Could medical treatment, such as hormone replacement therapy, be creating lung cancer in women?.......This Medical Research news seems to suggest that is the case.
The research article states:
"More women are dying now from lung cancer than from breast cancer," said senior author Richard Pietras, Weinberg's research mentor at the University of California at Los Angeles. "We followed one of the clues as to why this is happening, namely that estrogen drives the growth of certain types of lung cancer in women.".....
......To see if they could block this growth, the team started with the enzyme aromatase. It presented a natural target because aromatase converts testosterone into estradiol, a potent form of estrogen also used in hormone replacement therapy.......
I am certain we won't being hearing these research facts repeated by the pro-smoking ban non-profits........they want you to believe that secondhand smoke is the cause of all ills in society.
