other sources. Our industries ignore these & we do too as a whole. After a scare that turned out to be nothing; I was told to get this by a Naturepathy. I am SO Glad I did; & struggling to implement necessary changes. Every little thing you (can do) or (add) or (avoid) can greatly increase your viable health. I highly recommend this book. It its a data base of proven specific ~verified research and though their are Newer book(s) this one is Specific baseline and Not mumbo jumbo that is not researched that one must becareful of. Excellent.
Breast cancer affects 1 out of 8 women. Unfortunately It's becoming more and more common due to GMO, our toxic environment and obesity. I wished I had found this book much earlier.
Estrogen dominance is explained thoroughly and how it is affecting our society. Dr. Lee states that many doctors are unaware of how hormone imbalance can affect our health, and after a recent annual check up in which my doctor was only concerned with my estrogen I concur that this is probably the norm. My doctor dismissed my saliva lab test results, which provided levels of both my estrogen and progesterone, stating she was only concerned with estrogen at my age (pre-menopause). I gave her a copy of Dr. Lee's book on pre-menopause and hope that it will be read and transform her way of thinking, allowing her to help her patients. This book should be a must read for all oncologists, but they will have to be open minded and not be ingrained in the drug industry that seems to really have control of the U.S. health care system.
For those with cancer, this book can be disheartening, especially at the beginning. However, I encourage cancer survivors and those battling to read it through, learn from it, and if you go ahead with or continue conventional treatments - be aware of what foods you eat, the products you are using on your skin and clean your home with, and how natural progesterone can help your body heal. I share with my friends they are their own best defense, and it would be prudent not to count on their health care professional to know everything there is to know outside conventional medicine and what is taught by the drug companies.
This book has been life changing for me, and I feel better than I have felt in many years. I'd give it 10 stars if they were available.
