    Some important mistakes in this book...be aware

    The following may sound like an unimportant fact but it is not. The author claims that the term progesterone is a class of drugs and the most commonly used member of this class are progestins.

    This is incorrect and the mistaken information leads to serious consequences.

    Progesterone is the name of a hormone; the only hormone a women makes after ovulation and to a lesser extent in the adrenal glands. The class of drugs is progestins. So progesterone, the natural hormone, is a member of the class of chemicals called progestins.

    Only progesterone has bio-identical effects on the body. The commonly used progestins such as Provera, are altered chemicals with some very different effects on the body. Provera, for example, causes birth defects. Without high levels of progesterone, on the other hand, you cannot carry the baby to full term.

    Progesterone reduces the risk of breast cancer by 80%, according to Dr, David Zava, co-author of "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Breast Cancer", Provera does not.

    I recommend Dr. John Lee's book, "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause" as a must read for the full story.
