Hormone Replacement Therapy

I came across an article about a newly published study with findings that show hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is even riskier than previously thought. The findings apply only to estrogen-plus-progestin, or combined hormone therapy, not estrogen-alone therapy. If you want to read the full story, here's the link: Study Shows HRT Even Riskier Than Thought (this link will only be good for 90 days from today.)

If you want more information on hormone replacement therapy, here are a couple links:
