Millions of healthy women should be given drugs with potentially serious side-effects to prevent them developing breast cancer, a landmark study has recommended.

Up to one in 10 women could benefit from anti-cancer treatments such as tamoxifen even before they show signs of the disease, according to an international panel of experts.
But there are concerns the drug could have side-effects, such as blood clots and, in some cases, womb cancer.
In a paper published today in The Lancet Oncology, the specialists call for a radical new approach to identifying and treating patients who are at risk.


How about first removing parabens and other hormone mimicking chemicals from everything from deodorants and soaps and everything else applied topically vic.gif Goes to show how much they really care about people's health

tamoxifen...Apparently in a study group there was a 1% reduction in breast cancer incidence, bringing the cost of preventing one case of breast cancer to $289,421. When taking into account the rise in endometrial cancer and the cost of side effects produced by the drugs, the cost per patient who did not get cancer or vascular disease in the treated group rings in at a staggering $578,842.


No wonder big pharma wants to push this on healthy women rofl.gif

Researchers in the U.S. and Canada say that most women, even when they are at a very high risk for breast cancer, can not increase their life expectancy by taking the cancer drug tamoxifen. Tamoxifen was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 1998 for breast cancer prevention in women who have at least a 1.67-percent chance of developing the disease over the next five years.

The prevention strategy is expensive, according to the researchers. It costs $1.3 million per year for each life saved.


Like Octo says, simply quit using the deodorants with 23% aluminum in them and breast cancer would decline a helluva lot more than taking some drug that binds to estrogen receptors.
