Controversial studies are emerging that try to suggest that Hormone Replacement Therapy, or HRT, carries benefits that outweigh any risk factors.

New studies (that are being accused as being funded by drug companies) are coming out that suggest that the results of the Women’s Health Initiative study by the National Institutes of Health and the World Health Organization were not telling the complete picture.
The WHI study, which actually ended 3 years prematurely, showed that women who were on Hormone Replacement Therapy for menopause symptoms were more than 50% as likely to develop breast cancer as those who didn’t take it.
Studies continue to show a relationship, but proponents of HRT say the data was taken out of context and showed the wrong age groups were being studied.
They say the benefits of reducing the risk of heart disease and other health conditions outweigh the risk of breast cancer.
Health care providers worldwide still aren’t buying it, as they are increasingly reluctant to prescribe HRT and are looking more into natural solutions to prevent heart disease, osteoporosis, and other conditions that can accompany menopause.
The good news is there are many all natural methods to overcome menopause symptoms without side effects of hormone replacements. Learn more about those menopause methods here…
