Recently read in a forum where a user had posted that he got a mail claiming hcg diet can cause cancer.
“Hcg cause cancer and also may aggravate pre-existing ovarian cancer making it a contradiction. There are multiple studies to have protective attributes against particular types of breast cancer. Women who are exposed to high levels of hcg during their pregnancy (thousands of times greater than hcg injections during the hcg diet) tend to have lesser risk of breast cancer rates than women who have never been pregnant.
Most medical practitioners consider a glandular cancer (breast, ovary, uterus, prostate, hypothalamus, or pituitary gland) contraindication for hcg injections because it is not 100% clear about the effect that hcg will have on these glands. Also no practitioner or company wants to take the liability involved and if the cancer coincidentally keeps occuring while taking hcg, it is easy to blame it on anything the patient is taking at the time.”
