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.

While this book focuses on progesterone and diet to ward off or control breast cancer from spreading, it also slams current drug treatments and drug companies, along with mammograms. The information in this book is exactly the opposite of what your doctor will probably tell you. But are you willing to bet your life that your doc really knows what he or she is talking about and not just repeating the widespread word of rich and powerful drug companies or manufacturers of mammography equiptment?
So if you're like me and have just recently found a lump in your breast, take some time to get used to the idea that you might have cancer. Then if you want to know the harsh reality about breast cancer, read this book. It might just save your life.
Dr. Lee is a hero and a mentor. I highly recommend that ANYONE interested in the REAL causes of breast, ovarian, uterine and prostate cancers, AND how to prevent them, should read this book, and the two previous books by Dr. Lee, on Menopause and Premenopause, both available on this website!
More and more people are waking up....and beginning to understand the horrible mistake we made by trusting large corporations (drug companies)that place profits before people. Reading books by Dr. Lee will educate us and show us how with a little time reading, we can learn how to take care of ourselves while living in a world that is run by corporations trying their hardest to destroy us!
Read and share this book with those you love!
I began using the progesterone cream along with a supplement called Diindolylmethane (DIM) and Far Infrared heat therapy and the lump in my breast which was quite large began to shrink and the pain after 6 days was gone. DIM is a supplement derived from brassica vegetables which helps the body and liver to remove excess estrogens very quickly from the body and is highly recommended by many knowledgeable healthcare providers. Dr Lee explains that most estrogen dominance is a result of synthetic estrogens known as XENOESTROGENS which are mainly derived from petrochemical products such as plastics which leach estrogens into our food and water. Also birthcontrol pills are a leading contributor of estrogen dominance and can cause estrogen dominance in our unborn daughters once they begin puberty!! My breast lump turned out to be a fluid filled cyst which according to Dr Lee, breast cysts are a result of estrogen overload and progesterone cream can shrink and eliminate them completely! I am extremely grateful for all of the time and research involved in bringing this lifesaving knowledge into the hands of women and doctors everywhere!! Modern medicine is slowly destroying women's lives and families out of shear ignorance and very poor and inadequate research studies as the drug companies are raking in record profits!!! Something is very wrong in our country. Girls are reaching puberty 4 to 6 years sooner than a century ago, infertility rates are increasing dramatically, men's sperm counts have dropped in half over the last 50 years and women begin suffering from premenopause symptoms 10 to 15 years to early starting often in their mid-30's!!!
Go natural first and read everything you can and self educate. Knowledge is power and Dr Lee will open your eyes to the facts concerning breast cancer treatments and estrogen dominance. This book is a life saver!!
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.
