“A recent meta-study, which found that menopausal hormone replacement therapy (HRT) causes significant numbers of ovarian cancers, is highly misleading, say several hormone researchers.Furthermore, other recent studies are showing estrogens in particular to be beneficial, causing not just reduction in hot flashes, but “reduction in coronary events, breast cancer, and mortality,” Columbia University endocrinologist Rogerio Lobo, M.D., told Bioscience Technology.

Lobo noted that 13 years have passed since the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) clinical trial was halted prematurely due to some negative results.Longer term data from that study now find the situation to be “reversed in many cases,” he said. “It’s almost all very positive, particularly for younger populations.”
