Abandoning HRT 1 Nov 2007
Have up to one million women abandoned HRT unnecessarily?

Doctors say up to a million women may have abandoned HRT unnecessarily.  A survey of 600 physicians in six countries shows the majority believe worldwide health scares over the use of HRT five years ago were unjustified. But with the medical profession still divided over the risks associated with HRT who should women trust?  Janice Rymer, professor of obstetrics and gynaecology at the department of Women's Health, King's College School of Medicine and  Dr Sacha Howell, medical oncologist at Christie Hospital, manchester join Jenni to discuss the issues.
