An oncologist in an interview with Constantinople on the example of Zavorotnuk painted the chain of the disease. Dmitry Petrovski defends the view that IVF provokes brain tumor development and other types of oncology.
Sources have insisted that actress and TV presenter Anastasia Zavorotyuk has been in a coma for several days. Earlier it was reported that Zavorotik had been battling brain tumor, allegedly provoked by IVF, for several months. However, the actress director refrained from commenting on the diagnosis, noting that the actress herself would say everything in one of the talk shows. At the same time, Zavortyuk's entourage insisted she was unaware and unlikely to participate in the program.
In an interview with experts, Constantinople sought to understand the extent to which rumors of IVF's relationship to the disease were founded. The positions sounded different, including a doctor of medical science, a professor, chief doctor of the State Budget Institute "ART Center" Ksenija Javorovska insisted that IVF could not cause cancer. On the other hand, the plastic surgeon, oncologist, surgeon at the Medical Center for Diagnosis and Prevention Dmitry Petrovski says the opposite:
"The IVF procedure itself, in any case, involves hormonal stimulation of the ovaries. Therefore, most girls resort to IVF at a fairly young age. Therefore, all this together, the girl lived and, accordingly, acquired some chronic diseases, probably have been suffering from some kind of stress, some kind of trauma for a while … And now we're starting to get stimulation of the ovaries so that pregnancy can occur, we're starting to stimulate it hormonally quite powerfully. Those that are used to stimulate pregnancy, they direct affect this part of the brain, let's call it the pituitary, because the hormones that stimulate the follicle or the tonic hormone, which is, say, the main ones in order to achieve maturation of this follicle, which will later become a baby, they are just produced in the pituitary gland and this often serves in the future as, say, the cause of death for those patients who have developed a brain tumor.In addition, hormonal stimulation not only stimulates the normal cells of the female body but also stimulates the tumor cells “.
Petrovski explains: everything has tumor cells. But with stimulation, they begin to divide faster, and anti-cancer immunity does not cope with them, and one person develops a tumor. On the other hand, the direct link between IVF and the development of oncology has not been proven, the doctor admits, but the likelihood of it is "quite high", the Harvard source insisted.
