What exactly is missing from your diet that must be supplemented by an anabolic steroid? Not sure? Well, we don't know either. To find out, go ask Orrin Hatch. The longtime Utah Senator co-crafted the law that allows this insanity to occur.
It has been 13 years since the publication of the Women s Health Initiative (WHI) studies in 2002 that examined the role of menopausal hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. It can be argued that never before or since has a medical study generated such controversy by the media and scientific community.
Disturbing reports about commonly used drugs mean...what? Screening tests over-used, dietary recommendations revamped. In summary: Science Marches On. That s what science is all about, as new data lead to new conclusions for those able to adjust.
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) used to be frequently prescribed for women undergoing the negative effects of menopause, such as hot flashes and poor sleep. But starting around 2002, when the Women s Health Initiative data were published that found a link between HRT and breast cancer, use of HRT dropped precipitously.
A new retrospective study shows a significant association between reduced rate of knee- and hip- replacement revision and treatment with hormone replacement therapy (HRT). A good candidate theory for prospective trial to confirm, or refute.
October is breast cancer awareness month. Many of us want to donate to help reduce its dreaded toll. But be careful to whom you donate: some groups just take your money and use it to promote an agenda having nothing to do with breast cancer research.
When the federally-funded Women s Health Initiative (WHI) study was terminated prematurely, in 2002, it created a firestorm of both concern and controversy.
It is estimated that over 20 million American women suffer from moderate-to-severe peri-menopausal hot flashes, and that most of its sufferers are not treating them. Some of that non-treatment stems from the federal WHI study of 2002 which seemed to show several serious risks from the most effective form of menopausal symptom treatment, hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
