Though named as such, the Cameron Highlands parliamentary constituency also covers a few areas that are outside the ward. For instance, the FELDA settlement of Sungai Koyan, which is represented by the Cameron Highlands in the federal parliament is located in the district of Kuala Lipis . The incumbent Member of Parliament is Palanivel Govindasamy , an independent. He was previously from the Malaysian Indian Congress , which is part of the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition but was sacked from the party in 2015 due to infringement of the party's constitution.
Those who believe in the use of DHEA claim that it relieves the menopausal symptoms described above without increasing the risk of breast cancer or cancer of the endometrium (lining to the uterus). The risk of each of these cancers may be increased with regular, prescription hormone replacement therapy. There is no proof, however, that DHEA does not stimulate these cancers as well. Women with breast cancer tend to have low levels of this hormone in their bodies. But replacement may lead to either inhibition or stimulation of growth of breast cancer cells.
