  HRT and Breast Cancer Friday 8 August 2003  
A study of over a million women in the UK on hormone replacement therapy publishes its results today. The largest single study of its kind, it provides strong evidence that using combination HRT is associated with a substantially greater risk of breast cancer.

Dr John Toy, Medical Director of Cancer Research UK and Malcolm Whitehead, Director of the Kings College Hospital Menopause Clinic in London join Martha to discuss the findings of the One Million Women Study into the links between different types of HRT and breast cancer.
