Letter About Breast Cancer Prevention

A letter to Wulf Utian, the Executive Director and founder of the North American Menopause Society, by Dr. Hurlock concerning an article published in the NAMS journal which suggested that "early detection is our best prevention."  Dr. Hurlock suggests that "early detection" is simply not good enough, and suggests that NAMS put more emphasis on exposing true breast carcinogens, rather than going along with the same old anti-estrogen dogma perpetrated by the cancer industry.
