Breast cancer is on the increase in the West and, despite governments spending billions on research and new treatments, your chances of survival are roughly the same today as they were 50 years ago. This controversial book exposes the failings of conventional treatments of breast cancers and offers a revolutionary programme for lowering the risk of breast cancer, significantly improving your chances of recovering from this disease, and preventing a reoccurrence. Topics include: teenagers taking the pill are 600 per cent more likely to get breast cancer; biopsies, mammograms and chemotherapy often do more damage than good; 80 per cent of breast cancers are brought on by environmental factors, such as diet and exposure to toxins and pollutants; natural progesterone helps prevent and treat breast cancer; and explains how moderate exercise save your life. A healthy diet is vital for healthy breasts. The book is divided into three sections, covering the history and politics of breast cancer; the role of sex hormones in breast cancer; and clear, practical advice for preventing and treating breast cancer. The questionnaires help readers determine whether they may have a hormone imbalance.

Review:
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
