Breast cancer rates stopped by half in tandem with the discontinuation of hormonal agent replacement treatment, according to a research study released online in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. The research study was reported in the Telegraph in the UK.
The Telegraph stated:
” Dr Prithwish De, of the Canadian Cancer Society, and associates, discovered that usage of HRT dropped from 12.7 percent in 2002 to 4.9 percent in2004
Throughout the exact same duration breast cancer rates stopped by 9.6 percent although the exact same variety of females were having mammography tests.
In Between 2004 and 2006 usage of HRT stayed steady at around 5 percent of females aged 50 to 59 however breast cancer rates started to increase once again.
Dr De composed: ‘The outcomes support the hypothesised link in between using hormonal agent replacement treatment and intrusive breast cancer occurrence and suggest that the sharp decrease in breast cancer occurrence in 2002 is most likely discussed by the concurrent decrease in using hormonal agent replacement treatment amongst Canadian females.'”
The research study’s authors stated these numbers support existing proof of the link in between HRT and breast cancer.
