Breast Cancer and Hormone Replacement Therapy

 

 

A very important discovery has been made concerning breast cancer and women who take, or don't take, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for menopause symptoms.

Studies done by Mayo Clinic researchers show that as women grow older involution of the breasts naturally occurs. The more involution, the less chance there is of developing breast cancer.

Studies show that after the age of 70 over half of women have complete involution. Women who never use HRT are more likely to have complete involution than those who do take HRT.

There are many natural herbal remedies that are safer than drugs for menopause symptoms.
