Hormone Replacement Therapy Versus Hormonal Birth Control
[The following information was gleaned from various sources, including the product information found in the Physicians Desk Reference and the American Cancer Society.]
The Natural amount of normal female hormones (estrogen and progesterone) found in an adult female ranges from between 40 and 500 picograms per day depending on the point she is at in her monthly cycle.
Scientists found that because of the above average amount of synthetic hormone that was being used in HRT, women were at a higher risk for Breast cancer and other cancers, as well as heart disease, diabetes, and other health problems.
The average level of hormone in HRT is between 300,000 and 625,000 Picograms per day, nearly 1000 times the normal amount.
However, doctors and scientists have consistently sworn that hormonal birth control has no such side effects, regardless of the data on hormonal treatment of women for reasons other than contraception. But how could it not?
Hormonal Birth Control contains 20 to 50 MILLION picograms in EACH daily pill.
Not only is that 75 times the amount of hormones found in HRT drugs, but it is nearly 400 thousand times more than what is normally found in a woman’s body, even at the peak moments of her cycle!
Somehow the scientific logic does not flow here. One drug that contains 2 synthetic hormones at one dose is severely dangerous for all women and should be discontinued, but the same 2 synthetic hormones found in another drug at an astronomically higher rate is supposed to be good for you?
