I wanted to share this latest important information with you from Cancer Research about the benefits of progesterone for breast cancer.

More evidence of natural progesterone’s protective benefits for breast cancer. Just a shame it is also being confused with the synthetic versions in the pill.

Why should HRT now be considered safe with one small recent review study as opposed to two of the largest studies ever conducted in the history of HRT, around 2002, which showed categorically that it was unsafe? Women who are suffering desperately are often asked to weigh up the pros and cons, given only little […]Read More
I was delighted to see that more trials on natural progesterone are about to start in five centres in the UK. The information in the article is not new to me as I had read about this study being undertaken by Professor Donald Stein over 15 years ago when I read Dr John Lee’s book […]Read More
