Breast Cancer Awarenss Month
What does horse urine have to do with breast cancer? More than you think. Learn about a new Pfizer drug available since spring that puts women around the world at an increased risk for breast cancer and for other health risks. Also, learn the plight of over 90,000 Pregnant Mare Urine (PMU) mares in a foreign country.
Learn all about this from our guests on Wednesday night and, for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, please share a link to this show and help spread the word to caution other women.
Dr. Ray Kellosalmi is a medical doctor, a leading expert on the PMU (pregnant mare urine) industry and horse slaughter in Canada, as well as a horse rescuer
who, since 1987, has saved hundreds of horses including weanling foals from slaughter at auctions across Canada. While director of a medical center involved with menopausal issues, through his writings and actions from 1995 onward, he became the most formidable medical opponent of equine estrogen and the abuse of horses in that industry. He is a Scientific Advisor to the Canadian Horse Defence Coalition.
