All Hormones Are NOT The Same!

Articles like this make me mad enough to scream! Austin Women Navigate the Maze of Menopause.......tells a very brief story about one woman who took "hormones" (I'm guessing they were synthetic, not bioidentical), developed breast cancer, and now tells her friends to stay away from hormones. We have so much work to do to educate women, their doctors, and certainly the media that all hormones are not the same! I also think we need to shift the discussion from bioidentical hormones just relieving the symptoms of menopause (although they are marvelous for that!) to using BHRT as an important tool in preventive health care for both men and women of all ages.
