SAFE for many women: Hrt (and its reputation and safety) constantly changes as new studies come out.

Statins: At the present time we have no time limit to statin length of therapy. Some recent studies suggest there may be glucose intolerance associated with long term statin use but we don't know if this is significant.

(you can't prepare a tooth with a laser pointer!) some lasers work on soft tissues, others work on hard tissues, some both.
