Dr. Freya Schnabel of NYU’s Langone Medical Center breaks down the study’s findings this morning with John Roberts.

    Well, hairdresser for 36 years, met many women that got breast cancer after taking hormone therapy after menopause., And, any type of female hormones. I told my best friend Grace this, and she decided to take it anyway. Funny how after 3 months her doctor told her to get mammogram, Yes, in 3 months she had breast cancer. From tons of books I have read, all point to ovectomy to completely cure breast cancer. Why don't doctors tell patients this? Oh, no, they have to be told by some unprofessional in medicine hairdresser. Great book is "Doctor's case against the pill".More maladies. I could tell many stores on that one. Nothing new, back as far as 1975, they knew this.
