HGH and Cancer

hgh-cell02

A healthy immune system is very important in protection against cancer, autoimmune diseases, and infectious diseases. In fact as age increases the immune system becomes increasingly weak and unable to protect against cancer and other diseases. As the rate of cancer rises with age at the same time the amount of growth hormone (GH) decreases. The studies showing the benefits of Hgh on the immune system are truely amazing and important for the prevention of cancer. It is important that you click here to read about these studies and benefits to the immune system.

STUDIES SHOWING EVIDENCE HGH PREVENTS CANCER

In earlier testing with human growth hormone there was some serious concern for researchers and physicians about the possibility of getting cancer with HGH therapy. Insulin Growth Factor One (IGF-1) and HGH both stimulated the growth of leukemia and cancer cells in culture and large doses of GH induced cancer in laboratory animals and promoted tumors in rats. However, according to Pharmacia Upjohn (1998) specific tests for cancer causing potential have not been done with HGH and tests in cells in culture and on chromosomes in living animals have not revealed evidence of mutation which is the first step in the development of cancer. Also, Dr. Edmund Chein treated 800 patients with HGH between 1994 and 1996 who were all over 40 which considering their age and the normal incidence rate of cancer means some of them should have gotten cancer and yet none did which indicates a protective effect from HGH replacement. Also, even more compelling is the fact that PSA levels, a marker of prostrate problems including cancer did not increase in any of the male patients. In one case a patient came to Chein with very high PSA levels of 50 to 60 (normal 0.0 to 4.0 and men with cancer 10 to 20s) This patient refused surgery and instead Chein treated him with GH along with DHEA and melatonin but not testosterone. The mans PSA levels came down to a range of 5 to 7. It is speculated that the reason this happened is because human growth hormone stimulated the immune system with its natural killer cells which effectively destroyed the cancer cells.

Also, Renasci Anti-Aging Center says the following on their site , “A number of long-term studies have been underway in the U.S. and abroad for nearly 15 years and have followed over 65,000 children and 6,000 adults treated with HGH. Reports from these phase IV studies are published annually and, to date, none has established a link between HGH treatment and an increased risk of any type of cancer. Recently, a comprehensive study reviewed the real risks facing children with brain tumors who were treated with growth hormone. This population has, traditionally, been considered at high-risk for tumor recurrence. The researchers found that the risk of tumor recurrence was, in fact, lower in the hGH-treated group as compared to the untreated group. Let’s review the specifics…. The Study In this study 1 , one of the largest published of its kind, researchers reviewed the medical records of 1071 pediatric patients with brain tumors treated at the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, England between 1965 and 1996. Of these, 180 patients had received HGH subsequent to their radiotherapy treatment and 891 patients received just radiotherapy but not hGH. In the hGH-treated group, 35 first recurrences were reported while in the untreated group there were 434 first recurrences. As such, the risk of having a recurrence of the brain tumor in the hGH-treated group compared with the untreated group was significantly less, as was the risk of death. These results are consistent with other literature published on the topic indicating that hGH therapy does not increase the risk of tumor formation. Renasci Anti-Aging Center continually monitors data from the following phase IV clinical trials: National Cooperative Growth Study (NCGS), National Cooperative Somatotropin Study (NCSS), Kabi International Growth Study (KIGS), and Kabi International Metabolic Study (KIMS). These long-term surveillance studies, conducted in the U.S. and Europe, continue to be important not only in tracking the benefits of hGH therapy but also in identifying and evaluating potential risks.

MISINFORMATION ABOUT INCREASED CANCER RISK

Some in the Medical Community are saying that those with higher levels of Insulin Growth Factor One (IGF-1) have a higher risk for cancer. Obviously this should cause genuine concern. In earlier testing with human growth hormone there was some serious concern for researchers and physicians about the possibility of getting cancer with HGH therapy. Insulin Growth Factor One (IGF-1) and HGH both stimulated the growth of leukemia and cancer cells in culture and large doses of GH induced cancer in laboratory animals and promoted tumors in rats. However, according to Pharmacia Upjohn (1998) specific tests for cancer causing potential have not been done with HGH and tests in cells in culture and on chromosomes in living animals have not revealed evidence of mutation which is the first step in the development of cancer. Also, Dr. Edmund Chein treated 800 patients with HGH between 1994 and 1996 who were all over 40 which considering their age and the normal incidence rate of cancer means some of them should have gotten cancer and yet none did which indicates a protective effect from HGH replacement. Also, even more compelling is the fact that PSA levels, a marker of prostrate problems including cancer did not increase in any of the male patients. In one case a patient came to Chein with very high PSA levels of 50 to 60 (normal 0.0 to 4.0 and men with cancer 10 to 20s) This patient refused surgery and instead Chein treated him with GH along with DHEA and melatonin but not testosterone. The mans PSA levels came down to a range of 5 to 7. It is speculated that the reason this happened is because human growth hormone stimulated the immune system with its natural killer cells which effectively destroyed the cancer cells. There is also more extended studies supporting this. Check this out.

