Does HGH Increase Cancer Risks?
Dr. Edmund Chein and Dr. L. Cass Terry did a study that involved 800 test subjects. Their test subjects were treated with synthetic HGH injection therapy, yet there were no reported cases of cancer.
There have also been no reports of developing cancer among any of the patients that have been treated at their clinic, which is significant.
Skeptics have been concerned that since human growth hormone therapy helps normal cells to divide more rapidly, it may also cause cancer cells to divide more rapidly. Dr. Terry believes that considering the fact that their studies were done with 800 people over the age of 40, some of these people should have gotten cancer, just based on the normal rate of occurrence in the over 40 population. Since none of the 800 patients developed cancer, it is possible that the HGH gave these patients some type of protection.
Also, the levels of prostate specific antigen (PSA), a marker of prostate problems including cancer, did not increase among any of Dr. Terry and Dr. Chein's male patients. In one case study it appeared that HGH injection therapy actually reversed the previously diagnosed prostate cancer in one patient.
This patient originally had a PSA level in the 50.0 to 60.0 range, (normal is 0.0 to 4.0). Men with cancer usually have PSA levels of 10.0 to 20.0. This patient's diagnosis was cancer of the prostate, and was confirmed with needle biopsy.
On the patient's urgency, Dr. Chein treated him with HGH injections, along with DHEA and melatonin. The patient's PSA levels dropped into the range of 5.0 to 7.0. Dr. Terry called it mind boggling. He admitted he didn't know exactly what caused the apparent remission, however, Dr. Chein speculated that the human growth hormone stimulated the immune system, including the natural cancer killer cells, which effectively destroyed the cancer cells. In animal and human studies there is a wealth of data showing that human growth hormone revives and rejuvenates the immune system, including the cells that recognize and fight cancer cells.
Concerned About Risks But Still Want the Health and Anti-Aging Benefits of HGH?
HGH injections are hormone replacement therapy (HRT) with a man-made hormone. The most well known authority says:
The same book says:
Lastly, a book written in 1999, by one of the foremost authorities states:
Taking HGH supplements to help the pituitary gland release a more healthy and youthful amount of its own real human growth hormone has not been shown to increase the risk for cancer. In fact, it is believed that the HGH made by the body provides a defense against cancer by increasing the cancer fighting cells and strengthening the immune system.
If you are concerned about the safety of synthetic HGH injection therapy why not consider homeopathic HGH? The articles that speak of increased risks of cancer are speaking of synthetic injection therapy.
Homeopathic HGH products help the pituitary gland to increase and balance its own naturally made human growth hormone production and release. There have been no studies that suggests homeopathic HGH causes an increased risk for cancer.
