OT: 15% drop in breast cancer rates -- that's HUGE!

check out this article in the NYT -- breast cancer declined 15% in a single year when American women stopped taking estrogen replacement.

I swear, we're like the Romans. People are going to look back at us and say "they ate with lead utensils? lined their water pipes with lead?" There is so much stuff we do today that's considered "smart"... and it's actually killing us. HRT was considered a brilliant idea when it started. Now??

actually, any correlation between the two is still speculative and a link is being persued. the connection may seem obvious, but the devil is in the details. the women in the group are mostly over 50 and the rate of onset of breast cancer has not slowed. only the growth and recurrence of tumors was affected. in essence, the women who would have developed breast cancer in their 20's, 30's or 40's still developed it.

OP: thanks so much for posting this info + supplying the link. What an incredible piece of research.

To the 2:59 poster, I agree with you that it may be too early to link this decrease with the drop in HRT use. I also beleive that if there is a link it only accounts for a percentage of breast cancers, those that are hormone sensitive within thie age group. As the 1st poster noted, we seem to be in the dark ages on this and many other medical issues.

I have never taken hormones of any kind (a child of the 60's) and now feel vindicated when this kind of research comes out. But I am cautiously optomisitc. There is still so much we don't know. And for the deadliest forms of breast cancer which seems to affect younger women, this research does not offer any clues.

not so OT after all

OTOH, in today's news there is a study suggesting that for NON estrogen-sensitive breast cancer, weight loss can prevent recurrence. (66%?? did I read that?)
