Osteoporosis, Fractures in Postmenopausal Women Using Estrogen
The house of cards is certainly coming down. Here we see a ten year study on ERT use and risk of fractures. Basically, the results do show ERT users as “somewhat” better protected. “Somewhat??” Increased risk of breast and endometrial cancer and heart disease and all we get is “somewhat” better protected? And, for those of you into research statistics, the p value was only .05 (the p value is an indicator of how likely these results were due to pure chance and not a protective effect). A p value of .05 is not really anything to brag about.
