Hormone Replacement Therapy
Many women and their physicians have been shocked to learn that conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can actually increase the chance of getting a major disease. The most recent controversial Women’s Health Initiative trial was abruptly halted in July 2002 because it showed that conventional HRT, using synthetic hormones such as Premarin, Prempo, Premphase, Provera, Cycrin, Amen, or any medication containing conjugated equine estrogens (made from horse urine) and a synthetic (manmade) progestin, medroxyprogesterone acetate, increased the chance of some major diseases, as follows:
- 29% increase in heart attacks
- 26% increase in breast cancer
- 22% increase in total cardiovascular disease
