Erika Schwartz MD and Kent Holtorf MD Say BioIdentical Hormones are Safe and Effective.
Erika Schwartz and Kent Holtorf recently co-authored a chapter in Primary Care Clinics on Bioidentical Hormones. This is their conclusion:
"The current state of evidence demonstrates bioidentical hormones as a safe and effective option. Risks associated with the use of conjugated estrogen and progestins (synthetic monster hormones), including the increased risks of breast cancer and cardiovascular events, have not been reported with the use of bioidentical hormones."
The Truth About Hormone Therapy in the Wall Street Journal
Rather than rely on Pat Wingert's Newsweek propaganda for the Drug Industry, you may want to read this recent Wall Street Journal article on bioidentical hormones, written by ERIKA SCHWARTZ MD , KENT HOLTORF MD, and DAVID BROWNSTEIN MD.
"There are 25 years of scientific research with hundreds of studies in the U.S. and Europe that have demonstrated that bioidentical hormones, estradiol and micronized progesterone, are equally or more effective than synthetics -- and safer. Yet mainstream medicine has buried its head in the sand and refused to take these studies seriously."

CW Randolph MD comments on the Newsweek attack article:
"Multiple medical studies have linked synthetic hormone replacement therapies, such Premarin and Prempro, to health risks such as breast and uterine cancers, heart attack, stroke. Meanwhile, recent medical research and multiple clinical studies validate the safety and efficacy of bioidentical hormone replacement therapies."
