Menopausal Hormone Therapy: Setting The Record Straight

Dr. Avrum Bluming sheds light on why there is so much controversy and confusion about menopausal hormone therapy. Bluming is a medical oncologist and researcher who has been studying breast cancer and hormone therapy for many years. 

Bluming explains the different estrogen replacement strategies, from bioidenticals, to Premarin, to patches, including what we know, and what we don’t know, about these options. He also explains how the notorious Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) study created a disconnect between the science and the headlines.

This episode is the second of a two part conversation. Check out part one for an overview of the risks and benefits of hormone replacement therapy.
