    This remarkably informative and hopeful book is straight forward and well researched.  It covers the causes, prevention and treatment of breast cancer.   

    Dr. Lee and his colleagues have gone to great lengths to present meaningful, in depth perspectives on the most important issues regarding breast cancer. They don't shy away from the difficult questions of how money and politics have shaped medical practice. All we have to do is look in the news these days to see that we were fed mis-information about  HRT, and cancer.   This book provides real hope – and real solutions – to each woman’s breast cancer problem whether it be one of preventing cancer in the first place, treating it, or preventing it from coming back.

    The first part of the book covers the origin of cancer, what doctors are typically taught about it, and what you need to know that your doctor might not.

    This book focuses on the use of natural progesterone and diet to prevent or control breast cancer,

    The first chapter discusses where breast cancer comes from and why we can't prevent every single case – we can only reduce the odds.  It describes the process of cancer development and how a cancer cell differs from a normal cell.

    The vast amount of money pharmaceutical companies put into medical schools means that all doctors are extensively trained in the traditional methods of breast cancer treatment with radiation, chemotherapy and drugs such as Tamoxifen.

    Most of the risk factors for breast cancer, such as age, geography, early pregnancy, diet, alcohol, exercise, oral contraceptives and HRT are related in one way or another to estrogen dominance.   Doctors don’t learn much about preventive medicine through the identification and control of these risk factors in medical school.  This book educates you about how to control your risk factors so that you won’t need chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.

    Part 2 provides details on estrogens, progesterone and androgens in women's health.

    Estrogens can be both good and bad for you. How estrogens are balanced with progesterone, the relationship or estrogen to the cells, the liver, the immune system, and what makes estriol a superior, safer estrogen is thoroughly covered in this section.

    Chapter 10 discusses how ‘male’ hormones such as androstenedione, testosterone, DHT and DHEA are also important for women’s health.

    The last two chapters in this section are especially important.  They cover the problems of HRT, ERT, Tamoxifen and Raloxifene. This shocking information is on page 179:  "In case you have any doubts as to the extent to which drug companies are controlling physicians, did you know that pharmacies sell prescribing information to drug companies? That's right. A drug company rep can purchase a list of all the doctors who are filling prescriptions at a particular pharmacy, and find out exactly what they're prescribing. How's that for an invasion of privacy?" The reason you may have problems with these prescription drugs is that the drug companies can make sure they promote heavily to every doctor who prescribes hormones for women, and can check up on them and keep promoting to make sure they prescribe them for all their patients.  This is why part 3 of the book is so important.  It tells you the things your doctor needs to know about hormones but won’t hear from the drug companies.

    Part 3 talks about how to prevent and cure breast cancer by using inexpensive drugs and over the counter creams properly.

    Detailed guidelines are given for using natural progesterone in various circumstances: before menopause, after menopause, with endometriosis, with fibrocystic breasts, to help with PMS, prevent menstrual migraine, and for women who have had a hysterectomy or ovariectomy or are using estrogen. The use of other hormones is also covered.

    A chapter on laboratory testing of hormone levels via saliva explains why it is valuable and gives helpful instructions.

    Nutritional information is given, including "Dos and Don't's of the Anti-Cancer Diet," and the dietary role of soy, meats, fats, carbohydrates and vegetables.

    This third section also covers the effect of environmental xenohormones (from pollution) and other toxins. It discusses whether your liver in good shape and support can you give your body to counteract the negative effect of all these poisons.

    The book was written with great care for scientific accuracy.  Amazingly the authors understand the complex scientific topics well enough to explain them clearly so they are understandable by ordinary people.  Drs. Lee, Zava and Hopkins have carefully laid out the politics of breast cancer, the psychology of it, and the biochemistry.

    The book is equal parts cautions and suggestions. Current hormone therapies are deservedly condemned and Drs. Lee and Zava provide plenty of medical research – 63 pages of citations –  to back up claims that excessive estrogen is a major source of cancer-causing irregularities. They then explain how to use natural progesterone cream to balance the negative effects of estrogen to enjoy the benefits of hormone replacement without the associated cancer risk.

    The authors cover many other hormones – women’s hormones are complicated because there are a lot of them – and explain how androstenedione, estradiol, and cortisol are involved in everything from insomnia and acne to fatigue and migraines.

    Exercise recommendations are simple. These extend to adolescents as well as adults and encourage pursuing a gentle exercise program for women of all ages and in each stage of life.
