Why are Doctor Louie and Doctor Christine so upset!
 
They just came across an article in one of their journals reporting on topical hormone replacement for women, being absorbed by children and animals. Surprise, Surprise, Surprise.
They warned their clients 15 years ago about topical flea products and hormones being dangerous for themselves, their children and their pets.
 
Now a prominent endocrinologist in San Diego, Cynthia Stuenkel, MD. reported she had found topical hormone therapies popular with menopausal women could cause health problems for dogs and cats. To quote her, “People were pretty incredulous.” when they read and heard what she had discovered.
 
A few Veterinarians had reported as far back as 2003 they had observed enlarged genitalia and mammary glands. It is scientifically proven in animals depending upon the period of exposure, clinical signs may take months to resolve. Veterinarians caution that lengthily exposure in dogs could heighten their risk of mammary cancer or lead to bone marrow suppression resulting in chronic anemia.
 
In July 2010, the FDA posted a safety announcement about unintended exposure of children and pets to Evamist, a spray-on estrogen applied to the inside of the forearm between the elbow and wrist. The agency said it ha received reports of 8 such as in children since Evamist was approved for sale in July 2007. The children, boys and girls ranging in age from 3 to 5 years, had breast development.
 
This issue is much more prevalent than is being reported. The reason being, they are not considering the possibility of the animals or children being effected by these drugs from topical exposure to the patients using them.
 
The real story is as follows. If the scientific community knows Estrogen causes cancer in animals, why are they using it in women in the first place?
 
The animals have been warning us for decades about the dangers of topical chemicals and drugs. The amazing point of this entire article is the assumption humans are different than animals when it comes to Estrogen causing Cancer in animals and not humans.
 
Here is an excellent link for learning more about the dangers of Hormone Replacement in women. The study included a population of 1,000,000 woman and the findings were that woman on HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) had a 2 fold increase in the chances of developing Breast Cancer.
 

Breast cancer affects one in eight women during their lives. Breast cancer kills more women in the United States than any cancer except lung cancer. No one knows why some women get breast cancer, but there are a number of risk factors. Risks that you cannot change include

  • Age – the chance of getting breast cancer rises as a woman gets older
  • Genes – there are two genes, BRCA1 and BRCA2, that greatly increase the risk. Women who have family members with breast or ovarian cancer may wish to be tested.
  • Personal factors – beginning periods before age 12 or going through menopause after age 55

Other risks include being overweight, using hormone replacement therapy (also called menopausal hormone therapy), taking birth control pills, drinking alcohol, not having children or having your first child after age 35 or having dense breasts.

The fact people are using Spot on Flea products that contain carcinogens on their animals and then letting their children and themselves come in direct contact with these chemicals are another potential risk of developing cancer.

Menopause was considered a normal process in women until the past four decades, when it was deemed a disease, just like child birth. By that I mean you cannot have a baby unless it is in a hospital or have menopause without hormone replacement therapy.

Another potential danger most people do not even consider is artificial sweeteners, IE Aspartame. Check out our link on the down and dirty facts about this lovely chemical that 200,000,000 Americans now consume each year.
