I have read a lot of books on the topic but they are always coming up with new foods/supplements that are good for ER postiive bc. Also, as far as the ER pos/PR neg issue. There is some good information on this site about it. Just type in hormone therapy on the search buttom. There is some thought that being both ER/PR ++ may be better as it means a possible better reponse to hormone treatment; however, I'm not sure if any of that has been proven in studies. There is also some thought that ER ++ and PR neg may be more aggressive and may respond better to Arimidex than to Tamoxifen but again I am not sure if any of that has been proven in studies. However, being ER positive is a good prognostic factor.
