AMA adopts new policy against anti-aging hormones

CHICAGO (AP) — The American Medical Association says there’s no scientific proof to back up claims of anti-aging hormones.

At their annual meeting in Chicago on Monday, AMA delegates adopted a new policy on products such as HGH, DHEA and testosterone used as aging remedies.
With HGH, or human growth hormone, the AMA says evidence suggests long-term use can present more risks than benefits. The risks include tissue swelling and diabetes.

And the AMA says there’s no credible evidence that other hormones, so-called bio-identicals, are safer than traditional estrogen and progesterone products.
The traditional hormones are only recommended for menopause symptoms at the lowest possible dose because of long-term health risks.

The AMA says anti-aging hormone promoters need rigorous studies to prove, or disprove, their claims.

i read a book once written by a doctor (doctors) that says there are natural ways to increase HGH…

excercise (I’m a goner :()

sleep (Ok, so maybe not :D)

protein (hmmm…)

Just thought someone may want to know…

what kind of response are you looking for?? if any??
