The Truth About Hormone Replacement Therapy: How to Break Free from the Medical Myths of Menopause by National Womens Health Network

Just Say No to Americas Number-One Drug Menopause is not a disease. So why are millions of American women taking a drug for this natural body process? The widespread popularity of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a triumph of marketing and advertising over science. Although HRT and estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) can help some women with certain menopause-related problems, the benefits have been oversold to women and their health care providers. There is no scientifically valid evidence that estrogen prevents heart disease, colon cancer, or Alzheimers. Nor is there any evidence that it keeps you looking younger, preserves your sex drive, or enhances your memory. However, HRT does carry the risk of serious side effects, including certain cancers. Should you be taking such risky drugs to help you get through menopause? The Truth About Hormone Replacement Therapy, written by the National Womens Health Network, will help you decide. Inside, youll discover: The risks of hormone replacement therapy How to talk to your doctor about HRT The truth about hormone therapy and osteoporosis Natural alternatives to relieve perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms And much more This sensible health guide gives you the tools you need to make an informed decision thats best for you and your body. A balanced review of the hazards and potential benefits of hormone therapy after menopause. Graham A. Colditz, M.D., professor of medicine, Harvard Medical School
