 Dr. Ellen Grant, Lynne McTaggart and WDDTY Newsletter Launch Muddled Personal Attack on Dr. John Lee and on Natural Progesterone by Virginia Hopkins, healthwatch@johnleemd.net Dr. John Lee and Dr. Ellen Grant had a longstanding disagreement about natural progesterone and its effects, but until recently it was a heated debate between physicians. Now Dr. Grant and Lynne McTaggart have launched a personal attack against Dr. Lee in the newsletter What Doctors Don’t Tell You (WDDTY). Dr. Grant’s article about progesterone and breast cancer, titled “Cancer in a Cream?” sounds convincing on the surface, but in truth it’s hopelessly muddled and riddled with inconsistencies and inaccuracies. Dr. Lee greatly admired the early.

Dear Ms. McTaggart, As a physician who has been a proponent and prescriber of bio-identical hormone replacement for over a decade, I reviewed WDDTY’s May 2006 Viewpoint and Special Report on the cancer risks of ‘natural’ progesterone with great concern and dismay. My concern stems from the fact that both your opinion voiced in your Viewpoint, as well as the data presented by Dr. Ellen Grant in the Special Report, grossly misrepresent the medical research and clinical data supporting the health benefits of maintaining optimal hormonal equilibrium via safe and effective bio-identical progesterone or progestogens (not to be confused with synthetic progestins) replacement. My dismay stems from the fact that,.

Natural Progesterone – Cancer in a Cream?

We respond to a contraversial UK report published in the May 2006 edition of ‘What Doctors Don’t Tell You’. The body of evidence gathered by our Network in collaboration with the women out there at the coal face using bioidentical progesterone cream for over a decade is inconsistent with the findings presented by Dr. Ellen Grant and Lynne McTaggart in the WDDTY May 2006 newsletter. In this point-by-point rebuttal, let’s tackle some of the more outrageous statements put forward in their report for the benefit of our readers (and the authors of this WDDTY article) who are perhaps a little confused!   “The evidence is now clear – natural progesterone.

Popular Hormone Therapies Pose Real Health Risks Question: Why are more effective and safer bio-identical hormone options being overshadowed? Answer: Pharmaceutical companies can patent synthetic hormone replacement therapies (HRT) but, because the molecular structure of bio-identical hormones is exactly the same as what is produced in the body, bio-identical hormones can not be patented. “Big drug companies continue to twist and manipulate the idea of hormone replacement to capitalize on a business opportunity,” Dr. C.W. Randolph, Jr. said today. “Despite all the scrutiny synthetic HRT has been under since Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) study was halted in 2002 because of the increased risk of heart attack, stroke, breast and uterine.

Talk about breast cancer and naturally, people think of the disease that is the number one cancer among women. But the truth is that breast cancer is on the rise among both women and men, and researchers think the national obesity crisis may be to blame. With two-thirds of Americans now overweight, we can probably expect more obesity-related cancers. But on the brighter side, weight problems are extremely treatable, even preventable. So to the extent overweight is contributing to cancer, this is one risk factor we may actually have some real control over. Just how we go about getting that control appears to be critical, though. Even among the most.
