See below: Certain hormones, especially longer use of estrogens, can increase a person's risk of breast cancer. Estrogen is listed as a known carcinogen on the fda web site & there is a class action lawsuit ongoing against premarin (conjugated estrogens). See site: http://m.Cancer.Org/cancer/cancercauses/othercarcinogens/generalinformationaboutcarcinogens/known-and-probable-human-carcinogens.

Investigate: Carefully as there is a lot of hyperbole and conflicting information on this issue. The studies linking hrt to breast cancer only showed a link in one group of women on one type of estrogen/progesterone pill. The women on estrogen alone actually had lower incidences. Don't believe the hype, find out as much factual info as you can and make the intelligent decisions that you feel comfortable with.
