Doesn’t hormone replacement in females increase the risk of breast cancer and heart disease?

0

In 2002, The Women’s Health Initiative Study demonstrated increased risks of breast cancer and heart disease with synthetic hormones. There is currently no evidence, however, that replacing low hormone levels with natural, or bio-identical hormones increases the incidence of either breast cancer or heart disease. In fact, the risk of dying from breast cancer or heart disease has been shown to be significantly higher when low hormone levels are not replaced.
