New Book Takes Wyeth (now Pfizer) to Task for Opposition to Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement

Lane Lenard PhD. and Dr. Jonathan V. Wright’s new book, Stay Young & Sexy with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement slams Wyeth and the FDA for hypocrisy regarding stance on Premarin® and Provera®.

PETALUMA, CA — In the preface to the new book explaining the science behind bio-identical hormone replacement, Dr. Jonathan V. Wright’s co-author, Lane Lenard PhD, takes direct aim at the drug company Wyeth (which was recently acquired by Pfizer) and the FDA for their hypocritical support of the drugs Premarin and Provera while they worked together to ban the bio-identical hormone estriol.   Wrote Dr. Lenard:

Although Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) has repeatedly been proven to cause unnatural and dangerous changes and reactions in the body, it remains available in every pharmacy in the country. The fact that Premarin® and Provera® are still on the market, despite their proven tendencies to cause cancer, heart disease, and other serious disorders, tells us something about the cozy relationship between Wyeth and the FDA, the federal agency that’s supposed to be regulating its products for the good of all Americans, not just Wyeth.

The irony of Wyeth’s anti-Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) campaign is that the company purports to be trying to protect women who, it claims, would be exposing themselves to BHRT’s alleged “dangers.” Yet, the only evidence Wyeth can produce about the BHRT’s alleged “dangers” is that drawn from studies of its own admittedly dangerous, patented, FDA-“approved” HRT products, which bear no relation, chemically or molecularly, to bio-identical hormones. Wyeth’s argument goes something like this: “If our ‘hormone’ products are dangerous, so must theirs be,” as though HRT and BHRT were the same products. 

Conspicuously absent from Wyeth’s arguments, though, is even the slightest evidence supporting the alleged “dangers” of BHRT. Along with the FDA, Wyeth refuses to acknowledge the existence or validity of the hundreds of scientific studies that have been published over the years that support the efficacy and safety of bio-identical hormones, not to mention the dangers of conventional HRT. They’ve recently gone so far as to declare that a benign and long-accepted form of estrogen (estriol) that is produced by every human body and is essential to the proper use of BHRT should be considered an “unapproved drug” and essentially banned from use in the US (despite the fact that Wyeth has marketed estriol for years in Europe as an “ideal treatment” for menopausal women). Their hypocrisy and dishonesty takes the breath away. 

Dr. Wright and Lenard’s  new book has already received tremendous praise from both mainstream and alternative medical practitioners.  Additionally, actress and author Suzanne Somers, herself a champion of bio-identicial hormone replacement, wrote the foreword to the book.
