The Common Link of HRT increases Breast Cancer and Alzheimer's disease: reduced

Copyright 2004, James Michael Howard, Fayetteville, Arkansas, U.S.A.

In 1985 I suggested low dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) may result in Alzheimer's
disease in vulnerable individuals.  In 1994, I suggested low DHEA may be
involved in triggering cancer.  Both of these have since received support.  It
was recently reported that hormone replacement therapy (HRT) increases breast
cancer in some women.  Today, February 11, 2004, I discovered that the FDA
reported that HRT increases Alzheimer's disease in some women.

HRT is known to reduce DHEA.  In older women, whose DHEA has already declined
naturally, HRT reduces DHEA further.  I suggest this is the common link by which
HRT increases breast cancer and Alzheimer's disease.  HRT reduces DHEA.  (I
invite you to read this in more detail" "How Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
May Cause Breast Cancer" at www.anthropogeny.com/research.html ).
