    Hormone Replacement Therapy can cause cancer

    According to this disturbing article, from the Scotsman, studies have shown that hormone replacement therapy can cause cancer:

    The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which collates existing oncology studies, declared that consistent evidence emerging from studies in the past few years has lead it to reclassify hormonal menopause therapy from "possibly carcinogenic to humans" to "carcinogenic to humans". The agency said studies have convincingly shown that doses of oestrogen and progesterone in combination slightly increase the risk of breast cancer. And oestrogen-only treatment, while posing less of a risk for breast cancer, can cause endometrial cancers.
