For most americans then the picture they see in their morning papers february 2, 1937, four chained men on a Mississippi levee is an Eye opener in the truest sense in the lobby of Memphis Peabody hotel.

Lamb in january of 19731 underwent a total Hysterectomy and in july of the same year i was put on per Marin. I am now 51 years old the hormone therapy has helped me a great Deal but since the medical report came out in december 1975 linking the medication to a possible increase in cancer i have ceased taking per Marin. Now i am suffering the usual discomforts terrible sweats Etc. I try to stay indoors in the cold weather thus preventing colds from these Quot Sauna Bath a a i seem to be in. As both of my doctors have recently retired i would like your advice As to whether or not i should continue to take the medication dear Reader i have commented on this before but because of the enormous disservice the news Media have done thousands and perhaps millions of women i will comment on it again. The news Media Many of the participants in the so called congressional bearings and certain so called Consumers groups should hang their collective head in shame for the misery they have caused you and Many like you of a doctor had done the same thing you might sue him for malpractice. Perhaps you could sue some of those who were involved in the congressional hearings what has happened is Plain massive Public malpractice. The news stories entered on the sensational aspects of the increased risk a Small and not fully substantiated a and failed miserably to get the message to women like you that the suspected increase was for cancer of the uterus. You Don t have a uterus so the risk does not apply to you at All. Thanks to unbalanced and incomplete reporting women like you have been sweating it out a literally. That is an excellent example of the i advisability of listening to non medical people about Medicine. The news Media showed they had Little appreciation for the mass effect of their sensational stories on women. I doubt they even eave it a second thought so. If you women who have already had a Hysterectomy have been put through unnecessary pain and suffering you have a right to be indignant id like to take this occasion to again remind people to never change their medicines on the basis of a news Story or something they have Beard on to. That can be a grave mistake for your health. See your doctor who is familiar with your Case and let him decide what is Best for you. In your Case you will need a doctor anyway to i Hope you will take ibis matter up with him. I have had literally hundreds of women write to me with the same question you have asked who knows How Many More women have been caught up in this Blooper i constantly see misinformation about health published or hear items on to that Are totally incorrect. There is Little we can do about this to protect the Public from Quot Mal information Quot because any controlling measures would conflict with the first amendment of the Constitution even our freedoms Are sometimes a mixed Blessing.
