HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY UPS RISK OF BREAST CANCER

Taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT) dramatically boosts a woman’s risk of dying from breast cancer, according to a report published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Researchers pooled data on 12,788 women who were followed for 11 years. Women taking HRT were more likely to have more aggressive forms of breast cancer. What’s more, the study found that women who took HRT were twice as likely to die from breast cancer, compared to women who took placebo pills.
