Menopause ABCs: Does Estrogen cause cancer?
Today on the ABCs of Menopause we are talking about Cancer and a Controversial Study that causes so many women to immediately stop taking their hormone replacement therapy.
Spoiler Alert: Many studies have been done since the WHI (Women's Health Initiative) in the early 90s that have since refuted those alarming findings.
The "must-read" book I mention is: Estrogen Matters by Avrum Bluming, MD and Carol Tarvis, PHD.
Disclaimer: Always talk to your MD about your health history to see if there are personal risk factors that would interfere with hormone replacement.
Some Terms used:
MHT = Menopausal Hormone Therapy
