Doubt over results of Pill study

The Women's Health Institute in the US claims that a recent study stating that the long term use of the Pill protects women against heart disease and cancer is a misinterpretation of the data. It wants the study results to be retracted. However, researchers who conducted the study believe their methods were correct and stand by their findings that the Pill resulted in a 10% decrease in risk of heart disease. Experts are also casting doubts on other study results that link hormone replacement therapy with heart disease and breast cancer.
