Women who take hormone replacement therapy for 10 years after the menopauseÂ have far less chance of suffering heart failure, heart attack,Â or of dying, researchÂ shows.
Post-menopausal women who do take the therapy run no extra risk of developing cancer, deep vein thrombosis or having a stroke, according to the study, which has reopened the debate about the pros and cons of HRT.
The authors of the findings, which come from the longest-running randomised intervention trial of HRT, hope to reduce anxiety about using the drugs.
