Includes bibliographical references and index. --- Review, Network Winter/Spring 2004: Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has been in and out of the news since July 2002, when the important Women’s Health Initiative study dropped its bombshell, announcing that one arm of the study would be halted prematurely because study findings demonstrated that long-term use of HRT had greater risks than benefits. Women who received combined hormone therapy (estrogen plus progestin) in the study demonstrated increased risks for heart attack, stroke and breast cancer, and other popular health claims of HRT, such as improved moods or cognitive capacity, were found to be unsupported. Yet confused media reports, deceptive advertisements and inadequate or biased information from medical practitioners continue to muddy the debate and obscure the important study findings -- making it difficult for women to evaluate the pros and cons of HRT for their personal situation. Goulden now offers women a way out of the maze of (mis)information. In reader-friendly fashion, she reports the findings of both large and small clinical, case-control and cohort studies on HRT that have been peer-reviewed and published in medical and scientific journals. She summarizes major findings, defines terms and keeps statistics to a minimum. The most helpful section of this work, entitled, “Understanding Research Studies,” explains the various different types of studies, how to interpret the data and how to evaluate study findings.
