Sadly, breast cancer is affecting 1 in every 8 women in the United States today and we are seeing women being diagnosed at much younger ages than ever before.
Prevention is really the cure to this disease.
After 25 years of searching for a cure and not finding one, we know there is solid ground for prevention.
I made this video after meeting a number of 20-year-old women who are now breast cancer survivors. I heard the story of a 21-year-old having a double mastectomy who must now live with the repercussions, painful lymphedema in her left arm for the rest of her life.
Women deserve better than this. Women deserve answers and we need them now.
Please see my companion videos which discuss options beyond the birth control pill. We have choices for pregnancy prevention, regulating the menstrual cycle, dealing with monthly cramps and acne.
Hi I'm Cathy and today, I want to report some really great news. Some really important news.
If you’re a woman, or a man, and somehow have been touched by breast cancer, this is particularly important news. It comes from NIH, the National Institute of Health. It’s so important in fact, I want to read it word for word. You can read it too; there is a link below to the article and press release....so you can read it for yourself. So here we go, and I’m quoting,
"Research from the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology in Vienna, Austria, has confirmed synthetic progesterone derivatives (otherwise known as progestin) used in millions of women for hormone replacement therapy and contraceptives, markedly increases the risk of developing breast cancer.”
Wow! Since progestin is not something we would naturally find in the body we can avoid it. We can avoid birth control pills and HRT.
So if you are like me, and know someone whose life has been forever changed by breast cancer, my daughter’s teacher, my cousin’s wife, my good friend, my coworker…..well, everybody has a list……then please pass this information on.
We’re all in this fight together!
Let’s change the odds, because right now we’ve got 1 in every 8 women who will become a breast cancer statistic. So take this information and empower yourself.
Make a change. Stop using artificial hormones like progestin. There are safe alternatives for birth control, menopause symptoms, period cramps and even acne.
It’s time we women use this great discovery by the Austrian researchers to empower ourselves and take control of our bodies!
I know so many women who have been fearless in the face of cancer.
Let’s take that same courage and use it toward prevention now that we know at least one of the many causes of this deadly disease.
Help spread this news. With this new research we can use it to step up prevention so our daughters don't become another generation of statistics.
Thanks for watching...
Please leave a comment after this video, tell me how you and those you know, have been affected by breast cancer AND help spread the message of prevention.
