English scientists discovered that women’s menopause hot flashes are a good signal to say if they are protected from breast cancer. The stronger their hot flashes are, the higher chances they have to avoid cancer, the experts say.

The researchers from Washington University and the Research Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center are convinced that hormone deficiency which leads to the symptoms of climacteric reduces the likelihood of tumor development. The research involving more than 1000 women showed that ladies experiencing several hot flashes a day in the period of their menopause have about 40% less oestradiol – a variation of the oestrogen hormone. And oestrogen plays a key role in the development of some kinds of breast cancer.
