"Stunning" Drop in Breast Cancer Reported

Research by the MD Anderson Cancer center reveals breast cancer rates dropped 15 percent between August 2002 and December 2003, reports the New York Times. Around that same time, hormone therapy for menopause was found to increase risk for cardiovascular disease, so many women stopped the treatment. And scientist doubt this is merely a coincidence.

"Scientists know that hormones can fuel the growth of estrogen positive tumors, which carry receptors for estrogen on their cell surfaces," reported the Times. And estrogen-positive tumors make up 70 percent of all breast cancer cases.

“Everyone kept saying, What is it [that's causing breast cancer]? What’s in the environment?” one researcher told the Times. “The best explanation is hormone therapy.”

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
