HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE
Age Reversal: From Hormones to Telomeres
Dr. Edmund Chein, MD.
“Concerns about HGH and cancer don’t make any sense when you think about it. Younger populations have higher HGH and lower cancer rates. Older populations lower HGH and higher cancer rates. As long as your hormones are all balanced and replaced to young adult levels, your risk for cancer should be lower than another your same age.”
“A study by D. Bartlett and associates tested the effect of HGH on tumor-bearing rats. They found that HGH treatment did not increase the size of the tumor or cause the cancer to spread. In fact, the hormone inhibited tumor growth.”
“Another similar study from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine also showed that HGH inhibited cancerous tumor growth.”
“A study from
“A study reported in the American Journal of Diseases of Children by S.A. Arlanian involved 34 children with brain tumors. Half of this group received HGH as part of their recovery treatment. The HGH group had a lower incidence of tumor recurrence.”
“We do not think that there is any evidence to show that there is any increase in incidence of cancer in growth hormone replacement therapy. In fact we believe that the overall strengthening of the cells, organs, systems and immunities, which HGH typically brings, reduces the rate of cancer.”
Dr. E. Martin Ritzen
“During the estimated 150,000 patient hours of HGH treatment between 1988 and 1992 the incidence of malignancies was either the same or lower than that of the general population.”

Recently the cause of aging has been discovered by medical researchers. It has turned out to be quite simple.
In an experiment at
The injections were then stopped for 6 weeks. During this period all of the remaining saline treated mice died of old age while only 1 out of 20 mice that had received growth hormone expired. The researchers then re-instituted growth hormone injections in the remaining 19 animals for a further 6 weeks. At the end of the experiment 18 mice were still alive.
And so with little fanfare the major cause of age associated mortality was discovered.
Experiments with aged humans have confirmed that the administration of growth hormone brings about signs of rejuvenation such as reduction of adipose [fat] tissue, as well as increases in…muscle mass, bone density and skin thickness.
The major project left in the field of aging is to discover why growth hormone secretion is suppressed with increasing age.
Growth Hormone is one of the most highly-researched natural substances with more than 28,000 clinical studies, spanning over 60 years.
According to the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE), “Current GH [growth hormone] preparations contain minimal impurities, are apparently safe, are readily available and are in unlimited supply.”
Effects of human growth hormone in men over 60 years old

BACKGROUND. The declining activity of the growth hormone-insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) axis with advancing age may contribute to the decrease in lean body mass and the increase in mass of adipose tissue that occur with aging.
METHODS. To test this hypothesis, we studied 21 healthy men from 61 to 81 years old who had plasma IGF-I concentrations of less than 350 U per liter during a six-month base-line period and a six-month treatment period that followed. During the treatment period, 12 men (group 1) received approximately 0.03 mg of biosynthetic human growth hormone per kilogram of body weight subcutaneously three times a week, and 9 men (group 2) received no treatment. Plasma IGF-I levels were measured monthly. At the end of each period we measured lean body mass, the mass of adipose tissue, skin thickness (epidermis plus dermis), and bone density at nine skeletal sites.
RESULTS. In group 1, the mean plasma IGF-I level rose into the youthful range of 500 to 1500 U per liter during treatment, whereas in group 2 it remained below 350 U per liter. The administration of human growth hormone for six months in group 1 was accompanied by an 8.8 percent increase in lean body mass, a 14.4 percent decrease in adipose-tissue mass, and a 1.6 percent increase in average lumbar vertebral bone density (P less than 0.05 in each instance). Skin thickness increased 7.1 percent (P = 0.07). There was no significant change in the bone density of the radius or proximal femur. In group 2 there was no significant change in lean body mass, the mass of adipose tissue, skin thickness, or bone density during treatment.
CONCLUSIONS. Diminished secretion of growth hormone is responsible in part for the decrease of lean body mass, the expansion of adipose-tissue mass, and the thinning of the skin that occur in old age.