HIGH MISGUIDED DOSES OF HGH CAN KILL

If direct HGH injections are ignorantly or blatantly used in a far higher and more frequent amount than the body can naturally produce it will significantly increase the risk of cancer. While there is no documented studies that show bodybuilders taking abusive amounts of between 10 and 100 times physiologic replacement levels have increased deaths, medical workers and researchers have seen the unmistakable side effects. In fact, Dr. Robert Goldman, president of the National Academy of Sports Medicine says, “I have seen people die from this. One of them was a 44 year old athlete who died of a massive heart attack.” Athletes that do this are in the same risk category as Acromegalics who have a condition that pours abnormal amounts of HGH into their system. They have a higher mortality rate in cancer deaths, heart attack deaths and death from diabetes. Today even needle injected HGH is administered at safe levels and proper frequency.

STUDIES AND ARGUMENTS AGAINST HGH THERAPY

However, there are professionals that do indicate far greater concern about cancer from needle injected HGH. For example, (Check it out) Samuel S. Epstein, M.D., Professor Environmental Medicine, University of Illinois School of Public Health, Chicago, and Chairman of the Cancer Prevention Coalition is very critical of using any type of HGH and points to prestigious peer reviewed scientific journals showing that elevated IGF-1 levels are strongly associated with major excess risks of colon, prostate, and breast cancers. It would be good if he actual showed these to see if they really apply or exist. However, he then says an amazing statement, “It should, however, be recognized that HGH absorption from the mouth and gut is unlikely to be significant, in striking contrast to complete absorption from injectable medication. Nevertheless, nutritional HGH supplements should be phased out until it can be shown that they do not elevate blood IGF-1 levels.” Here is a strong critic of today’s HGH therapy making it clear that our type of product, Pro-Blen HGH supplement is exceptionally safe compared to the needle injected HGH that he claims he has evidence to show causes cancer. One has to seriously question and investigate if the evidence is really valid and serious that increased IGF-1 increases cancer risk when, for example, looking at the evidence against HGH replacement present in the next paragraph below. In fact the evidence points strongly the other way when looking at the up to date large clinical studies mentioned in the 2nd paragraph below.

A recent study reported in the July 27, 2002, issue of The Lancet, suggests a link between cancer and HGH replacement therapy. Check it out. However, they then say, that the hormone received by the people in the study came from human tissue, a practice that was discontinued when it was linked to the risk of inducing Creutzfeldt Jakob disease. Since 1985, patients treated with HGH have received a genetically engineered synthetic protein, and there are no data on whether this treatment modality is risky. The authors also said the findings should be interpreted cautiously because of the small numbers of patients in the cohort, and they emphasized the need for additional data from other sources. Also there is no evidence has linked HGH to cancer in athletes.

ADVICE ON THE CONCERN ABOUT CANCER

All of this points to very strong evidence that HGH Pro-Blen homeopathic products are safe in regards to increasing the risk of cancer and will probably even prevent cancer. Even if there is a slight increase of risk for cancer the chances are far greater of dying from an heart attack than cancer and tests clearly show HGH therapy strengthens the heart and cardiovascular system. However, the very best thing to do is to take other anti-aging products that have been proven to protect from things like breast cancer.

ASSURED ADDITIONAL STEPS AND INFO LINKS AGAINST CANCER

The following links show in detail how to strongly protect yourself from cancer. If you go to http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag96/96jan1h.htm you will read there the following: “Anti-aging cell renewal hormones, precursor hormones and their metabolites include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, growth hormone, and insulin growth factors (ICF-1 and IGF-2).

The cell renewal properties of these hormones make them ideal anti-aging therapies. However, a significant risk factor in using growth hormones is the possibility that improper levels, or an inadequate balance of these hormones, may promote cancer cell proliferation. This can never happen with homeopathic hgh which is over the counter in the US and exceptionally safe. In fact in 100 years of homeopathic useage there has not been one reported side effect.

Until we have a cure for cancer, following our recommended guidelines should provide women with significant life extension benefits without increased risk of breast (and other types) of cancer.
