How does it work?
Estrogen in the female is responsible for causing breast cancer. Cancer cells are those cells that the body is unable to get rid of through its immune system and the count of the cells keeps on increasing. These cells keep on acting against the human body causing the destruction of other healthy cells. In the body, estrogen binds to specific receptors which cause the cancer cells to keep on growing and dividing. Tamodex 20 mg works by attaching to these same receptors and preventing them from reactivating. This prevents estrogen from binding to the receptors and therefore prevents the cancer cells from growing and dividing.
