PREMSTOPPERS — Premarin® is made from the estrogen rich urine of pregnant mares. The World Health Organization listed the conjugated equine estrogens (CEE) made from pregnant mare’s urine as a known carcinogen.
Numerous class action lawsuits filed by women over the years in the U.S. and Canada point to the cancer causing properties of CEE drugs. There are many examples of these types of lawsuits. Here is one.
In an article entitled, “Cancer linked to menopause drug in new report“, it states “In 2014, Pfizer, which in 2009 acquired Wyeth, has paid $1.7 billion to settle nearly all of the 10,000 hormone replacement therapy claims against the drug manufacturer. Pfizer said it makes no admission of liability in the American settlements”.
In the meantime, the USDA allowed Pfizer at some point during all of this to package their line of CEE drugs such as Premarin® with the wording “conjugated estrogens” in place of “conjugated equine estrogens”.
Unbelievably this labeling fools even some doctors who are either in denial or merely pretending to be for the perks they receive for prescribing it.
Putting a stop to Premarin® ads is one way we can act on behalf of women and horses.
The Ads — Premarin® Cream
Most of the ads you currently see are for Premarin® Cream.
Premarin Cream® ads appear most often in magazines like Oprah, Good Housekeeping and Ladies Home Journal. We have contacted Oprah magazine many times and the ad disappears only to reappear. Oprah supposedly has and loves horses and is dedicated to women’s issues. So Oprah’s advertising of Premarin® does not add up, does it?
Premarin® Cream ads also appear on television and on YouTube as you will see below. You will also see them in those quick advertising spots before the YouTube video you selected begins.
Take a look at this. There are more reasons not to take it, than to take it. Published on YouTube by David O’Neill.
LouisePatti commented on this video, “My dearest, most beautiful cousin, Debi, who was less than a year younger than I was died of cancer from taking some prescription hormonal cream. The last time I saw her she told me what had caused the cancer. I had just been prescribed this a few days earlier. She looked young and healthy the last time I saw her, but 2 months later, she had passed away. She might have saved my life, and God willing, she will help many others.”
The abuse and death of horses does not come into it of course. And yes, there are alternatives to Premarin®.
It’s simple. Be our eyes and ears. When you see an ad for any Premarin® type product let us know using this special Contact Form and we will take it from there. You may want to take a quick look at it so you can see the type of information we need.
