New study on hormone replacement therapy
The Womens Health Initiative says it has released the final word on hormone replacement therapy.
Researchers say healthy women who recently entered menopause can safely take hormones for a brief amount of time.
However, long-term use of the therapy is now discouraged because it can lead to heart problems.
That is the opposite of what was previously thought.
The findings are published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
