Experts are concerned that more than 100,000 women have given up hormone replacement therapy after study results revealed that it may increase the risk of breast cancer and heart disease. The experts claim that the study was inaccurate because it used only women over 60 in the study and the results may not be representative of younger women. The study should have included menopausal women who are the most common users of HRT. The study also did not highlight the benefits in osteoporosis prevention of HRT.
